In particular, short-wave UV radiation (UV-C) is a highly effective disinfectant – within fractions of a second if the dosage is right. Moreover, no mutagenic resistances can develop – as can be the case e.g. with antibiotic treatment. UV sterilisation is used in a wide range of applications, since ultraviolet light can be used conveniently to disinfect water and other lipids, as well as for the disinfection of air. We use this effect for the UV disinfection solutions we offer:
with a wavelength of 254 nanometers, the UV-C radiation penetrates to the centre of the respective organism’s DNS, thereby inhibiting its metabolism. As a result, the microbes (including legionella and cryptosporidium) are inactivated and cannot multiply any longer.
