About us

GELS, a health-tech company, is the distributor of a new kind of continuous cleaning protection using visible light. GELS offer 100%UV-free antimicrobial High Intensity Narrow Spectrum (HINS) LED Light that creates environments inhospitable to the growth of viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast, mold and mildew. Unlike UV-C light, GELS meet international standards for continual and unlimited use around people in homes, public places and across industries. As antimicrobial overhead lighting, GELS can be found in homes, factories, offices, healthcare facilities, transportation and hospitality, and many other places. HINS lighting is also embedded within commercial and consumer products and applications.

Independent Test Results show:

*Testing on a non-enveloped virus (MS2 bacteriophage) showed a 97.12% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 8 hours on hard surfaces. Testing on MRSA and E, coli showed 90% + reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 24 hours on hard surfaces.

Results may vary depending on the amount of light that is reaching the surfaces in the space where the product is installed and the length of time exposure. Use of HINS antimicrobial light is not intended to replace manual cleaning and disinfection practices.
