Aero HygenX UV-C Disinfection is Approved By the Canadian Ministry of Health

Biosafety technology company Aero HygenX which manufactures RAY, an autonomous robot that uses UV-C disinfection technology, has announced the product has been approved by the Canadian Ministry of Health. This approval makes RAY the only solution authorised for Health Canada’s safe product registry in this category.

Canada’s top regulatory heath body issued a bulletin in August 2021 announcing new regulatory classification of UV light-emitting decontamination products making COVID-19 claims, and to provide information on the applicable pathways for market authorisation. The new regulatory process is designed to help consumers and industry choose legitimate and effective UV-C disinfection solutions, in a marketplace where many fake products are being marketed.

Commenting on Aero HygenX’s registration as an approved UV-C disinfection provider, Aero HygenX CEO Arash Mahin said: “Health Canada has taken important steps to protect consumers and industry from deceptive marketing practices around UV-C disinfection products, which we applaud.

“Canada’s Ministry of Health imposes incredibly stringent testing requirements as a world-leading public health agency. Under their supervision, Aero HygenX technology was tested against dangerous resilient pathogens, and prevailed. This outcome speaks to the expertise and commitment of our team and the effectiveness of our solutions.”

“With so many claims made by makers of sub-standard UV-C solutions, it can be hard to separate fact from fiction,” adds Mahin. “We know how important assurances, accountability and metrics are for organisations looking to adopt sustainable UV-C disinfection, and this certification makes choosing Aero HygenX easier. We are speaking with other national health organisations and expect further certifications to follow as we expand to new markets and regions.”
