About UV Light Disinfection

UV  light disinfection technologies can play an important role in reducing the transmission of various bacteria and viruses, based on current scientific data and empirical evidence. UV is a known disinfectant for air, water, and surfaces that can help to reduce the risk of acquiring an infection in contact with many micro-organisms when applied correctly and safely.

 

 

 

UV Light Disinfection Effectiveness. A Review Of Scientific Studies.

Prevention of infections from drug-resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) currently presents major health care challenges. A 2018 study featured in the journal “Plos One” concluded that far-UVC light has bactericidal qualities and can prevent transmission of drug-resistant infectious agents. [1] These findings confirm previous studies that evaluated the effects of UVC radiation on various Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus [2], E Coli, Salmonella, and microbes resistant to antibiotics such as methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin‐resistant Enterococcus species (VRE) and Klebsiella pneumonia ATCC 700721. ‎[3].

UVC Light Treatment For  Coronaviruses. Any potential for Sars-Cov-2 disinfection?

UV light,  between 200-280nm, was found to inactivate at least two coronaviruses related to the novel Sars-Cov-2  virus: SARS-CoV-1 ‎[4]and MERS-CoV ‎[5], ‎[6]. It should be mentioned that this inactivation has been shown under controlled conditions i.e. in laboratory settings. The effectiveness of UV light in practice will depend on various factors including the exposure time and the ability of the UVC rays to reach these viruses in water, air, and on various materials and surfaces.

UV Light Disinfection. Safety concerns

UVC rays are safely used on various surfaces, but humans should limit exposure to them. UVC rays can cause skin and eye damage. Although the research found that UVC rays within a specific range do not cause skin damage ‎[1], humans should avoid exposure, and this therapy should be used on various surfaces and spaces only.

Pulsed UV light treatment Versus Continuous UV Light Treatment

Pulsed UV light treatment is more effective and rapid for microorganism inactivation than continuous UV light sources  [7].

Pulsed light technology has received significant attention as a strategy for decontaminating food, packaging, water, and air and could also be used to decontaminate surfaces in hospitals. Pulsed UV light has the ability to  kill micro‐organisms by using ultrashort‐duration pulses of an intense broadband emission spectrum that includes UV‐C germicidal light (200–280 nm band) ‎[3]

The PXL Sanitizer Advantage: Effective UV Light Disinfection for Bacteria and Viruses

The PXL Sanitizer uses enhanced pulsed UV light to disinfect surfaces from bacteria and viruses. It could be the ideal option for disinfecting surfaces in the food and beverage industry, where multiple tools are shared in kitchens and other spaces that contain food and drinks. This device can be easily installed above the surface that has to be disinfected (ie fridge, countertops). It can also be used to disinfect handles, toilet seats, keyboards/mice, plates, pens, remote controls, and more. It is user friendly and has a compact design, using battery power or direct electrical connection. When turned on, the PXL sanitizer will illuminate the surface that has to be disinfected.

PXL Sanitizer- UV light disinfection effectiveness. PXL Sanitizer was tested by a third-party analytical microbiology certified laboratory, which found that this device is highly effective and can virtually eliminate bacteria with antibiotic resistance.

Fast PXL Sanitizer – The ultimate product, fast and efficient.

The effectiveness of the PXL Sanitizer increases with increased illumination treatment time. For details, see the measurements below from third-party certified microbiology laboratory testing.
