Preventing infections

Our Germitec Chronos® UV-C high-level disinfection (HLD) system is the recipient of the prestigious Best Medical Device Prix Galien award, considered an equivalent of the Nobel Prize in biopharmaceutical and medical technology research. This coveted prize recognises excellence in scientific innovation that improves the human condition globally. Chronos (previously called the Hypernova Chronos) employs Yuvee®, our patented, breakthrough technology that uses UV-C light to disinfect ultrasound probes. Replacing chemicals with photons, it is the first patented, chemical-free HLD system available.

Winner of the Prix Galien Award for Best Medical Device
