What is VQe®?

VQe® is our proprietary safe and natural Healthy Radiant Energy light. Vitabeam® has designed and engineered a custom, proven set of formulas to solve a wide range of health and food safety problems that are caused by harmful pathogens. These formulas are made up of proprietary combinations of radiant energy that resemble the sun’s light at specific wavelengths. In scientific terms it is expressed by the symbol Qe (radiant energy). VQe® is natural and refers to our specific wavelengths in action.

Who is the inventor of Vitabeam Light with VQe™?

Our scientific discoveries have been developed by Vitabeam® and our founder and scientist-inventor, Vladimir Vasilenko, Ph.D.

Dr. Vasilenko and our Vitabeam VQe® science employ proprietary wavelengths of sunlight that are safe.

Meet Dr. Vladimir Vasilenko.

Dr. Vasilenko received a Master of Science degree in 1987 in plant physiology and biochemistry from the Department of Biology and Soil Science at St. Petersburg State University. His Ph. D. in plant physiology from Lomonosov Moscow State University and awarded in 1992 concerned plant growth regulation by light and growth substances. Vladimir gained research experience at the Russian Academy of Sciences, within the Institute of Plant Physiology and the General Physics Institute’s Department of Ecological and Medical Problems. He discovered principles of action of light upon living organisms while working at the laboratory of Nobel Prize Laureate Alexander M. Prokhorov (1990-1998). As a research fellow, Vladimir supported the biological side of Prokhorov’s research initiatives related to the application of lasers in environmental technologies and plant agriculture. During this time, Dr. Prokhorov wrote the following about Dr. Vasilenko’s research efforts: “The topic of his work – “Problem of interaction of light and chemical growth regulators within the plant”-- has very promising data for biophysics, agrochemistry and plant biology. It’s well known that mankind cannot do without artificial regulation of the growth and development of agricultural plants. But since many synthetic regulators are toxic the investigators are in permanent search for the more safe substances and methods. One of them is the joint action of light and chemical regulation, which was advanced and elaborated by Dr. Vasilenko, provides promising results.”

In 2004, Dr. Vasilenko participated in the First World Conference on Organic Seed; the conference was held in Rome, Italy and sponsored by the Food Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. The topic of his presentation concerned the application of light and natural compositions as part of a new seed treatment technology.

Vladimir’s research was furthered at the following universities:

  • University of Leicester (England), Department of Botany
  • Centre de Cadarache (France), Department of Ecology
  • Cornell University (United States), New York State Agricultural Experiment Station
  • University of Guelph (Canada), Department of Environmental Biology
  • Wageningen University (Netherlands), Wageningen UR

Involvement with symposia and conferences include the following:

  • NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (United States)
  • Cornell University (United States)
  • University of Freiburg (Germany)
  • First World Conference on Organic Seed (Italy)
  • Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) (Switzerland)
  • Wageningen University (Netherlands)

Dr. Vasilenko and his Vitabeam® VQe® science employ proprietary wavelengths of light that are beneficial and safe. Based on decades of solid scientific research and utilizing proven technologies, the unique Vitabeam spectrum combinations are patented and patent pending. To this end, we have defined them as the Vitabeam healthy, radiant energy section of the solar spectrum. We have branded and trademarked them as VQe® and VQe® Active, a wide range of formulas that resemble specific wavelengths of the sun’s light.

Is Vitabeam VQe® light safe?

VQe® lighting and its healthy, radiant energy is safe for plants, animals and humans. All Vitabeam® and VQe® spectrum lighting are natural component parts of sunlight. Vitabeam employs only safe sunlight components in our proprietary technologies. VQe does not cause molecular ionization (the breaking apart of cellular molecules into ions) due to low energy of photons.

Vitabeam energy or VQe® are part of the range of electromagnetic rays that are (a) important for our well-being and (b) necessary for metabolism and growth of humans, animals and plants. VQe resembles elements of sunlight minus the skin damaging UV rays, which is why NASA currently uses this type of safe energy in space. It is also vibration energy, with which the human body resonates. This is the reason that it can penetrate through the skin. Selected spectrums are so safe they are used to warm premature babies.

In fact, overall independent scientific research has shown a very positive, healing effect on the human organism when broad angle infrared is employed. It is important to note that our founder, Dr. Vladimir Vasilenko, has been a leading advocate and active participant of the independent research events for over 30 years, combining natural biology and physics which has led to the development of our Vitabeam® VQe® as our patented and patent pending proprietary technology.

What are some of the benefits of VQe®?

The following graphic depicts three of the primary benefits of VQe®.

Here are answers to Frequently asked questions

How does VQe™ work?
Vitabeam® destroys pathogens because our healthy, radiant energy (VQe®) causes cell-damage and/or stops important cell processes in bacteria:
    • Pathogenic bacteria: Salmonella, Yersinia, Campylobacter, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus and MRSA, E. Coli O157:H7. and many other bacteria.
    • Spoilage bacteria: Aeromonads, Alcaligenes, Bacillus, Enterobacter, Flavobacterium, Gluconobacter (Acetobacter,, Lactobacillus and Leuconostoc, ), Micrococcus, Pseudomonas and many other bacteria.
VQe® causes cell-damage in many fungi like the following:
    • Mold: Botrytis Cinerea (Grey Mold), Penicillium citrinum (Blue Mold), Aspergillus Niger (Black Mold), Cladosporium cladosporioides and Rhizopus oryzhae;
    • Species of Powdery Mildew: Sphaerotheca fuliginea and Erysiphe cichoracearum
    • Common spoilage yeasts: Saccharomyces, Rhodotorula, Candida, Brettanomyces, Torulopsis, Debaryomyces, Hansenula, Lodderomyces, Pichia, Saccharomyces, Saccharomycopsis, and Zygosaccharomyces.
The high cell death curves resulting from Vitabeam’s VQe® wavelengths can cause alterations in the plasma membranes of prokaryotic pathogens and the mitochondrial membranes (the cell’s “powerhouse”) of eukaryotic pathogens, causing their death. Vitabeam understands how these microbes differ when it comes to (a) what power is needed and (b) what exposure time is necessary to best destroy them.
Is it safe for my staff and customers?
Yes. Vitabeam® Healthy Radiant Energy or VQe® is safe and natural for greater food safety and health security. VQe® lighting and its healthy radiant energy is safe for plants, animals and humans. All Vitabeam and VQe® spectrum lighting are natural component parts of sunlight. Vitabeam employs only safe sunlight components in our proprietary technologies.
How much does it cost to operate?
VQe® causes the rapid destruction of bacteria resident on fresh foods. Product life is increased for the store and the customer at an operating cost of $.055 per linear foot per day including electricity. (Cost of electricity is based on $0.08/kwh.) This calculation includes the cost of the device and installation labor.
How long does it take to install?
With a trained electrical contractor, installing the VQe® device in a four foot display case section should take less than two hours. For example, a 24 foot seafood section should only take one night to install.
If we decide to move forward, how long will it take?
Vitabeam ®is in stock in North America. We will be able to install VQe® devices as soon as your scheduling permits.
