UND Labs To Play Role In Testing COVID-19 UV Light Scanner/Disinfection Systems
The work is supported by a $1.5 million grant from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture
GRAND FORKS, N.D. — COVID-19 detect-and-disinfect technology is being developed and tested right here in North Dakota.
SafetySpect, a California-based company, is bringing its virus-fighting solution to multiple UND labs for testing.
The UV light scanner/disinfection systems could decontaminate an entire surface by zapping it with a handheld ultraviolet light.
The hope is to have dozens of prototype systems manufactured in North Dakota and ready for use in fields including the global food-services industry and the U.S. Air Force.
