What is UV-C Light

Within the range of Ultraviolet light from 100-280 nano meters exists a range of UV that is medically categorized as germicidal. Meaning any light in this range has the ability to kill or disable bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19.

How does it work?

When Ultraviolet light enters a cell, it disables the cell by adding duplicate bonds to critical nucleic acids and proteins, rendering the organism inactive or unable to reproduce.
