KRONOS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES INC ANNOUNCES PRODUCT DISTRIBUTION TERMS WITH SteriLED.
Los Angeles, CA, Sept. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Los Angeles, CA, September 3, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KRONOS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, INC., (OTC MARKETS: KNOS) ("KNOS" or the "Company"), a revenue-generating, product development, and production company that has significantly changed the way air is moved, filtered and sterilized, today announced it has entered into a pilot distribution agreement with SteriLED, a division of Principal Lighting Group, LLC. (SteriLED). SteriLED has agreed to supply Kronos with its commercial-grade ultraviolet germicidal irradiation product line that was laboratory tested to effectively disinfect objects and surfaces without the need for consumable cleaning agents. These products utilize proprietary and state-of-the-art UVC semiconductor diodes to output a high-power, 275nm ultraviolet light that inactivates the DNA and RNA of microorganisms like mold, bacteria, and viruses.
The SteriLED devices are lightweight and only take seconds to disinfect almost any object like: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), banknotes, mail and packages, personal property, cellphones, keys, work surfaces, such as desks, keyboards, laptop computers, writing pads, pens, and clipboards, and other frequently touched objects and surfaces.
When incorporated to be used with Kronos air purification products, which are commonly installed in homes and spaces such as offices, classrooms, restaurants, retail stores, and other public facilities, the SteriLED's specially designed Light Emitting Diode (LED) module will emit the 275nm UV light to inactivate pathogens on surfaces. Based on advanced research and technology, the UV light SteriLED product has reportedly been tested by Harvard Medical School and Boston University.
Los Angeles Times reported recently that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released new guidance on decontamination methods for emergency situations, such as the one healthcare workers are facing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Any disinfection process would need to kill the coronavirus without harming an N95 mask's ability to filter particles or fit snugly to the skin. Ultraviolet germicidal radiation is one of the methods presented by the CDC, and UV light has generated significant interest from the public. It's already used in hospitals to disinfect contaminated surfaces.
