Our mission


ZAPARAY is a Belgian company focused on UVC LED innovation, resulting in sustainable disinfection solutions.

ZAPARAY’s mission is to provide chemical-free disinfection technology by spearheading the migration from UVC mercury discharge lamps to UVC LED technology. ZAPARAY differentiates itself from the competition by its quality-driven innovation methodology and by applying medical manufacturing standards.


UVC-LED disinfection contributes to better object hygiene upon which biohazard risks like antibiotic-resistant bacteria (incl. MRSA, EHEC, ESBL), food pathogens (Salmonella, Listeria), and recently SARS-CoV-2 are present. In addition to contributing to a cleaner and safer environment, our innovations create significant savings in the consumption of chemicals, water, and energy, as well as in sick leave and healthcare costs.


ZAPARAY’s devices are Made in Belgium. Our products are CE/EN61010/EN61000 certified by an external validation laboratory and are approved as electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use. The RAY-ONE and RAY-TWO disinfection devices have a drawer to load small to midsize objects. The UVC radiation remains fully enclosed within the device, with double safety sensors to interrupt the disinfection cycle in case the drawer is opened.
