How UVC LED Disinfection Eliminates the Threat of COVID-19 on Surfaces in 30 Seconds
UVC disinfection has long been a key method of sterilization and reducing bacteria in hospitals, offices, factories, airplanes and more. Studies have shown it can in fact be used against coronaviruses, which has prompted talks about how it eliminates the threat of COVID-19. Thankfully, results from a successful industry-academic joint research between Seoul Viosys and the research group of top-ranked Korea University prove the world’s first 99.9% sterilization of COVID-19 in 30 seconds.
In light of the recent announcement, our Future Lighting Solutions division has teamed up with global LED specialist Seoul Viosys to meet the soaring production needs of our partners by devoting resources to UVC LEDs, compatible optics, simulation tools and support. We are committed to helping our partners seamlessly incorporate UVC technology in various designs and applications.
How does UVC LED Disinfection work?
UVC LED is a shorter, more energetic wavelength of light, which has been fundamental to sterilization for some time. The strong radiation completely changes the genetic structure of coronaviruses and prevents the viral particles from mutating.
Recent applications of UVC LED disinfection to combat the coronavirus
- Busses in China have been blasted by beams of ultraviolet light to greatly reduce the spread of the virus.
- UVC LED disinfection technology has recently been combined with light-emitting robots to help fight COVID-19.
- In addition to washing hands before and after handling cash, paper money has been exposed to UV light and high temperatures to disinfect them.
