BIOVITAE® is a patented technology that, thanks to the emission of specific frequencies of the visible spectrum, sanitizes the environment and the surfaces from germs and controls bacterial proliferation, acting in synergy with the natural resilience of our immune system

The emission of the patented light frequencies of BIOVITAE® stimulates the porphyrins of the bacteria by activating an uncontrollable METABOLIC REACTION. The endogenous porphyrins are excited and interact with oxygen, producing reactive oxygen species (ROS) that cause oxidative damage to the cell membrane of the microbes and, therefore, their destruction by photodynamic inactivation. 

BIOVITAE® safely prevents the development of infectious outbreaks.

BIOVITAE ® is a technology owned by Nextsense in Roma, Italy. The technology was invented by Rosario Valles and Carmelo R. Cartiere.

BIOVITAE ® a microbicidal LED Lighting Technology which can sanitize your environment. This Technology is without UV. 

BIOVITAE® is effective on virus, GRAM+ and GRAM- bacteria, fungi, spores, and moulds. BIOVITAE ® was tested and validated efficient against SARS-CoV 2 by European military Laboratories and the CEA in France. (scientific reports below)

In July 2020, BIOVITAE ® was awarded as one of the top 3 global health innovation by one of the UNAIDS program named Health Innovation Exchange.

Biovitae Efficacy against SARS-CoV-2. Tests done 3 European military laboratories (Italy, Germany and Sweden) and the CEA in France.

Biovitae's efficacy against Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 demonstrated through independent tests conducted by the following European military laboratories:

• Scientific Department of the Celio Military Hospital, Rome in Italy (Italian Military laboratory). 

• Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology, Section Viral and Intracellular Pathogens, Munich in Germany (German Military laboratory). 

• Department of CBRN protection and security, Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI), Umeå in Sweden (Swedish Military laboratory).

 Those tests were published through a peer-reviewed manuscript named "Rapid inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 with LED irradiation of visible spectrum wavelengths" on the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology in November 2021.

The main cause of bacteria / virus resistance is BIOFILM in which bacteria colonies can grow, exchange information and become resistant.

The biofilm protects bacteria from disinfectants and antibiotics and is the most impermeable liquid substance (slime) ever discovered. Only light can penetrate it.

The BIOVITAE ® patented frequencies can penetrate BIOFILM.

Biofilm becomes ineffective under BIOVITAE ® frequencies.   

BIOVITAE® is not harmful to people or animals under prolonged and continuous use. This is certified through its compliance with IEC 62471 RG 0 directive.

(Patents n. WO2017179082 and n. WO2018020527)

BIOVITAE ® is compatible with all types of materials and surfaces (without UV).

BIOVITAE ® is a class A+ lighting device

BIOVITAE® reduces the release in the atmosphere of CO2 as low as 33 kg/year, compared to a CFL bulb (62 kg/year), and to a standard LED bulb (41 kg/year).

What is the difference in between BIOVITAE® and UV ?


IMPORTANT : BIOVITAE® is a microbicidal LED technology which can be integrated into any luminaire (such as bulb/panel/downlight etc) or into electronics/consumer goods

The technology can be transferred to your certified suppliers. (Exemple for the railway or aircraft industries).


BIOVITAE® is a "flicker free" device: it avoids the risks that conventional LED bulbs can pose to people suffering from neurological disorders. BIOVITAE® is compliant with the ROHS2 requirements, introduced by Directive 2011/65/CE. The directive provides for the reduction of the use of lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr6 +), polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in the production of some of the electrical and electronic equipment sold in the European Union, staying below the required limits by not less than ten folds.
