Lucentᵘᵛ vs. COVID-19
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (“UVGI”) light technology has proven widely effective in inactivating extreme contagions including Ebola, SARS, and Influenza. UVGI has been utilized for decades in operating rooms, water purification facilities, and bio-research labs. Many medical facilities and first responders now use UV-C lights on surfaces and areas potentially contaminated by COVID-19 as a frontline measure.
SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, is related to the Coronaviruses underlying SARS and MERS – and these Coronaviruses are inactivated by just one minute of proper exposure to any Lucentᵘᵛ light.
It remains to be seen whether UV-C will inactivate COVID-19. Thankfully, the early returns are promising and have encouraged burgeoning adoption of UV-C as a potential COVID-19 killer. Moreover, UV-C is a brilliant weapon against a wide variety of better-known contagions – and is being considered an investment to battle illnesses of all types – especially now that deadly contagions and pandemic illnesses loom large among safety concerns.
Lucentᵘᵛ lights have been designed and built behind decades of industry-leading experience in the field of UVGI. Our world-class UV-C lights combine power, portability, innovation, and a high-quality user experience. All of our products are made in the U.S.A.
In a post COVID-19 world, we cannot afford to ignore pandemic illness as a menacing and persistent threat. It is therefore the Lucentᵘᵛ mission to provide a robust and reliable weapon in the fight to keep people healthy.
