Make your life simple with Ultraviolet Germicidal Irrigation.
No more having to use harsh products and gloves to disinfect. No more searching endlessly for appropriate disinfectant products; repetitive cost of disinfectant products or spending 4 to 10 times the original cost for sodium hypochlorite or alcohol for disinfecting SARS CoV viruses/Covid-19 and other surface pathogens.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irrigation (UVGI) helps you to perceive simplicity once again.
UVGI is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UVC).The wavelength of UVC radiation ranges from 210 -328 nm . Its maximum effect occurs at 240–280 nm.
The application of UVGI to disinfection has been an accepted practice since the mid-20th century. Its primarily used in medical environments, for decontamination of pharmaceuticals and in sterile work facilities.
Heimbuch & Harnish (2019) showed complete disinfection of SARS-CoV from Filtering Face Mask Respirators in the presence of saliva and artificial skin oil.
Heimbuch et al. tested the performance of 1 J/cm2 of UVGI against Influenza A (H1N1), Avian influenza A virus (H5N1), Influenza A (H7N9) A/Anhui/1/2013, Influenza A (H7N9) A/Shanghai/1/2013, MERS-CoV, and SARS-CoV and reported virus inactivation from 99.9% to greater than 99.999% .
We estimate that the minimum applied UVC fluence for effective deactivation of SARS-CoV-2 on N95 FFRs would likely be close to 1,000 mJ/cm2, particularly in light of the mask’s porous surface (as compared to smooth surface material), as shown by Heimbuch & Harnish’s 2019 study.
Ultraviolet’s UVC equipment could potentially be used to stop the spread of of all SARS viruses including COVID-19 (SARS-CoV2).
UVC Disinfecting Wand For Purchase: $200.00 Includes Shipping:
The UVC wand has shown to eliminates 99.9% of microorganisms from hard and soft surfaces using non-chemical, non-toxic, non-mercurial UV-C light. Its also capable of killing surface molds, dust, mites, fleas and other parasitic microorganisms.
The Ultra Violet UVC Wand comes with a Child Safety Lock sensor that shuts off automatically if the light is turned upward to prevent accidental exposure to the Eyes.
“Protective Goggles are Included”for the adult user. Correct handling and operation is prudent. ” UVC light can Damage the Nerves in the EYES – as well as Burn the Skin.”
The UVC wand includes a storage bag for carrying or for storage for when not in use. The LEDs are rated for 10,000 hours. The Wand operates for 50 minutes on a full charge via USB. Dimensions: 10″ L x 1 3/4″ W x 1 1/2″.
Different pathogens are susceptible to UVC light at different wavelengths. Full germicidal spectrum is 200-315nm which typically is generated by a mercury-vapor lamp. The UVC For Sale contain No Mercury and is Toxin Free. The Leds don’t necessarily last longer than traditional germicidal lamps in terms of hours used, instead it has better tolerance for short-term operations.
The optimal wavelengths for disinfection are close to 270 nm. Short-wavelength UV (UVC) is considered “germicidal”.
Wavelengths between about 200 nm and 300 nm are strongly absorbed by nucleic acids. The absorbed fluence results in defects including pyrimidine dimers. These dimers prevent viral replication or can prevent the expression of proteins, resulting in the inactivation of the microorganism.
The UVC light wand uses semiconductors to emit light between 255 nm and 280 nm – eliminating 99.9% of viral microorganisms from surfaces and 90% of bacterial and fungal organisms. Its the same technology trusted to disinfect hospital surfaces and used in our clinic at IHM.
The total pathogenic load can be reduced substantially by applying UV to the many surfaces that are readily exposed, as a secondary barrier to cleaning, especially in hurried conditions.
SARS-CoV viruses have a 90% inactivation rate among nearly 130 viruses from hundreds of published studies summarized by Kowalski.
Ultraviolet fluence for 90% inactivation of Coronaviruses is 7-241 J/m2 the mean of which is 67 J/m2, should adequately represent the ultraviolet susceptibility of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus.
1) Increases in effectiveness and UV intensity can be achieved by using reflection. Aluminum has the highest reflectivity rate versus other metals and has been recommended when using UV-C.
2) Pre-treatment with hydrogen peroxide will enhance the “UV effect”.
3) 1 mJ/cm2 = 10 J/m2.
Fluence is obtained by multiplying the units “mW/cm2″by the exposure time in seconds.
4) 1000 microwatt = 1 milliwatt.
UV-C wand Limited Supply Available.
