PetAirapy, LLC, announced that Wladyslaw Kowalski, Ph.D., has joined the company as principal consulting scientist specifically related to the area of animal care. As the manufacturer of non-toxic ultraviolet germicidal (UVGI or UV) sanitizing technology for the animal care industry, PetAirapy works with Dr. Kowalski to identify new, existing and emerging pathogens and how to quickly and safely eliminate them from the air and surfaces in animal care facilities and residences.

Dr. Kowalski has worked as a UV researcher at Penn State, served as president of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), and is currently rendered an expert by NASA on the subject matter of UV. He is an expert recommended by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Kowalski is also the author of the acclaimed “Hospital Airborne Infection Control” and “Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation Handbook: UVGI for Air and Surface Disinfection”.

“PetAirapy is dedicated to helping safely prevent and eliminate airborne pathogens and allergens in animal care facilities such as veterinarian clinics, animal shelters, pet boarding facilities, and dog daycares, as well as homes, with science-backed UV sanitizing technology” said Annette Uda, PetAirapy’s founder. “Working with Dr. Kowalski helps ensure we produce the most effective and non-toxic systems possible to keep animals – and the people who care for them – healthy and protected.”

Founded in 2008, this year PetAirapy celebrates its 10th anniversary serving the animal care industry. PetAirapy’s UV sanitizing technology for air and surfaces, designed to prevent and eliminate airborne pathogens, such as canine influenza (dog flu), canine parvovirus, canine distemper, canine (kennel) cough, as well as allergens, is found in animal care facilities across the U.S. and internationally, as well as in hundreds of homes.
