WAVELENGTHS: 280NM-265NM

UV light works effectively and rapidly to eradicate bacteria like Clostridium difficile, which is one of the most commonly found bacteria in hospitals. As hospital acquired infections (HAIs) contribute to as many as 15,000 deaths yearly, finding a way to eradicate these pathogens is crucial. While automated solutions such as hydrogen peroxide vapor, ozone, and excimer lamp systems show a great deal of promise, UVC LEDs offer the best experience for the patient and hospital staff with distinct advantages over lamps.

Disinfection with UV LEDs means no toxic material, shorter inactivation times, ease of use, and cost effectiveness.

They have instant on-off capability, can be used with automatic or remote methods, and have long lifetimes with low power consumption. With narrow spectral bands and wavelength tunability, UV LEDs can also be used for faster inactivation and more accuracy in targeting bacterial groups.

UV LEDs offer long lifetimes and smaller-form factors for design flexibility, allowing for their use in disinfecting medical equipment, patient personal devices, and hospital rooms. As mercury is undesirable in hospitals and other sensitive environments where accidental exposure may occur, UV LEDs provide an alternative to lamps that can produce reliable UVC germicidal irradiation.
