about us

It Started with a Simple Mission

Our lead doctor, Dr. Richard Sibthorpe, has been using Ultraviolet C (UVC) light within his medical practices for years. The main function of UVC is to decontaminate and sanitize medical offices, and it has been commonly used throughout the industry over the past four decades. As the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Dr. Sibthorpe assembled a team to conduct further research on UVC and whether or not it could be used to destroy the virus within air and on surfaces. With overwhelming evidence proving its efficacy, our team was inspired to use this technology to help organizations safely reopen.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will clients know the surface is clean?
Part of our mission is to educate organizations and consumers on the importance of sanitation, the technology being used to sanitize, and the measures organizations have taken to ensure the safety of their patrons and employees. We make this information easily accessible for anyone through QR codes placed on each sanitation device, website postings, and regular email communication with our clients.
What are the benefits for the consumers?
The main benefit of using Sani Technology is having a cleaner, healthier work environment. Our passive sanitation devices use UV-C, Photocatalytic Oxidization, and Bipolar Ionization technology to purify the air at a 99.97% effectivity. Our full-service model also allows organizations to implement this technology quickly and effortlessly, giving them one less thing to worry about during a time of such uncertainty. 
Is UVC technology new? 
This technology has been used for decades to disinfect surfaces and air within medical practices. Studies and research has shown UV light has an effective sanitation and decontamination method for the past 100 years.
What do you test for in your audits?
The amount and size of air particulate matter in the air Surface bacteria test, examining the cleanliness of surfaces, pairing that with the said sanitization methods Looking at the cleaning crew’s practicesAnalyzing the implementation and enforcement of protocols.
What’s the story behind your company?
Our lead doctor throughout his career used the same methods within his medical practices. During the Covid-19 outbreak he wanted to use his time, team, and resources towards helping organizations reopen, stay open, and avoid Covid-19 outbreaks.
How does this compare with our current cleaning routines?
Eco-friendly, more efficient, and automated. No liquid chemicals are involved in this sanitization method, which can lead to damaging physical properties.
How does this work with our current cleaning solutions that our janitors use?
Automated systems that stay running 24/7 allow for sanitization to continue even as physical humans aren’t scrubbing down surfaces.
Is this more effective than standard cleaning solutions?
It is another layer of protection, it works hand in hand with current cleaning practices. These methods are automated so continue cleaning throughout the day and night.
Have you tested these solutions?
Yes, through various tests we’ve been able to ensure a difference in air and surface quality with the solutions we implement.Our solutions have been featured in studies conducted by Texas Tech University and Texas A&M. Solutions we use are currently being used in Whole Foods, Del Monte.
What kind of organizations are using this technology currently? 
Using Bi-polar ionization within terminals at Los Angeles International Airport, Chicago/O'Hare, New York's LaGuardia, Minneapolis, San Francisco International Airport, Vancouver, Fort Lauderdale, Charlotte, and Anchorage.UV light exposure used within UK Underground, NYC Subways, and Marriott Hotels.
You say this technology has been used in hospitals for decades, how were you able to make it available to everyday organizations?
Through our research, relationships, and network, we’ve been able to work with manufactures to make these products more affordable.We have also worked with manufacturers that typically use this technology for industrial use, tweak the product specifications so it can work for us.
What other technologies do you use and how do they work? (Bi-polar ionization, antimicrobial film, & photocatalytic oxidation) 
Anti-microbial tape; a layer of modified film inhibits bacteria growth upon its surfacesBi-polar ionization; emits charged particles that attach to and deactivate substances like bacteria, allergens, molds, and viruses. Can remove 99.9% of microbes within minutesPhotocatalytic oxidation; combines UVC irradiation with a substance titanium which results in a and deactivates harmful airborne microbes. This technology destroys particles as small as  .001 microns (nanometer) compared to HEPA filters which can only filter particles as small as .3 microns.
