TROY - A start-up in Troy claims to have technology that can help kill bacteria and other organisms that make us sick.
Vital VIO has designed LED lights that scatter disinfectants.
They attack bacteria without hurting humans.
“This isn't something like you wipe a surface with clorox bleach or you pulse a room with uv light. What we're really able to offer is disinfection whenever lighting is on,” said James Peterson, the company’s co-founder.
Company officials say the lighting is effective against mold, bacteria, yeast and fungi.
