Is UV-C capable of inactivating SARS-COV-2?
Research suggests that UV-C radiation is effective in inactivating SARS-COV-2 . A multitude of various international workgroups have started conducting research on the effects of UV-C to SARS-COV-2. One of the key issues is determining explicitly the required dosage of UV-C to inactivate the virus. Current studies have mostly been performed on the effect of UV-C disinfecting surfaces, but as it is understood, the most common way for a person to get infected is through airborne particles released from an infected person's respiratory system.
Our company is holding a keen eye on the results of these various research groups and is actively communicating with institutions leading these efforts.
We are also looking into conceptual designs of a variety of applications which assist disinfecting air, surfaces, et cetera from the virus (and potentially other pathogens). We believe that utilizing LEDs instead of traditional mercury-vapor lamps will provide discreet long-term benefits due to the power consumption effectiveness, prolonged lifetime and a lesser footprint to the environment.
