Continued Demand Due to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Policy
Strongest Sales Channel in Company History
MOUNT VERNON, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Applied UV, Inc. (NasdaqCM: AUVI) (“Applied UV” or the “Company”), a pathogen elimination technology company that applies the power of narrow-range ultraviolet light (“UVC”) for surface areas and catalytic bioconversion technology for air purification to destroy pathogens safely, thoroughly, and automatically, announces MedLine, its exclusive North American Scientific Air Management healthcare distribution partner, has placed a large multi-unit follow-on order for its patented S200 mobile air purification system.
Since 2015 Scientific Air patented three-stage, advanced UVC Carbon and HEPA filtration systems have been improving indoor air quality 24/7 in high-traffic, occupied spaces at leading healthcare facilities throughout the USA, including Athena Healthcare Systems, Advent Healthcare, NYU Medical Center, University of Rochester Medical Center, The Federal VA Hospital System, Baptist Health South Miami, Kaiser Permanente Medical of California, and New York Health + Hospital Corp.
The follow-on order for our mobile S200 air purification is in further support of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Policy announced earlier in the year to ease visitation in Long-term Care facilities. Under the CMS policy guidance, it provides funding available for long-term care providers looking to make air quality upgrades to their facilities to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Additionally, the air purification sales channel is the strongest in the Company’s history due in part to, increased awareness around improving indoor air quality, the impact of the marketing campaign launched earlier in the quarter, coupled with our expanded domestic distribution reach. Collectively, these combined efforts are positively impacting the Company’s air purification sales channel pipeline across multiple verticals. If the Company is successful in converting the pipeline that includes several multi-million-dollar contract bids, to closed sales, this could impact revenue significantly over the next 6-12 months.
“The CMS Policy guidance acknowledges the critical role that pathogen elimination solutions can play in protecting both the frontline Heroes in Long-term Care and the elderly patients in their care in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and other airborne pathogens,” stated John F. Andrews, Applied UV’s CEO and Director. “This initiative CMS has unleashed, ensures that cost is not a barrier for long-term care providers wishing to ease visitation restrictions that have been in place, but also offers longer term solutions to protect its patients, staff, and visitors. It has been well documented the unimaginable emotional toll placed on families who have been physically separated by strict facility visitation restrictions throughout the course of this 3-year pandemic.”
Mr. Andrews continued, “Healthcare is a key vertical market for us. We work with hundreds of leaders in healthcare facilities across the country where pathogen spread is an ever-present challenge. Our patented air purification technology has been independently tested and scientifically proven to eliminate airborne pathogens including SARS COV-2 (Covid-19). Our Scientific Air Management S-200 is a mobile, easy to use solution to mitigate against the spread of respiratory infections in long-term care facilities creating a cleaner and safer environment for visitation. We look forward to working closely with MedLine who is one of the largest distributors in healthcare as we expand our market share and presence in LTC. With our expanding sales pipeline, our entire team is focused on closing contracts, increasing market share, and executing on our business plan.”
