MYSOTER® is a company that specializes in the development of innovative technologies for air and surface disinfection. One of their most exciting innovations is Far UVC, a new type of ultraviolet light that has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about air and surface disinfection. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Far UVC and its potential benefits.
What is Far UVC?
Far UVC is a type of ultraviolet light that has a wavelength between 207 and 222 nanometers. This is shorter than the wavelength of traditional UVC light, which has a wavelength of 254 nanometers. Far UVC is still able to kill bacteria and viruses, but it is less harmful to human skin and eyes.
How does Far UVC work?
Far UVC works by damaging the DNA of bacteria and viruses. When bacteria or viruses are exposed to Far UVC light, the light penetrates their cell walls and damages their DNA. This prevents them from reproducing and eventually leads to their death.
The unique advantage of Far UVC is that it is unable to penetrate human skin or eyes, which means it is much safer for human exposure. This makes it an ideal solution for air and surface disinfection in public spaces, where large numbers of people come into contact with the environment.
Potential Benefits of Far UVC
Far UVC has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about air and surface disinfection. Here are some of the potential benefits:
- Safe for Humans
Far UVC is much safer for human exposure than traditional UVC light. This means that it can be used in public spaces without posing a risk to human health.
- Effective against Bacteria and Viruses
Far UVC is still able to kill bacteria and viruses, despite its shorter wavelength. This means that it can be used for air and surface disinfection in a variety of settings.
