SteriPEN water purifiers use ultraviolet light to destroy a wide variety of bacteria, viruses and protozoan cysts, such as Giardia, e-coli, shingella, legionella, and many others. Hospitals and water treatment plants have been using this technique of UV light to purify water for over a decade. SteriPEN harnessed this technology and sized it down to a portable water filter for personal use.
