SteriFlight UVC Germicidal Irradiation
SteriFlight uses the most advanced UVC technology for classrooms
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UVC) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
SteriFlight Uses UVC
Ultraviolet (UV) means “beyond violet” and refers to a range of electromagnetic waves with a shorter wavelength (higher frequency and energy) than visible violet light. UV is divided into three types with reducing wavelengths and increasing energy. They are UVA, UVB, and UVC. For UV sterilization, only UVC (100-280nm) has high enough energy to effectively kill microorganisms.
SteriFlight Is Effective
UV sterilization is effective for viruses and bacteria, foodborne pathogens, natural microbiota, molds, and yeasts.
The application of UVGI to disinfection has been an accepted practice since the mid-20th century. It has been used primarily in medical sanitation and sterile work facilities.
