  • Effectiveness of 222nm Ultraviolet Light on Disinfecting SARS-CoV-2 Surface Contamination

    A peer-reviewed study published in the American Journal of Infection Control examined the effectiveness of Far-UV 222 nm against the SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) on surfaces. In this study, a modest Far-UV 222 nm dose of 3 mJ/cm2 resulted in a 99.7% reduction in “viable” SARS-CoV-2...

  • What is UV and UV-C technology

    What is UV? It is often referred to as ultraviolet ‘light,’ but UV is a type of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths shorter than visible light and longer than X-rays.UV radiation falls into three categories depending on its wavelength: UVA, UVB and UVC. The shorter the wavelength, the mor...

  • Kobe University and Ushio Prove 222 nm Far UV-C Light Reduces Bacterial Counts and Causes No Damage on Human Skin

    ​Ultraviolet radiation C (UVC) is defined as 100 – 280 nm wavelengths UV. UVC from solar UV cannot reach the surface of the earth, because this range of UV is absorbed by the ozone layer. Conventional germicidal UVC light (254nm wavelength) can be used to disinfect unoccupied spaces such as...
