UVX co-founders Saimir and Kunal demonstrated Zener, UVX's first product, at University of British Columbia's e@UBC Venture Showcase. In the category that UVX was presenting, UVX placed 2nd for People's Choice Award.
UVX is excited to announce that the Division of Infectious Diseases, within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC), has commenced testing of UVX’s core technology: filtered 222nm Far-UVC light produced by UVX’s flagship Zener device. The tests will be conducted at the Jack Bell Research Centre.
