R-Zero is a biosafety company making hospital-grade UV-C disinfection financially accessible to schools for the first time.  Interestingly, UV-C light has been used to disinfect surfaces and the air for over 100 years and is the gold standard in hospitals today, proven to reduce the incidences of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) by up to 93%. However, until recently, this tier of UV-C technology has been cost-prohibitive to organizations outside of hospitals.

Eligible for CARES Act, ESSER I and II funds, R-Zero’s UV-C disinfection device, Arc, destroys over 99.99% of surface and airborne pathogens - including coronavirus, seasonal flu, staph, and norovirus - in a 1000 sq. ft. classroom in less than 7 minutes, without chemicals or added labor.. R-Zero is proud to be helping school leaders sustainably raise the level of health and safety in their facilities and build trust among their communities.
