Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI)

UVGI is an acronym Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation and is defined as the use of Ultraviolet wavelengths of light in the germicidal range (200-320nm) for the disinfection of air and surfaces.  The Wavelength ranges incorporate both UVC and UVB spectrums. ...

Pathogen Deactivation Method

Pathogens are any microbes that cause infections in humans and animals, including viruses, bacteria and fungi.  Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) is commonly used to deactivate (aka inactivate) the DNA and RNA of pathogens, rendering them incapable of...

UVGI Light and Pathogen Destruction

UV lamps used in UVGI systems vary widely in size, shape, and power input/output.  They utilize wavelengths in the UVB or UVC range, between 100 and 320nm.  While the most common UV lamps are high intensity discharge (HID) lamps and low-pressure mercury vapor lamps,...
