Immotion Group - Immotion launches Uvisan cleaning solution

Immotion Group PLC (LON:IMMO) said it has launched a range of UV anti-bacterial cleaning cabinets under the Uvisan brand.

The ‘out of home’ virtual reality (VR) entertainment specialist said it has designed the Uvisan cabinets in response to the coronavirus pandemic, and while it had originally intended to use the product just to cleanse VR headsets at its larger partner locations, it has decided to sell the cabinets to third party companies following “numerous external commercial enquiries”.

As a result, Immotion said it had seen “exceptional demand”, selling 10 cabinets in the last week including four to Chichester University, which has purchased the cabinets to protect sensitive equipment against coronavirus infection.

The group also said it has tested the cabinets on a variety of equipment including motion capture suit components, microphones, keyboards, cameras, PC peripherals, headphones and VR headsets.

Uvisan uses ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, a disinfection method that uses UV radiation to kill or inactivate micro-organisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA. The cabinet can clean items in three to 10 minute cycles.

"When the pandemic hit we knew we had to find a solution for our larger VR Partners, our team set about designing a cabinet from scratch and within weeks had created and built the Uvisan range. All the cabinets have undergone extensive clinical testing and are proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in a matter of minutes", Immotion’s operations director Arek Antoniak said in a statement.

"The Uvisan solution is ideal for Universities, Schools, TV Studios and effectively any organisation where the use of a solution based cleansing method is not acceptable. We know many organisations need a guarantee that the equipment their staff and customers are using is safe - Uvisan can provide this level of comfort", the director added.
