Disinfecting with blue light 

LED Tailor uses blue LED light to create antibacterial environments. Their solutions can be used in critical environments with strict hygien requirements and/or with recurring indoor air quality problems. The antimicrobial properties of the blue light have been studied extensively over the past decade. Thousands of studies have been conducted in institutions around the world and two facts are clear:

LED Tailor uses blue LED light to create antibacterial environments. Their solutions can be used in critical environments with strict hygien requirements and/or with recurring indoor air quality problems. The antimicrobial properties of the blue light have been studied extensively over the past decade. Thousands of studies have been conducted in institutions around the world and two facts are clear:

  • Blue light inactivates microbes through reactive oxygen radicals formed inside the microbial cell and microbes have not been detected to become resistant to blue light like they do against e.g. antibiotics and biocides.
  • Blue light has also been proven efficient to enable photocatalysis with the help of coatings (e.g. titanium dioxide). Photocatalysis creates hydroxyl radicals that make surfaces self-cleaning and air-purifying. The method has been well studied and used for a long time in house paint, air purifier and is being applied in concrete to reduce traffic-related environmental pollution.

LED Tailor’s photonic disinfection is a pragmatic way to effectively reduce infection risk in all premises, from school and office environments to healthcare and food production facilities where the costs of virus and bacterial outbreak are a growing problem. It also allows to eliminate biocides and other hazardous chemicals from cleaning routines.

LED Tailor Oy is a company created and based in Finland. The Swedish branch LED Tailor Sweden AB, now member of PhotonicSweden, is based in Stockholm and has been founded recently to address the Swedish market.
