How It Works
Particle illuminates when you’re there, and disinfects when you’re away.
Particle’s Gentle UV (a low dose blend of UV-A light) is proven to eliminate 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Particle also kills many other germs like E.Coli and Staphylococcus.
Safe for You
Particle’s smart sensor turns off Gentle UV whenever you’re nearby, so you should never be exposed to UV light.
Even if you were somehow exposed, Particle’s Gentle UV is 9,000x safer than traditional UV-C disinfecting products, according to the ICNIRP* guidelines. A full 8-hour day under Gentle UV light is the equivalent of 2 minutes in sunlight.
*International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection is the world’s authority on UV safety.
Texas Biomedical Research Institute recently performed rigorous testing of Particle and its efficacy to combat SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Texas Biomed is an independent, non-profit biomedical research institute specializing in infectious diseases. Home to a CDC-regulated biosafety level-4 laboratory, Texas Biomed develops vaccines and therapies to successfully treat some of the world’s deadliest diseases, including COVID-19. Texas Biomed performs both independent, grant-funded research and contract research for several national agencies and is supported by philanthropic organizations, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The Department of Biology at Central Washington University recently tested Particle’s effectiveness against several strains of bacteria, such as Escherichia coli O157:H7, Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Salmonella enterica, and Bacillus cereus.
CWU is a distinguished public university in Ellensburg, Washington, whose Department of Biology focuses on all elements of biology relevant to the individual and to our society. The team of scientists responsible for testing Particle has deep expertise in microbial ecology and physiology, which are crucial for the control of infectious diseases.
Particle in action
Smart sensing technology
Particle has two modes to choose from.
Switch Particle on to illuminate and disinfect your space. When you’re nearby, Gentle UV will turn off. When you leave, Gentle UV will turn back on and continue disinfecting.
The white light will turn on when you’re nearby and Gentle UV will turn off. When you leave, the white light will turn off and Gentle UV will turn back on and continue disinfecting.
For illustrative purposes only. White light will remain on for ~5 minutes before turning off.
Clean is now beautiful
Particle (3200K, 90+ CRI CREE LEDS)
Particle emits beautiful warm white light (3200K), just like traditional incandescent bulbs, and it uses high-CRI LEDs that will upgrade your aesthetic.
Traditional UV-C bulbs
Unpleasant blue UV-C disinfecting bulb
UV-C products have blue-ish-green light that is gross looking, so they can’t light your space like a normal bulb, in addition to giving off harmful UV exposure.
