Research and Development

GloBox: kills 99.99% of bacteria and viruses on common household items (in under a minute).

How it works: GloBox has powerful LED lights that shine ultraviolet-C waves onto your household item’s surfaces, breaking down the germs and killing them. GloBox uses the same UV-C light technology used by hospitals and across the medical industry to sanitize tools and environments, but in a consumer friendly product for commonly used items.

Examples: Whether you are healthy and find falling ill inconvenient or expensive, have an immunocompromised family member, care for a vulnerable loved one, or just plain avoid germs all together,


GloBox: provides a fast and convenient way to disinfect your common household items in just 60 seconds.

How it works: Most UV-C sanitizing products available use inefficient and low cost mercury halogen bulbs. Because they only use a few bulbs, these devices require up to 10 minute cleaning cycles to expose germs with enough light rays to kill them. By contrast, GloBox uses 10 highly tuned and powered LEDs to produce enough light rays to sanitize your items faster. This is similar to the quality used in the medical and dental industries to sanitize small tools and equipment.
 

Examples: When you come home after a long day, your shoes, phone, and mask have been with you for nearly every moment. Because it only takes a minute, you can quickly sanitize these items before bringing those germs into your home. All you need to do is open the GloBox lid, place your items inside, close the lid, and press the start button. GloBox provides a faster way to automatically clean your stuff without the mess or residue of chemicals so you can get back to using it.


GloBox: will run for millions of cycles, and at $199, that’s less than a penny per use!

How it works: GloBox leverages the newest LED technology, which are more environmentally friendly and last significantly longer than competitive mercury bulbs. Because of this, GloBox will last at least 3 years, and over millions of uses.
 
Examples: The average Clorox wipe costs about $0.13/wipe - you can save $0.12 per use - over the lifetime of your GloBox, you’ll more than pay for the investment in your GloBox.

Research 1: UV light kills 99.99% of germs/virus
 
Details: In 1903 Niels Finsen was awarded a Nobel Prize for the treatment of diseases using ultraviolet light. A century later, the same science is used in a more efficient, powerful, and concentrated application. GloBox uses this latest evolution of UV technology to deliver deep ultraviolet rays that break down and kill the DNA of bacteria and viruses in an easy to use in-home device.

 
Research 2: GloBox can kill viruses and bacteria in 60 seconds

Details: Shortwave length light that can penetrate virus and bacteria cells such as UV-C light can breakdown the DNA of the germs and kill them. Each type of bacteria, virus or other disease requires various total quantity of light exposure to effectively kill them. GloBox uses almost a dozen high powered LEDs tuned to the optimal wavelength to provide enough light absorption to destroy almost every type of germ. The FDA has also recognized the effectiveness of UVC light on germs, and supports LEDs as a better solution to toxic mercury halogen bulbs.

Research 3: GloBox is a safer way to clean your daily items.

Details: GloBox uses no harsh chemical cleaners, heat, or residues, and is a fully enclosed device providing the safest way to disinfect the surfaces of your items. It will not operate if the lid is not completely closed. It can detect if the lid has been opened and will automatically shut off preventing any light exposure to your skin.


Niels Ryberg Finsen

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1903

Born: 15 December 1860, Thorshavn, Faroe Islands (Denmark)

Died: 24 September 1904, Copenhagen, Denmark

Affiliation at the time of the award: Finsen Medical Light Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark

Prize motivation: "in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris, with concentrated light radiation, whereby he has opened a new avenue for medical science."

Lupus vulgaris is a form of tuberculosis (TB) that attacks the skin, especially on the face and neck. Since the 1870s it was known that ultraviolet light had an inhibiting effect on bacteria, and Niels Ryberg Finsen thought tissues that had been attacked by bacteria might respond to treatment with light. In 1895 he used concentrated beams of ultraviolet light to treat patients with lupus vulgaris with some success. For a time, light therapy was widespread, but eventually it was supplanted by antibiotics.
