AMSTERDAM, N.Y. – AeroMed Technologies in Amsterdam gave Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-22, an inside look at the technology they developed to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and other airborne diseases.
The company’s Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) technology is used in air filtration systems at schools, colleges, hospitals and health care facilities.
AeroMed gave a presentation during Tenney’s visit Monday, explaining how this infection control technology can be used as a solution for local facilities to reopen safely.
“Today’s presentation from AeroMed Technologies was very impressive and really proved that this is an effective solution to the immediate and future challenges we face with airborne diseases, including COVID-19. It is great to see such innovation right here in our community,” said Tenney. “Reducing the transmission of airborne diseases like COVID-19 is going to help us reopen our economy safely. It’s time to get children back in the classroom and Americans back to work, and I appreciate any solutions that will help us solve this problem.”
Utica College and Mohawk Valley Community College both use UVGI technology in their air filtration systems. Tenney plans to share information about AeroMed’s technology with other businesses through her work on the House Small Business Committee.
