UV radiation is used to disinfect hospital and operating theatre equipment. What tinkerers in Karlsruhe are now trying is new: UV-C radiation to eliminate corona viruses. The idea was born in September 2020 - the first prototype was produced at the beginning of November. There are research projects on this at the University of Tübingen, and at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). But there is no series production at the university institutions.

The Bridging Assistance III program rule, published on Feb. 15, 2021, subsidizes the purchase of UVC-based youvee® air purifiers by up to 90%. The grant supports the purchase and use of youvee® primarily in the hospitality, sports facility and retail sectors, where effectiveness and high design standards are key to winning back employees and customers.
UVC-based air purifier youvee® with innovative control – The youvee® app is now available in the Google Play Store
In addition to the highly effective air disinfection with UVC against coronaviruses of over 99.9% in the conducted air and the patented air flow behavior, the UVC-based air purifier youvee® also impresses with a user-friendly, smart control via the youvee® app. As of now, the youvee ® app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
UV-C-based air purifier youvee® with integrated CO2 sensor eliminates viruses and monitors indoor air quality
The air purifier youvee based on UV-C radiation eliminates 99.9% of viruses (including SARS-CoV-2), bacteria and fungi in the conducted air and optionally has an integrated CO2 sensor. The CO2 concentration in the room air can be used to reliably determine how high the proportion of exhaled air is. The higher this value, the greater the probability that the air is contaminated with viruses and bacteria released by humans.
