Lighting professionals have an unprecedented opportunity to harness the power of UV light disinfection solutions* to reduce active pathogens**.
Powered by the patented Care222® filtered 222nm technology, HDM from Healthcare Lighting® actively reduces the pathogen load on surfaces – even with people in the space.
About Care222 Technology
Far-UVC light, specifically the 222nm wavelength, inactivates viruses and bacteria at energy levels that do not penetrate living tissue in skin or beyond the tear layer in eyes. According to the International Ultraviolet Association, filtered 222nm far-UVC light has enough range to traverse viruses and bacteria, which are much smaller in size than human cells.
As a result, this UV technology can be used in occupied spaces.
Available in pendant, surface, and recessed fixtures, HDM with Care222 Technology contains a krypton chloride UVC lamp that uses a short pass filter to remove longer wavelengths, resulting in a narrow band of UV light centered at 222nm.
Pendant and surface fixture mounting heights range from 9 ft. to 15 ft. for active pathogen reduction across a variety of spaces.

Reduction of the pathogenic bioburden is a function of fixture run time and the distance to the UV light source, airflow, room size, shadow areas and/or other factors, and the level of reduction will vary within a specific space. This fixture is not intended for use in the cure, mitigation or prevention of disease and is not certified or approved for use as a medical device by the FDA. It is the obligation of the end-user to consult with a qualified Professional Engineer and a Certified Industrial Hygienist, if applicable, to determine whether this fixture meets the applicable requirements for system performance, code compliance, safety (including safety and hazard alerting signs), suitability and effectiveness for use in a particular application design.
