The most accurate method to specify germicidal power requires first knowing the specific pathogen to be inactivated and then determining its action spectrum (or the pathogen's unique profile of sensitivity by wavelength to a light source).
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
Germicidal UV systems, which typically cost $1,000 to $1,500 each, are installed in ceiling air diffusers and irradiate from the room's heating, ventilating and air conditioning [HVAC] system, Shagott said.
Examples of some of these include: ammonia-free glass cleaner, germicidal cleaner and disinfecting agents for restrooms, PH neutral cleaner on a floor, detergent agents on carpets, and others.
The device incorporates a proven UV-C germicidal technology that has been used for a number of years in water and air purification systems, and can be used on electronics, walls, carpets desktops, paper and other non-living materials to detoxify the areas in a matter of seconds.
In the past two years, the company has worked with Pennsylvania State University in developing software that uses heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems to utilize a variety of germicidal ultraviolet light strategies.
Mexico's Department of Health has set new standards for equipment and germicidal agents used in the burgeoning water treatment industry.
Though nisin's germicidal prowess was discovered 71 years ago, the means by which the protein kills bacteria has remained a mystery.
The IRiS[TM] 3200m is an automated, mobile UV robot designed to standardize surface disinfection with a real-time, scientifically calculated, assured dosage of germicidal ultraviolet light for the inactivation of dangerous pathogens such as C.
