the value of light
Germicidal Ultraviolet light (UVC) is a CDC approved physical disinfectant that is highly effective against microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. The most common UVC lamps emit UVC at a wavelength of around 254nm, which closely matches the peak absorbance of nucleic acids (DNA/RNA) which is around 260nm. The nucleic acids of bacteria and viruses strongly absorb UVC light and are effectively inactivated.
Bluemorph Health Solutions uses American made low pressure amalgam bulbs sleeved in a special polymer that transmits UVC light while containing the contents of the lamp to protect the user in case of breakage.
