Disinfects ATM Keyboard, Touchscreen and Credit Card Reader Between Uses

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y.--()--Applied UV, Inc. (NasdaqCM: AUVI) (“Applied UV” or the “Company”), a pathogen elimination technology company that applies the power of narrow-range ultraviolet light (“UVC”) for surface areas and catalytic bioconversion technology for air purification to destroy pathogens safely, thoroughly, and automatically, announces that its wholly owned subsidiary SteriLumen has been notified that the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the patent pertaining to a system to neutralize pathogens on ATM surfaces.
On a daily basis, consumers globally interact with numerous surfaces that need to be touched during normal uses, including ATMs with keyboards and interactive touch screens. As an example, according to the Company’s internal research, as of 2018, there were approximately 470,000 ATMs in the U.S. alone. These surfaces are touched daily by an inordinate number of people that can harbor and transfer pathogens highly associated with illnesses and diseases. E.coli, salmonella and Staphylococcus aureus can be found on these commonly used surfaces and can easily spread to those in the general public if untreated; these bacteria and viruses can be transferred easily to cause serious illness. Banks are reducing the threat of litigation risk by incorporating the use of the best science available to protect consumers from contracting serious illnesses due to deadly surface pathogens found on ATMs.
John F. Andrews, Applied UV’s CEO and Director, stated, “Our global disinfection leadership position is further strengthened with the issuance of this UVC Surface Pathogen Elimination Patent. This patent grant further strengthens our SteriLumen disinfection capabilities and applications to other business sectors that need to safely and efficiently address the ever-increasing problem posed by pathogens on surfaces in public spaces. Our pathogen disinfection portfolio is a valuable piece of intellectual capital designed to build shareholder value. The SterilLumen family of proven disinfection technologies is very well positioned to help businesses globally protect their facilities, employees, and consumers from harmful airborne and surface related pathogens.”
