It’s important to note these products contain germicidal UV, which can be harmful to humans if used incorrectly, UV-C radiation can penetrate the skin and eyes.
As we try to rebound from the coronavirus pandemic, many scientists are recommending a decades-old technology that sterilizes ….
Ultra-Violet (UV) light is invisible to the human eye and is divided into UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. UV-C is found within 100-280 nm range. In the graph can be seen that germicidal action …
UV-C Disinfection is Not New
In 1903 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for using UV light to fight the spread of tuberculosis.
After confirming UV lighting’s ability to kill pathogens, the next step was to find a way to replicate the UV wavelengths that would result in the disinfection of surfaces, air, and water. The first UV quartz lamp was wavelengths of ultraviolet light (UV-C; 100nm to 280nm) that have disinfection properties.
UV-C light inactivates airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria, and viruses. The technology is also referred to as UV Germicidal Irradiation or UVGI.
We have struggled in the past to see this highly effective, very safe technology fully implemented for airborne infections,” said Dr. Edward A. Nardell, a professor of global health and social medicine at Harvard Medical School. “We’ve done the studies. We know it works.
Why choose UV-C Solutions co
Used correctly, UVC can be a highly effective preventative measure, but the right training and knowledge are vital. In the current market, there are some major considerations to take into account when it comes to integrating UVC into commercial fit-outs and relying on it for widespread sanitation.
Ultraviolet radiation inactivates viruses by breaking down their DNA and killing the cells, stopping them from replicating.
This technology has been used for decades to disinfect water, air, and contaminated surfaces in specific settings, such as hospital operating rooms and water treatment plants.
UV-C is used for air disinfection in virtually every application, because there are always situations where microorganisms in the air can cause a …
In high contact areas such as schools, retail outlets, industry, offices and public transportation, UV-C can be used for a deep disinfection….
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
My 45 years of experience as an epidemiologist has left me aghast at the widespread failure to properly sterilize indoor spaces. Well-meaning business owners who want to protect staff and customers are repeatedly failed by companies that send out representatives who have no formal education or training in the proper protocols. This is unacceptable. We need to fight this pandemic with appropriate planning and actionable steps towards prevention and safety…… Read All
