Technology That Disinfects Surfaces in Record Time

p-operating-roomThe faster an item can be properly disinfected the better. Understanding this, a group of researchers are in the process of creating a technology that can disinfect a surface in less than five minutes by way of a uber-thin coating comprised of ultraviolet light-emitting diodes, reports Forbes. Purdue University researchers hope to fuse the tiny coating into a number of products associated with the commercial cleaning industry — vinyl flooring, toilet seats, door handles and wall coverings to name a few. The coating is assimilated into materials using an electrical field that lights up the object, then kills harmful bacteria that are present. The coating is shadowless and pliable.  Read more
