What is UVC?
Here's a brief overview of UV and what UVC is
UV refers to ultraviolet light produced by the sun. There are three different types of UV light - UVA, UVB and
UVC refers the UV light with the wavelength between 200-290 nanometers (nm). It is the highest energy level of UV and is almost entirely filtered out by the atmosphere before reaching the Earth's surface.
UVC LED is the reproduction of UVC light by creating a UV wavelength between 200-280nm. All 59S products emit wavelengths between 260-280nm. Germicidal effectiveness peaks peaks at 265nm.
How does UVC work?
Did you know:
UVC technology has been used in medical and commercial disinfection techniques for many years. UVC technology uses no harmful chemicals or ozone, making it the most effective and safe sterilisation method to date.
UVC eliminates up to 99.99% of germs and bacteria by destroying their DNA & RNA strands. UVC rays penetrate cells and damage the nucleic acid, therefore making them unable to reproduce or microbiologically inactive.
Fast and effective in destroying 99.99% of bacteria and viruses
As can be seen in the above video, you can see that exposure to UVC on even large bacterium can cause them to either entirely breakdown, or render them inactive. According to the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) and the international Centre for Disease Control (CDC) UVC sterilisation is highly effective at combating pathogens that are common culprits in healthcare- associated infections (see the Professionals link to read the full study).
Protecting your family from nasty pathogens
Did you know:
Clinical studies have been performed in hospitals to prove that UVC disinfection is effective at reducing infections. The systems used in hospitals emit a UV wavelength of between 200-280nm - making them germicidal. This means they are capable of inactivating microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses and protozoa.

All 59S UVC products are tested and proven to emit wavelengths between 260-280nm within this proven germicidal range.
