Bring a New Clean to All FSMA Zones
Reduce microbial growth throughout your facilities with antimicrobial light that never stops working for you.
Bacterial contamination in food processing and their surrounding environments can result in lines being shut down, expensive clean-up crews and harsh chemicals impacting machinery and the environment. If a product has been shipped, expensive recalls (with an average cost of $10 million; (Source: Grocery Manufacturers Association) become necessary, and brands can suffer a loss of value that could take years to rebuild. Continuous cleaning with antimicrobial light is good news for surfaces in food and beverage manufacturing and production.
Routine Cleaning is Never Enough
Every surface is a potential breeding ground and routine cleaning can fail to keep up with the proliferation of microbes. Bacterial colonies re-form after every cleaning. The continuous cleaning action of Vyv antimicrobial light decreases colony numbers over time* by creating an inhospitable environment for them to take hold and grow on production surfaces and in adjacent areas.
Antimicrobial light provides a continuous foundation for a multi-layered FSMA Zones 1-4 defense system.
Installing antimicrobial light in any of these Zones can benefit all Zones. The flexibility of Vyv antimicrobial light can both clean and illuminate entire production lines, plus its unique form factor enables Vyv to be embedded into very hard-to-reach spaces within processing equipment.
Protect your office spaces, your locker rooms and your production areas with the continual cleaning power of Vyv antimicrobial lights.
*Testing on a non-enveloped virus (MS2 bacteriophage) showed a 97.12% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 8 hours on hard surfaces. Testing on SARS-CoV-2 (enveloped virus) showed a 96.76% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 8 hours on hard surfaces. Testing on MRSA and E. coli showed 90%+ reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 24 hours on hard surfaces. Results may vary depending on the amount of light that is reaching the surfaces in the space where the product is installed and the length of time of exposure. Use of Vyv antimicrobial light is not intended to replace manual cleaning and disinfection practices.
