FAR UVC FLUORESCENT CAN BE USED AS A STERILIZER & DISINFECTANT FOR COVID-19 & OTHER RELATED VIRUSES SUCH AS INFLUENZA
Its working principle is to destroy the molecular structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid) of microbial cells, cause growth cells and / or regenerative cells to die, and achieve the effect of sterilization and disinfection. In particular, ultraviolet rays in the 240nm-280m band are the most effective disinfection and disinfection bands. All coronaviruses are single-stranded positive-strand RNA viruses. Ultraviolet light is usually divided into three bands: A-band UVA (315nm-400nm); B-band UVB (280nm-315nm); C-band UVC (200nm-280nm). Among them, the UVC band is also known as the deep ultraviolet band. Its shortest wavelength and highest energy can destroy the molecular structure of cells in a short time. However, since ozone in our earth's atmosphere can filter and absorb most of this band of ultraviolet light, we need additional Artificial means use UVC to play its role. The virus does not have a nucleus, it just encloses a layer of protein that relies on DNA or RNA as genetic material. But once it enters the body, it "hijacks" our healthy cells to gain the super power to replicate the virus. Ultraviolet rays, especially UVC rays with high photon energy, can destroy the DNA and RNA structures of various viruses and bacteria, prevent their reproduction and achieve efficient sterilization effects. UVC is absorbed by proteins and nucleic acids in bacteria and viruses, causing their proteins to be affected, thereby losing their activity and causing the death of bacteria and viruses. The 2019 new coronavirus is replicated by RNA, so whether it is a UVC lamp or an ozone lamp (the main band is 185nm), it can effectively destroy bacteria. Ultraviolet sterilization and disinfection is a non-contact, full-space killing method. Compared with alcohol and hydrogen peroxide, it will not only remain on the scrubbed surface, but also has good effects on the air radiated by light, bacteria and viruses of any shape on the surface The effect, especially for the new coronaviruses recently discussed by medical experts, can be transmitted through aerosols in the air, which can achieve a very good blocking effect.
