UV-C LED Light Eradicates 99.99% of Viruses In Seconds Like Covid-19
BC LED SOLUTIONS is committed to finding only the highest quality products to help businesses re-open and or stay open. There is now a considerable amount of evidence that COVID-19 airborne transmission is the primary route of transmission. We need to shift our focus to our indoor air quality instead of just disinfecting surfaces.
Designed For Efficiency
Scientists have known about the disinfection capabilities of ultraviolet (UV) light for decades. Now, it’s considered an important tool in the fight against COVID-19.
A scientist at Columbia University found that in a laboratory setting, UV-C is effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. What is UV-C? How does it work? Is it safe? We’re explaining the answers to those questions and more.
Effectively Eradicate Surface and Airborne Pathogens Using UV-C LED.
UV-C (also called germicidal UV) is part of the ultraviolet spectrum. The intense UV-C LED causes photochemical reactions in the RNA and DNA resulting in the deactivation of microbial life including bacteria and viruses.
UV-C LED utilizes specific wavelengths of the ultraviolet spectrum, typically between 100 to 280 nanometers below that of UV-A and UV-B. UV-C LED provides significant radiant energy to break the carbon bonds of viruses, incapacitating their RNA and DNA strands so that they can no longer replicate and become eradicated.
UV-C Dosimeters For Optimal Placement
Verifying the correct location and effectiveness of germicidal UV units is simple. While there are advanced measuring devices such as radiometers out there, the simplest way to check the UV-C LED unit is to use a single use dosimeter.
Dosimeters are cards or stickers that can be placed anywhere that have a special UV sensitive ink. Dosimeters are used during the initial setup to ensure the correct run time and location are appropriate. It should be noted that dosimeters are intended for use with 200 to 280 nanometer wave lengths and do not provide accurate measurements outside of that range.
