Ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200-280 nanometers (Germicidal Range). Visible light measures 400 nm.
When microorganisms are exposed to UV-C rays, the DNA and nucleic acids are destroyed, leaving the virus/germ/spores inactive and unable to function.
In 2021 the FDA published an article about the benefits of using LED UV-C technology to combat COVID-19. Click on link….. UV Lights and Lamps: Ultraviolet-C Radiation, Disinfection, and Coronavirus | FDA

One of the great things about the testing is it shows the angle of our lights makes it safer for people around the light.
