For decades, scientists have known about the disinfection ability of ultraviolet wavelengths, specifically germicidal UV (also known as UV-C).
The COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing, and it’s causing priorities to shift for a lot of us. Protecting patients, customers, workers, and our families is more important than ever before. Disinfecting frequently used surfaces is extremely important, and UV light is very effective at inactivating pathogens like viruses and bacteria.
Germicidal UV products tout pathogen kill rates higher than a 99.9% rate. Because of their effectiveness, they’re incredibly useful right now for hospitals, medical labs, senior care centers, fire and police stations, airports, and transit stations but can also be used in schools, government buildings, office buildings, and hotels.
