The effect of UV sterilize

UV sterilize is a powerful disinfection tool against many viruses harmful bacteria mold and spores .it is one of the most effective and safest and it does not require any contact with the surface or object ,but how does UV light eliminate microbes and how does it compare to using traditional liquid based cleaning or sanitation specifically, the UVC range which covers wavelengths ranging from between 200 nanometers and 280 ,nanometers is capable of eliminating viruses bacteria mold and spores including the  severe acute respiratory syndrome Middle East respiratory syndrome ecoli yeast and more this solution is being used in large scale wastewater treatment. medical facilities laboratories manufacturing ,food processing and hospitals how does it work during the disinfection process.

 

UVC LED targets the DNA of the microbe exposure to the light causes thymine dimers to form in the DNA ,as more thymine dimers are formed damage starts to accumulate inside the DNA bumps also appear in the DNA as a result of the dimers, these cellular mutations negatively affect growth and the risk of non repair increases, eventually the damage becomes too extensive and the cell dies DNA replication is stopped, which reduces infection or the spread rate of the virus UVC light and viruses uv-light has been tested as an effective solution against a myriad of viruses.

According to an article published in Journal of biological methods SARS caused by the corona virus is eliminated through exposure to UV light in the 254 nanometer range in the study published.

In the u.s. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine UVC light deactivated Emmy RS CoV within five to ten minutes of exposure ,when it comes to the latest outbreak of CoV I D, my team UV light has been confirmed to be effective in eliminating .the virus by wanly on an environmental health scientist at Emory University and dr. lena sirak an associate professor at University College of London UVC treatment is already proven to work on previous, strains of the corona virus therefore it makes sense for the light to be used to give CoV ID 19 best practices unlike liquid cleaning agents no contact with the surface or device is required when sanitizing with UVC light there is no downtime after sterilization the area or equipment can be used immediately.
