Disinfection with UV-C light
The specific wavelength of UV-C light is in the range of 200-280 nanometers. These wavelengths are able to damage the DNA and RNA of microorganisms, stopping their reproduction and effectively inactivating them.
UV-C light can be applied to surfaces, air and even water.
However, it is important to note that the effectiveness of UV-C light is highly dependent on light intensity, exposure time, and the distance between the light and the target. Special optics are used to optimize this.
Ultraviolet light is very effective, it kills microorganisms in seconds, is chemical free and leaves no residue on surfaces.
However, UV-C light can also be harmful to humans, especially when skin or eyes are directly exposed to it. It is therefore important to take protective measures when handling UV-C light to prevent direct contact.
