"AMROTEC Is Solving the Need for Bacteria Free US Monies in Circulation"
HONOLULU–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AMROTEC®, a privately held company, announced that it has received US Patent # 11,321,988 related to currency bill processing devices for counting, denominating, and sorting currency bills and subsequently disinfecting currency bills with UV-C rays. AMROTEC®’s devices, at a speed of 800 bills per minute, deactivate up to about 80% of bacteria found on the surface of bills, providing cleaner bills after being counted and processed.
UPDATE: ⬛ Latest (March, 2023) laboratory test result shows AMROTEC’s Currency Discriminators disinfect passing banknotes at a rate about 90% ~ 94% Anti-bacterial efficacy (Depending on Model type).
Contaminated currency bills continue being processed using currency processing equipment and circulate without being disinfected in any way, even partially. Contaminated monies continue to move through various channels, end up in retail and bank teller cash drawers, in ATMs or in Teller Cash Recyclers and then eventually in the hands of the public creating health hazards without anyone noticing.

AMROTEC® Currency Discriminators with Germicidal Disinfection System (up to 94% Anti-Bacterial Efficacy rate)
AMROTEC® releases Currency Discriminators (MIB-11V and MIB-9 UVC model) in March 2023 equipped with Germicidal UV-C LEDs having wavelength of about 254nm and able to disinfect bacteria, that are inhabited on the surface of banknotes, in the process while currency discriminators perform their original discriminating / denominating / sorting functionality. These “UVC” models are equipped with Multi-Strips of great number of Germicidal UV-C LEDs installed at the end of conveyor mechanism where banknotes pass through at a high-speed. AMROTEC®’s Patented (US Patent 11,321,988) UV-C Disinfect System automatically activates and illuminates UV-C LEDs when machine starts processing Banknotes, thus UV-Cs are not always turned on – increase its self-life and safer to use. As banknotes pass by under the UV-C LEDs, banknotes get irradiated by UV-C Rays and get disinfected instantly with up to 94% Anti-bacterial Efficacy rate in killing bacteria (depending on models and types of bacteria) according to March 2023 laboratory test performed by AMROTEC at a reputable laboratory in Texas. Although MIB-11V and MIB-9 UVC model can denominate and discriminate banknotes up to 1200 Notes per Min, UVC models are most effective in disinfecting bacteria at a speed of 800 notes per minute.
