UV-C lights are proven to kill pathogens. UV-C Light For years scientist have known that the best
defense against microorganisms is the natural sunlight. Not the light we see but the light we never
see, the ultra violet C band. The sun’s UV-C rays are a natural serialization destroying all types of
bacteria, germs, fungi and viruses. The sun’s UV-C rays do not reach us because they cannot
penetrate the earth’s ozone layer. However, scientist have reproduced these UV-C rays in a light
bulb know as UV-C Germicidal Light.
What is UV-C Germicidal Light? UV-C Germicidal Light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, germs,
fungi and viruses. This deactivation destroys the cells ability to reproduce. Specifically, it causes
damage to the nucleic acid of the cell by forming covalent bonds between certain adjacent bases
in the DNA. This formation causes the cell to die when it tries to reproduce. According to the Environmental Protection Agency surfaces we come in contact with daily contain hundreds of thousands of infectious microorganisms, which can only be seen with a microscope. These microorganisms can cause diseases such as MRSA, Ringworm, HIV, Impetigo and Influenza to name a few. The proper dosage of UV-C light will destroy every type of microorganism know to man. What Dosage of UV-C Light is Required to Kill Certain Types of Microorganisms? The energy required to kill microorganisms is a product of the UV-C light’s intensity and exposure time. This energy is measured in micro-watt seconds per square centimeter (μW S/cm2).
The Sterilaser™ UVC Germicidal Light disinfectant machines deliver a massive dosage of UVC DNA breaking power. The destruction of germs by the Sterilaser™ is accomplished quickly and effectively. The UV-C rays strike the microorganisms whether they are bacteria, virus, fungi or any other germ and destroys it’s DNA. Does It Work? Yes, thousands of references to the effectiveness of UV-C light can be found in literature and in actual applications. One is the cooperative Extended Abstract from NIOSH and the University of Cincinnati where UV-C light was tested against the many types of bacteria. Another is the Tulsa University study conducted at the Oklahoma Public Service Company of where a 99.7% reduction of surface germs was achieved. UV-C technology is even used on the food we eat and the water we drink. Bottom line - it works!
