Kills 99.9% of Surface Germs Within 10 Seconds of Contact

January 23, 2012 Leave a comment

Zadro NANO01 Nano UV Disinfectant ScannerThe Nano UV Disinfectant Scanner is the perfect take-along accessory for the health-conscious and germ-phobic. It only takes a quick button press and a few seconds to rid surface areas of 99.9% of its germs. Sanitize any surface in an instant, from counters, sinks, doorknobs, phones, beds, changing tables, baby bottles, and more. Once the UV light is turned off, the surface will be germ-free and ready to use, making it perfect for use with children and pets. UV disinfecting lights have been used in hospitals for years. Unlike typical scanners, this particular scanner uses UVA, UVB, and UVC light to kill the majority of germs on contact. As small as a cell phone, the scanner is the right size to toss in a briefcase, purse, or backpack for sterilization on the go. The scanner requires the use of two AAA batteries (included). On a fresh set of batteries, the scanner can provide more than 4,000 hours of sanitizing use. When batteries start to run low, a red LED will notify you. Tested by independent laboratories worldwide, this scanner is proven to be effective, whether you use it at home, in the office, or while you travel. Because UV light can be damaging to your skin and eyes if not used correctly, a child safety slider switch prevents tampering and accidental activation. Read more
