In an independent study, a Texas-based Lab has certified that the CARTONI UV-C BOXER, the first device specially designed for the film industry, sanitizes against microorganisms & COVID-19, neutralizing objects in just 3 minutes.
Texas-based Microchem Laboratory, an FDA compliant laboratory which specializes in testing, has certified that CARTONI’s UV-C BOXER, equipped with ten medical-grade UV-C (100-280nm) lamps, neutralizes microorganisms, including COVID-19, in just three minutes. The test results make the BOXER the first device specially designed for the film industry to be proven to disinfect.
In independent lab tests performed by Texas-based Microchem Laboratory, an FDA compliant laboratory which specializes in testing, the Cartoni UV-C BOXER was found to disinfect 99.985% of microorganisms, including COVID 19, in three minutes – two minutes less than original estimates. It’s box design, and large chamber allows productions and rental houses to evenly sanitize multiple objects at a time, which may unknowingly contaminate film and video sets.
The UV-C BOXER was tested with 64 plates of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and other microorganisms, including COVID-19. Each was placed on different materials such as glass, composite, and metal to simulate broadcast and film equipment. Additionally, each microorganism was tested at five different positions within the UV-C BOXER’s chamber to ensure that the UV-C BOXER could effectively neutralize them.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide a certified solution to disinfect props, gear, and devices as the world and our industry look to get back to work – safely,” says Elisabetta Cartoni, the CEO of CARTONI Professional Camera Supports.
She adds, “Although designed for the production community, we can see how the BOXER could have other applications in other industries.”
