Can UVC Light destroy Covid-19?

LED Stories


Back in the days, UVC Light technology helped deal with outbreaks such as measles and tuberculosis and is now being used in hospitals to reduce microbial burden.


Since the start of COVID-19, the World Health Organization accepted the possibility of coronavirus transmission via contaminated objects. Objects get infected when COVID-19 patients touch the object surfaces, affecting the fast spread.


A team of scientists from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, UCLA, University of California, Princeton University, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a research on how long does COVID-19 remains active (viable) on surfaces like metals, plastics, cardboards, etc.

The study proves the transmission of coronavirus through the air or by touching surfaces contacted by COVID-19 infected people.


How can UVC light stop the spread?


When microbes are exposed to UVC light (200 – 300 nm); DNA, RNA, and proteins absorb it.

When UVC reaches the proteins, it breaks the cell walls. When DND/RNA absorbs the UVC, it inactivates the double helix strands by forming thymine dimers. These dimers hinder the replication process. When appropriate doses of UVC are exposed to the microorganisms, the replication ends. At higher power, it directly kills.


The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) expects this UV disinfection method to significantly reduce the transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, etc.


LED FUTURE has several products to offer for mobile phones, keyboards, tools, office equipment, etc disinfection. Such as IQ Mobile 80, Disinfection Cabinets, Room Disinfection Device, Car Indoor Disinfection Device, Double Light System, and Automated disinfection robot. All these devices are designed, manufactured, tested and certified in Finland.
