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 the 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 mould, bacteria, and viruses. The technology is also referred to as UV Germicidal Irradiation or UVGI.
