The BioShift® Pass-Through UV-C Chamber is an Eco-Friendly tool to use alongside established bio-security protocols. It is designed to fix key vulnerabilities within agriculture facilities, while enhancing protocols by killing viruses and other pathogens in a recommended time of 5 minutes, before they can enter your bio-secure farm facility.
The BioShift® chamber uses ultraviolet C (UV-C) germicidal radiation, which provides a cost-effective and immediate way of deactivating the DNA in bacteria and viruses by destroying their ability to multiply and cause disease. There are two factors that directly influence the effectiveness of UV-C disinfection: time of exposure and light intensity. The amount of time UV-C is exposed to any given pathogen is proportional to the amount of killing it does.
There are two sides to the chamber, a dirty (street), and a clean (biosecure) side. To use the BioShift®, simply place an item into the chamber, securely latch the door and press start. Once the machine has started the BioShift® timer will begin to count down. During this time both the dirty side and clean side door will be locked and unable to open. In the event of an emergency, the BioShift® is equipped with various safety and security features, including magnetic door latches and emergency stop buttons. Once the process is complete the objects can be removed on the clean, bio-secure, side and the process can be repeated.
Testing by a nationally-recognized laboratory specializing in antimicrobial, biocidal and virocidal effectiveness showed that exposure of UV-C radiation in the BioShift® chamber for five minutes resulted in elimination of >99.999% of common agricultural viruses.
ADAPTS TO YOUR FACILITY
The BioShift® chamber is available in two sizes! The large chamber is made with four trays and is great for facilities or entrances with a higher volume of people coming and going every single day. The small chamber is perfect for individual use and limiting the import of pathogens through everyday items like cell phones, food, eyeglasses and tools.
KILLS VIRUSES IN A RECOMMENDED TIME OF 5 MINUTES
The two factors that directly influence effectiveness of UVC are time of exposure and light intensity. The amount of time UVC is exposed to any given pathogen is proportional to the amount of killing or inactivation it does. Testing by a nationally-recognized laboratory specializing in antimicrobial, biocidal and virocidal effectiveness showed that exposure of UVC radiation in the BioShift® for one minute resulted in elimination of 99.99% of a common agricultural virus, but exposure of UVC radiation in the BioShift® for five minutes resulted in elimination of >99.999% of the same virus.

Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) is a cost-effective and immediate way of deactivating the DNA in bacteria and viruses by destroying their ability to multiply and cause disease. It is an Eco-friendly tool often used to maximize existing bio-security measures without the use of harmful chemicals or disinfectant sprays. Learn more about UVGI and UV light sterilization
