Using UV Lights To Kill Coronavirus: The Benefits and Risks


Ultraviolet light has been used to stop pathogens in their tracks for decades. Does UV light kill the new coronavirus? Find out in the next amazing webinar!

With Special Guests Dr. Rakesh Guduru, Ph. D. & Scott Ownbey

Dr. Rakesh Guduru holds a Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Science Engineering with a focus on medicine. He helped research and develop nanotechnologies for ovarian cancer and neurological disorders and was awarded several patents. Most recently, Dr. Guduru realized the need for guaranteed safe water consumption and the problem that single-use plastic water bottles pose to the global environment and created The CrazyCap. By implementing deep UV-LED technology into a practical water bottle, he started changing the way consumers drink water forever. Dr. Guduru continues to use UV-LED technology in the fight against viruses and germs.

Scott Ownbey is the Regional Director of Germbusters, South Florida’s only disinfection company that uses a combination of UVC Germicidal light and EPA Registered Antimicrobial Disinfectant, offering sanitation coverage that meets the EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2. Prior to Germbusters, Scott was CEO and founder of Holo2Go, where he led research and design for the first life-size interactive holographic kiosks. Since Covid-19, Scott pivoted his engineers from telling stories with light to killing viruses with light.
