(PRESS RELEASE) HAUPPAUGE, NY based Santinelli International, the leader in Lens Finishing Equipment, announces that Sios, Santinelli International Optical Supplies, has launched sales of a new FusionUV unit manufactured in the USA by Quantum. Santinelli International and Quantum have developed an exclusive agreement between the 2 companies allowing Santinelli distribution rights of the FusionUV to the US ECP market.

Sios, a fresh, forward-thinking optical supply and accessories division of Santinelli International, since its inception in 2018, has focused on innovation and maintains a true passion for understanding the day-to-day needs of Optometric practices and the Optician. Seeing the industry seeking a safe and effective way to disinfect their frames, Santinelli is now distributing the FusionUV as a solution to this concern.

In just two minutes time, the FusionUV unit uses germicidal short wavelength UV irradiation to kill viruses. Light is emitted from two separate bulbs and is dispersed in an omnidirectional fashion due to the special chamber design. Industrial quality seals contain the UV-C light within the unit. An auto-shutoff switch terminates the cycle if the unit is accidentally opened, for the safety of the operator.

The unit can hold upwards of 12 frames and any frame or lens material can be safely placed within the UV unit without fear of damage. The unit can also be used for disinfecting other items like masks, hand tools, pupilometers, keys, cell phones, and much more.

“The more you learn, the more you know, and I know that with this unit, you can be sure your items are completely sanitized”, said Gerard Santinelli, CEO & president of Santinelli International. “Don’t be fooled by the cheap imposters that are out there”. This unit is unique in that it uses glass-like rods that allow the UVC light to transfer through to sanitize any item effectively and completely, unlike other units that have metal trays and shelves, which do not allow any touched surface to be sanitized and require multiple cycles to truly sanitize.”

Units are available and can be easily ordered through Sios’ informative and interactive e-Commerce catalog or by calling Sios directly at 855.644.SIOS (7467). To learn more about the FusionUV, Welcome to the world of Sios, where we continue to Simplify Optical.
