UV-C Lighting Has Been Demonstrated to Effectively Disinfect and Eliminate Harmful Microorganisms

As outlined below, the results of using Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) warrant the consideration by healthcare facilities to use this technology to combat infectious diseases. These results also validate the value proposition of UV-C lighting in various sectors, such as the healthcare, hospitality, and food industries as we strive to create safer and cleaner spaces.

  1. The CDC’s article, “Effectiveness of (UVGI) in Reducing Resident Colonization and Environmental Contamination with Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a Long-Term Care Facility“, UV-C lighting significantly reduced the contamination levels of MRSA in patient rooms and common areas of long-term care facilities.
  2. The NIH’s article, “Inactivation of the Ebola Virus with a Surfactant-Dispersed Subphthalocyanine Fluor in the Presence of Ultraviolet-A Light” demonstrates that the use of specific wavelengths of UV-C light inactivated the Ebola virus.
