What is UV‑C?
Ultraviolet-C is a type of ultraviolet light that has wavelengths between 200 and 280 nanometers (nm). Light within those wavelengths can be used for UV‑C disinfection — it will kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
UV‑C light can disarm a broad spectrum of pathogenic bacteria and viruses, including Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli and Clostridium difficile. These microorganisms are unable to develop UV‑C resistance. UV‑C sanitization is the only way to completely destroy antibiotic-resistant pathogens.
How it Works
A trained operator in PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) selects a package for sterilization and places it securely in the box.
Based on the package's distance from the UV‑C lamp, the operator will determine the time needed for disinfection — between 10 and 90 seconds.
UV‑C light penetrates any potential pathogens' cells and disrupts its DNA, immediately killing it.
When the cycle is complete, the operator removes the sterilized package, which is now safe to be delivered to your tenants.
