Why UV-C?

UV-C radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water, and surfaces that can help mitigate the risk of acquiring an infection and has been used extensively for more than 40 years. All bacteria and viruses tested to date (many hundreds over the years, including various coronaviruses) respond to UV-C disinfection.


It not only kills the COVID-19 virus, but it also works against all known viruses, bacteria, and fungal spores.

How does it work?

UV radiation between 200 and 280 nm is the germicidal range of UV radiation where it can destroy a virus by killing its RNA & DNA (5). UV light produces electromagnetic energy that can destroy the ability of microorganisms to reproduce and cause the inactivation of microbes by causing mutations and/or cell death.
