UV Sterilization

How does the UV stick work?

Safelifz 59S UVC LED Sterilizer Wand X5 uses UV LED technology and ultraviolet light of wavelength range 260 nm-280 nm which is heavily absorbed by the DNA and RNA of bacteria, spores, microorganisms, viruses including coronavirus. The light destroys the nucleic acids in DNA, making it impossible for the pathogens to reproduce, making them ineffective. It works against almost all germs. It consists of 20* UV LED beads which have up to 10,000 hours of a lifetime, making it a long-lasting and eco-friendly disinfection method. Without using any harsh chemicals or water and 100% ozone free disinfection. For safety reasons,...

Can you see germs with a UV light?

The UVA light is also known as blacklight, causes specific materials to “fluoresce” or radiate visible light in total darkness. This means when you ut anything under UVA light, the material will glow. Bodily fluids such as saliva, semen and vaginal fluid will fluoresce and can be detected under blacklight. That is traditionally used in depicting crime scene investigations. Since certain bodily fluids can transmit certain sickness-causing bacteria and viruses, a blacklight can detect potentially threatening bodily fluids. However, the blacklights are not seen as a detecter that specifically illuminates bacteria and viruses – it only illuminates fluorescent bodily fluids...

What are UVC light Safety Precautions?

UVC light used in making germicidal lamps that emit radiation between 100-280 nm. IT is used in various applications where disinfection is a primary concern, including air and water purification, food and beverage protection, and sterilization of medical instruments. Germicidal light destroys the ability of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens to multiply by deactivating their reproductive capabilities. The light is harmful to both skin and eyes and it should be ensured the application is designed in a way that prevents exposure to humans or animals. Acute damage is redness of skin called erythema (similar to sunburn). Chronic effects include accelerated...

What are the Benefits of UVC Sterilization?

UV-C light is 99.9% effective in disinfecting surfaces by destroying the genetic material DNA/ RNA of viruses and microorganisms, rendering them incapable of reproduction. Traditional cleaning methods are specific can still miss harmful germs and only be used on limited surfaces. The top 10 benefits of using a UV light for disinfection is listed below : Contactless Disinfection: You can sanitize any surface without coming into direct contact by illuminating it with a handheld device or static fixture. Faster Disinfection: It disinfects a variety of surfaces in a short amount of time when compared to traditional sources. Disinfection time depends on the...

UVC Light effective in killing Coronavirus?

In the current COVID-19 situation, UV-C light is employed as an effective way of sanitizing large spaces because of its proven record of germicidal action on previous Coronavirus. Hospitals and Industries have used UVC for a long time because of its efficient disinfection properties. Many countries are adopting UVC Lights to disinfect buses and trains in its depots. Companies are ramping up the production of various sanitizing devices to sanitize personal protective equipment and other items which use UVC lights because of their effectiveness in deactivating a wide range of bacteria and viruses. The UV-C wavelength range (200-280nm) has germicidal...
