BIOVITAE is a UV-FREE LED lighting device that kills up to 99.8% of THE CORONAVIRUS, bacteria and, with its microbicidal action, counteracts the exacerbation of symptoms of allergic diseases

How does BIOVITAE work on Bacteria?

The microbicidal action is produced thanks to a special combination of some visible spectrum frequencies (therefore NOT UV) emitted in the range between 400 and 420 nm, which scientific tests, conducted by countless research institutes and universities, have been shown to be harmful to bacteria and other microorganisms (spores, bacterial moulds and bacterial fungi). The special frequency mix produced by BIOVITAE has also been successfully tested on THE CORONAVIRUS.

How does BIOVITAE work on SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses?

The action of BIOVITAE on viruses is expressed through photolysis of phospholipids and oxidation of glycoproteins that make up the pericapsis; and since many viruses share the same structure, BIOVITAE is also effective against other viral species

Why use BIOVITAE, what are the benefits?

Because, unlike all other sanitization solutions, with BIOVITAE you are always protected. BIOVITAE, in fact, guarantees continuous sanitation even in the presence of living beings; unlike other sanitation systems – from chemical detergents, ozone to UV – which can only be used in the absence of people. Continuous sanitization is the most effective solution for the prevention and containment of bacterial or viral infections. It is also an important response to antibiotic resistance to bacteria.  BIOVITAE safeguards the natural resilience of our immune system, providing an effective response for the protection of children, adults and animals given that the light acts in total safety in the presence of a human being and in any environment.

You are always protected
Replace your normal white-light lighting
Use it for every home environment: from the children’s room to the kitchen
BIOVITAE sanitizes the environment and kills (non-inactive) viruses and bacteria.

Does Biovitae emit UV Rays?

No. BIOVITAE is UV-FREE. UV rays emit a violet light and are harmful to living beings, they can only be used in empty environments or by shielding the light source. The white light of BIOVITAE has no contraindication for the continuous use in the presence of humans and animals; and is used as a normal light bulb. Learn more about the difference between LEDs and UV at this link. 

Which tests have been carried out to test the effectiveness of BIOVITAE lighting devices?

The effectiveness of BIOVITAE against SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) has been verified by the Scientific Department of the Celio Military Hospital in Rome and, independently, also by the military laboratories in Germany and Sweden, as well as by the Department of Microbiology of the Sapienza University in Rome and the CEA (Commissariat à l ‘énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) in France.

Look at the bacterial tests.  Look at the virus tests.

Is BIOVITAE light able to eliminate all types of bacteria?

Yes. Because the frequency range emitted by BIOVITAE covers the entire visible spectrum, especially wavelengths from 400 to 420 420nm, a range known as the Soret Band. Efficacy on these frequencies is scientifically demonstrated in all bacteria (GRAM+ and GRAM-), including antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains – such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) – as well as spores, bacterial molds, bacterial fungi and yeasts.

Does BIOVITATE eradicate molds and fungi?

All bacterial microorganisms, including mould and fungi, undergo the oxidative effect induced by BIOVITAE. However, when the colonies turn into mycelia, and thus have reached the typical dark and spongy formation visible to the naked eye, then they are no longer microorganisms but real plant organisms. In this form it is no longer possible to eradicate them through the action of Biovitae (which is, in fact, designed not to be harmful to living organisms such as humans, animals and plants), but it will be necessary to intervene with appropriate mechanical or chemical removal actions (such as scraping or the use of anti-mould/antifungal paints/impregnators). Mould is formed when the environment is unhealthy due to excessive moisture or other characteristics that promote the proliferation of bacteria and fungi. Therefore, the sanitization of the environments certainly prevents the formation of mould. Typology and evolutionary status should be analysed on molds already formed.  Mould is generated by unhealthy environments due to excess moisture and condensation that create the ideal habitat for the proliferation of fungi and bacteria. Biovitae controls and reduces this proliferation and prevents the formation of molds of bacterial and fungal origin.

Is Biovitae a low environmental impact device?

The lifespan in hours of the BIOVITAE lamp is at least 30% higher than traditional “competing” top of the range lamps. This means that the “environmental impact per hour of operation”, i.e. the ecological footprint of the lamp, is among the lowest in the sector.

Is BIOVITAE a medical device?

No, Biovitae is registered with the GMDN (Global Medical Device Nomenclature) in a category created specifically for our technology called Blue-light germicidal bulb/lamp.
The description is as follows:
Blue-light germicidal bulb/lamp “A light bulb thai emits light in the blue wavelength region of the visible spectrum (i.e., Sorel band) intended to destroy microbes (e.g., bacteria, viruses) in an indoor environment. It is designed lo be installed in a conventional lighting syslem, or use in the home or in a clinical setting. This is a reusable device”

This allows registration as a medical device in all countries where there are no restrictions in European legislation.

Biovitae has numerous certifications of efficacy issued on the basis of tests by accredited and certified bodies, including
– military laboratories in Germany, Italy and Sweden:
– the French CEA (Commissariat pour l’Energie Atomique),
– the ICGEB in Trieste.

