Martin Sembach, Director Strategic Business Development at GoGaS, outlines how the company’s infection prevention products can help venues reopen.

UV-C versus chemical disinfection provides the entire value chain with more than just one key advantage. In brief the key benefits and USP´s are that as UV-C is absorbed by the atmosphere, pathogens such as bacterias, germs, mould and viruses do not have a natural protection against this light spectrum. Hence, applied in the correct way, frequency, intensity and duration, UV-C does more than just disinfecting, it destroys the DNS of all pathogens. Hence, they are unable to reproduce themselves, which very often, when applying chemicals, cannot be guaranteed.

Secondly, UV-C is totally environmentally friendly and neither produces ozone, nor does it require any chemicals.

Corona helper

Can robots become great Corona helpers?

The intelligent robot hands you the cotton swab, you take the swab yourself and the robot hermetically seals the sample and sends it on its way to the laboratory. No contact, no endangerment and no waste of the scarce medical personnel resources.

There are also places of work in the world of work: Office closes after a day with the public. How long do viruses stay on surfaces and in the air? The employees are insecure. But when the work day ends, the robot colleague sets off. Similar to a vacuum robot, it wanders through all rooms and disinfects with UV light. GoGaS Goch GmbH & Co. KG from Dortmund already offers a disinfection robot with UV light.

Shaping the future


GoGaS is providing sustainable solutions for IR, UV and UV-C applications since more than 70 years, hence, they are not jumping into this market with an opportunistic mindset, they simply expand their established and sustainable product offer to their customers, providing them a sort of FIREWALL protecting their business against all pathogen threats, not just Covid-19, but also bacteria, germs, mold and any other virus, as well as MRSA.

You can see this from the overall Firewall slide and how we put our various solutions in a modular way across the entire company and building structure, reducing the risk of infection and reducing the risk of shutdown, which would mean a big loss of business and revenue for our customers every single day.
