Our Technology

Discover our VQe technology, a unique cocktail of light wavelengths that simultaneously kill pathogens and stimulate plant growth.

The future is brighter with vitabeam

Ensure you get the most from your produce

Vitabeam-Bar

Vitabeam’s technology uses VQe (Vitabeam Quantum energy) – a special “cocktail” of different wavelengths of light, the spectrum of which is broader than that found in any other grow lights. 

The intensities of these wavelengths are all safe for human exposure and VQe does not contain UV. Therefore, humans can be exposed to it, in environments such as greenhouses where growers work, and in retail supermarkets where consumers and staff will be around it.

Greenhouse Vitabeam

The principle piece of equipment we have developed that uses VQe only is the Vitabeam VQe MaxStrip. These slim, lightweight, high-quality light bars can be fitted into greenhouses and food displays and cabinets easily and quickly.

Our other piece of equipment is the Vitabeam Steril Max. This combines VQe with UV to produce a top-quality piece of technology that has many potential uses. The combination of VQe and UV means it is highly effective at sterilising food, packaging, equipment and more.

Our Discovery

VQe – Vitabeam Quantum energy

Realising the potential of VQe was a huge step in the development of our company. We discovered a unique cocktail of light wavelengths that simultaneously kills pathogens and stimulates plant growth – a disruptive movement in the Grow Light Industry.

With a recent 5x power output upgrade, the VQe MaxStrip is a high quality, light-weight and energy efficient LED, targeted at horticulture growers and retail for a pathogen-free environment, accelerated growth, improved health and yield of plants and longer shelf-life.

VQe MaxStrip

Our Most Powerful Product.

VQe Steril Max

Kills Pathogens Fast | Extends Shelf-Life | Ensures Food Safety

For a more intense and higher bacterial log kill, the Steril Max is our most powerful product, destroying bacteria and other pathogens by combining VQe and UV. Our Steril Max is displayed in a tunnel, prioritising the safety of humans.

Vitabeam Steril Max

Targeting food processing (pre-packaging) and other high pathogen-sensitivity environments which are at risk from mould and bacteria (e.g. schools, daycares, fitness centers), the Steril Max will fit within any existing sterilisation regime, with GPS, Robotic, AI and IOT options to spec. Synergistic by design, it employs our proprietary VQe technology and UV uniquely.
