SELF SANITIZING SINGULAR TOOTHBRUSH.
The Germtron™ toothbrush employs a UV source in the cap which irradiates the bristles directly. It is powered by a rechargeable battery sealed in the cap. Irradiation is initiated by sliding the cap onto the toothbrush head and is controlled by a timer embedded in the cap. This toothbrush is being developed with a UV LED emitter and calibrated to target oral Strep (Streptococcus) bacteria.
