Is your biometric reader COVID-19 SAFE?

Steri-C disinfects biometric sensors by destroying viruses and bacteria

Using Germicidal UltraViolet

Germicidal UV (GUV) refers to specific ultraviolet radiant energy used to inactivate bacteria, mould spores, fungi or viruses (collectively referred to as pathogens). Wavelengths in the photobiological ultraviolet spectral band known as the “UV-C,” from 200 to 280 nanometres (nm), have been certified to be the most effective for disinfection.

When viruses are exposed to UVC, its effects on the molecular structures destroys the structural bonds in the DNA , with a resultant rendering of the virus harmless and stopping its spread.

There are many examples worldwide of the use of GUV to disinvect objects and stop the spread of viruses.

Using UV-C to disinfect
disinfecting the sensor of biometric readers

UltraViolet disinfection ensures the safe use of your touch based fingerprint readers

The Steri-C can be mounted above most optical fingerprint sensors, provided the correct installation instructions are followed. In some cases you may require a simple mounting bracket to be fixed against the wall or on top of the sensor.

Once the Steri-C is switched on, it will self-calibrate as part of its boot sequence to ensure the optimum workings of the proximity sensor.

To protect the user, the proximity sensor will switch off the UV-C when a finger approaches the fingerprint sensor.

Maintain your security, comply with Health & Safety requirements


Easily mountable on your existing fingerprint readers. Various mounting brackets may be required.


Fast and effective UV irradiation dose for optimal destruction of all known microorganisms.


Controlled exposure to minimise the potential risk of irritation to the user’s skin.

Controlled Process

No adverse impact on the normal operations or accuracy of the fingerprint reader.
