UV-C light inactivates viruses of any kind immediately and permanently. But other germs such as bacteria, multi-resistant pathogens or fungi are also killed when irradiated correctly.

Wherever you need a maximum reduction of infection risk disinfection with UV-C light provides a high permanent benefit.

How safe is disinfection with UV (UVGI) light?

UV light is highly effective. Devices from Heraeus Noblelight are absolutely safe to use. For effective disinfection with UV light, all our devices for air disinfection are intelligently shielded. All Soluva® products are designed to contain the efficient UVGI light in the reaction chamber where it destroys the viruses.

UV lighthas been used in the industrial sector for the disinfection of packaging materials, air and water for years without any problems.

Heraeus Noblelight has been working for many years with various institutes and research facilities. It was scientifically proven that UV (UVGI) light in an appropriate dose makes germs harmless.

Several recent scientific studies confirm the effectiveness of UVC rays also against the corona virus SARS-CoV-2 - on surfaces and in the air.
