Studies have found that computer keyboards can be a breeding ground for bacteria, with some samples testing positive for harmful germs such as E. coli and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Research by University of Arizona researchers also found that the average desktop has 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat! Gross!!!

So, it is important to keep your personal devices, particularly those you frequently touch, clean and disinfected to minimize exposure to germs that can lead to infections. UVIO Direct UVC Disinfection is a powerful tool for keeping the workplace both safe and healthy. Developed by Zgo Technologies, UVIO uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UVC) light to kill 99.25% of harmful microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. The UVC light shines for 2 hours/night over a 4’ x 2’ desktop area to completely disinfect the keyboard, mouse, and primary workstation nightly so they are virus-free and completely sanitized for the next day’s use.


In addition to its disinfecting properties, UVIO Direct UVC Disinfection is also environmentally friendly. It does not produce any harmful by-products or waste, and it does not contribute to the build-up of antibiotic resistance. One of the main benefits of UVC disinfection is that it does not require the use of chemicals or harsh cleaning agents. This means it can reduce the risk of chemical exposure for workers, as well as reduce the amount of hazardous waste that is produced.
