What is UV Light?UV light(ultraviolet rays) is a form of energy that is not visible to the human eye.. The sun is a major source of ultraviolet rays, emitting three types of ultraviolet light: UV-A, UV-B and UV-C light.
UV-A and UV-B light naturally reach the earth's surface and can cause sunburns. However, UV-C light from the sun is stopped at the ozone layer where it is absorbed.
How does UV light Eliminate Bacteria?UV-C breaks the molecular bonds within micro-organismal DNA and destroys them. This disrupts vital cellular functions, effectively killing it.
Where is UV light Used Today?Discovery of the disinfecting properties of UV light date as far back as 1877. Today, it is used in hospitals, food precessing facilities, water treatment plants, laboratories and other places where sanitization and purification is crucial.
What Can UviCube Do?UviCube was found to eliminate 99.9% of harmful bacteria on surfaces exposed to UV light in tests performed by a third-party ISO 17025 accredited test facility based in the United States.
Salmonella Entercia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebesiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, and Escherichia coli were used in conducting the study. Click here to see the test report.
