Ultra Violet Germ Irradiation (UVGI)

Ultra Violet Germ Irradiation ( UVGI ) is an established means of disinfection and has been used to prevent the spread of viral diseases for nearly 100 years.

Low pressure mercury ( Hg) or LED UV lamps commonly used in UVGI applications emit shortwave UV-C at the wavelength of 250 – 280 nm, at 253-256 nm this wavelength interrupts DNA and RNA. UVC radiation inactivates microbes by damaging their deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA).

The principal mode of inactivation occurs when the absorption of a photon forms pyrimidine dimers between adjacent thymine bases and renders the microbe incapable of replicating.

UVGI can be used to disinfect air, water and surfaces.

Solutions for dental practices

UVGI disinfection is shown to be effective against corona viruses in air. Our UV lights neutralise 99% of all viruses within the operating range – within minutes and don’t produce any harmful ozone.
