A study carried out by the Tübingen University Hospital in Germany confirms that the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the causative agent of the COVID pandemic, can be neutralized by ultraviolet radiation. The device used for disinfection using UV radiation is also called a germicidal emitter. The study is unique in that it was not tested with just similar viruses, but with a real pathogen.
Result: up to 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2 viruses have been eliminated!
Ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 200 to 300 nm cleaves the DNA of viruses and other microorganisms and thus has a strong disinfecting effect.
In order to effectively combat the COVID pandemic and ensure a long-term virus-free environment, various technological solutions are currently being developed around the world. One of the possible solutions is the use of ultraviolet radiation. It is UVC radiation that affects the genetic structure of all types of microorganisms and damages them. Then the pathogen is no longer infectious. Not every microorganism reacts equally to UVC radiation. The time and intensity of exposure to UVC radiation is decisive for the result.
Therefore, when developing new technologies against SARS-Cov-2, it is very important to carefully demonstrate that the newly developed products can effectively kill the virus. In order to ensure this, the laboratory of prof. Dr. Schindler, head of the molecular virology research section at the University Hospital in Tübingen, Germany, tested UVC radiation directly on the active Sars-Cov-2 virus. UVC devices showed excellent results – the pathogen was eliminated quickly and efficiently. Complete disposal was also achieved using mobile devices. This shows that UVC light is ideal for reliable surface disinfection.
Such direct UVC lamps are ideal for disinfection and represent an effective weapon against viruses on surfaces. The use of highly efficient UVC light, easy handling and reliable disinfection of surfaces and objects make them ideal for use in retirement homes, hospitals, public transport, offices and waiting rooms.
STERILLIGHT Air germicidal radiator
In the case of indirect radiation, the UVC lamp is placed inside the device in a closed chamber. The polluted air is sucked into the chamber by means of a fan, where the viruses are effectively eliminated by radiation. Clean sterilized air is exhaled back into the room. The advantage of indirect radiation is that the device does not emit any dangerous radiation or gases, so they can be used even in the presence of people!
Our STERILLIGHT Air germicidal radiator is easy to use, can be hung on the ceiling or wall, placed on a stand on the floor or on furniture. In addition to medical facilities, they will also find excellent use in school classrooms, offices, shopping malls and shops, restaurants, hotels and other areas, but also in your home.
In our offer you will find 3 types of air sterilizers, ie indirect germicidal radiators in conjunction with a fan:
STERILLIGHT Air 15W – suitable for rooms up to 25m²
STERILLIGHT Air 30W – suitable for rooms up to 50m²
