Developer of an ultraviolet light-emitting diode (LED) water-purification system designed to offer safe and hygienic drinking water. The company's ultraviolet light-emitting diode (LED) water-purification system utilizes strong short-wavelength (250-280 nm) radiation to inactivate microorganisms by destroying the nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions, enabling users to consume hygienic water.