Which are the current products available with BIOVIATE technology?

The products currently available for the public and private market are the following: BIOVITAE Domus – BIOVITAE Orbit

Does Biovitae prvent contagion?

Biovitae is a preventive device that does not replace pharmacological treatments or other measures envisaged to limit the risks of contagion. Biovitae eliminates bacteria and viruses from surfaces and environments and, therefore, significantly reduces the risk of contagion from contact (surfaces/hands/mucous membranes) and aerosols but nothing can combat direct person-to-person contagion to avoid which only mask and spacing are effective.

What is BIOVITAE Domus?

BIOVITAE Domus is a bulb with E27 connection designed for homes and small offices.

Regarding THE LIGHT BULB A60 9 Watt - 800 Lumen builb, how many Watts does it correspond to in the old incandescent bulbs?

The Biovitae Bulb A60 9 watt bulb corresponds to about 75 watts of an old incandescent lamp.

Where is BIOVITAE produced?

The bulb is currently produced in Germany.

If I install BIOVITAE Domus in a room, will breathing normally eliminate the prescens of viruses and thus cancel the potential passage of viruses (i.e. if a person has the flu and breathes/sneezes in a room, does the passage of the disease become impossible?)

There is no solution that alone can stem this pandemic to 100%; otherwise, masks and physical distancing would have been enough to defeat the virus. Infectious risks can be prevented through good environmental cleaning and sanitation practices. And Biovitae, which is an innovative method of continuous sanitation, is probably one of the most effective methods available today to help contain environmental contamination by bacteria and viruses. But vaccines remain the only effective solution to eradicate a viral disease and will always be a fundamental preventive measure for health.

What is the coverage in square meters of BIOVITAE Domus?

A single BIOVITAE Domus can effectively cover an environment of about 8/10 m2.

How many square meters do they cover?

Efficacy is achieved by irradiation of the cone of light of the surfaces. Normally a cone of light radiated by an LED bulb placed at a standard height (2.80-3.00m) covers an area of ​about 8/10 sqm.

Therefore, for the effective coverage of a 20 m2 room it is recommended to install at least 2 BIOVITAE Domus, at a distance of 1.5 m from each other.

What is the correct us of BIOVITAE?

The sanitization activity of BIOVITAE Domus is carried out through the same lighting device and simultaneously with the lighting function. To ensure the best possible coverage, it is always recommended to install it on the ceiling, at an adequate height and with the light source facing downwards.

BIOVITAE maintains its effectiveness even if installed inside a lamp, provided that it is opaque or transparent and the light source faces the surface to be sanitised. If Biovitae Domus is placed on a piece of furniture, it obviously has limited efficacy because the irradiation is upward.

Biovitae Domus also works in a ceiling lamp. BIOVITAE frequencies are light frequencies and pass wherever light can pass. The proof is that the bulb is also opaline.

Do BIOVITAE products require special adapters or transformers?

All BIOVITAE products are available in the standard provided by the market and do not require adapters or transformers beyond those provided.

Is BIOVITAE compatible with other lighting systems?

Yes, Biovitae Domus is absolutely compatible with any other lighting.

Does BIOVITAE light disturb sleep?

No, on the contrary, there are several studies that have shown the beneficial effects of violet-blue light on the neurological system. Some cities (Glasgow and Tokyo) have already experimented with this with very positive effects in terms of crime and suicide reduction..


Some airlines have installed violet-blue lights on the aircraft to promote the REM phase of sleep and reduce jet-lag.


Does it exist in both cold and warm light?

At the moment BIOVITAE Domus is sold only in cold light (5000°K-Cool White), but soon two models with neutral light (4000°K-Moon White) and warm light (3000°K-Warm White) will also be available on the market.

How long does the BIOVITAE bulb last?

BIOVITAE Domus lifespan in hours is 20,000 (twenty thousand) hours, at least 30% higher than traditional lighting lamps.

How much does BIOVITAE consume?

The consumption of BIOVITAE Domus is 9W.

Can I use BIOVITAE in the children's room?

Of course. BIOVITAE Domus can be used in any environment, even in the presence of children. This is because BIOVITAE frequencies are all apart of the “visible” spectrum, which means no UV is used, allowing for safe consumption.

Can the BIOVITAE Domus bulb be used in a private or even professional environment?

BIOVITAE Domus is designed to work in domestic environments, where there is no evidence of a high risk of contagion among non-cohabiting people. Although it can still be used to illuminate and protect even small low-risk work environments, it is definitely not recommended for professional use. For these cases, please refer to BIOVITAE products specially designed for use in the workplace.

What should be done for the product disposal once it is dispose of the product when it is used up?

The procedure follows the normal procedures for disposal of all electronic products by delivery to the dealer or authorised disposal centres. BIOVITAE has a reduced environmental impact as it has been designed based on the requirements of the Design for the environment (DfE): (i) low number of components (only 5 pieces), (ii) speed of disassembly (the pieces are not welded but interlocked) (iii) easy identification of materials and (iv) reduced presence of harmful metals (BIOVITAE is ROHS2 certified).
