– What is UV-C –
Shorter the UV wavelength the better
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum that is in the region between visible light and X-Rays. Most natural Ultraviolet light is generated by the sun with only 3%- 4% penetrating the earth’s atmosphere to reach the ground. The UV light spectrum is separated into three sections, UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. Of the Ultraviolet light that reaches the earth, 95% is UV-A and 5% is UV-B. No measurable UV-C from the sun reaches the earth’s surface. Because of the spectral sensitivity of DNA and RNA, only the UV-C region demonstrates significant germicidal properties to disinfect pathogens.
– how UV-C kills pathogens –
Destroying Pathogens at their core
DNA & RNA is the genetic material that makes up all living organisms, controlling their function, development, growth and reproduction. UV-C light produces electromagnetic energy that destroys the ability of microorganisms to reproduce. This creates chemical reactions in the nucleic acids. The UV-C light triggers formation of specific thymine or cytosine dimers in DNA and uracil dimers in RNA, which causes inactivation of the pathogen. This causes mutations which kill the cells. This subsequently makes pathogen no longer infectious.
