CleanSlate UV's mission is to eliminate pathogens on mobile devices through the use of effective and easy-to-use UV products. We do this by designing technologies that people will actually use.
CleanSlate's flagship product CleanSlate UV allows staff, patients and visitors to sanitize their personal items (such as phones, tablets and badges) while they wash or sanitize their hands. This helps improve hand hygiene and reduce the risk of hospital acquired infections.
CleanSlate UV's chemical-free sanitizer uses ultra-violet light to kill bacteria and viruses on cell phones and other devices. It takes just 20 seconds, can sanitize multiple phones per cycle, and requires no user training. The company's new software suite can also leverage automatic RFID scanning to provide auditable compliance reports for facility-owned devices.
CleanSlate UV is backed by Prolog Ventures, 43North and others. The company raised $7M in a Series A round on April 15, 2020. This brings CleanSlate's total funding to $8.5M to date.
