The Best UV Light Sanitizer: how do you know?

At Izak Scientific, one of our biggest goals is to offer consumers and businesses the best UV light sanitizers they could buy. How do we do that? We simply looked at the most important factors that determine the quality of a UV light sanitizer. The source and type of UVC light have a huge impact on the effectiveness of a device. How the device is build and test can also predict a truly effective device.  Let’s look at the details:

  1. The best UV light sanitizer must have an effective, reliable source of ultraviolet C radiation.

The ultraviolet spectrum includes UVA  rays with wavelengths from 320 to 400 nm, UVB (280–320 nm), UVC (200–280 nm), and vacuum UV (below 200 nm). It is the UVC spectrum that has true germicidal (microbe killing) effects that makes UVC so powerful against pathogens. Furthermore, different UVC devices will have different efficacy.

IZAK Scientific line of  UVC devices is based on pulsed xenon light, which is superior to low mercury lamps or LED-UVC devices. Pulsed xenon light has broad antimicrobial action against viruses, bacteria, and fungi, it is a reliable source of ultraviolet C light and energy-efficient.

  1. The best UV light sanitizer incorporates the UV light bulb into a safe, easy to operate the device.

Some companies sell UV light bulbs alone. But is it neither safe nor effective to use them?

Based on extensive research and testing, IZAK Scientific’s devices are created for optimal safety and performance. It is well-known that ultraviolet C light not only kills microbes but cause damage to our bodily’s tissue, too.  Using the bulbs alone is not safe. On the other hand, PXL Sanitizer, PXL UV Chamber, and Fast PXL incorporated the light bulb into safe, easy to operate devices. Furthermore, the instruction manual offers details about the best way to use them to achieve surface or air disinfection.

  1. The best UV light sanitizer provides air disinfection

Various surfaces can be highly contaminated, but a UV light sanitizer should disinfect not only these surfaces, but the air as well. It is easy to catch an infection simply by breathing, and these microbes spread when infected people cough, sneeze, or talk. Some viruses or bacteria take hang in the air on dust particles, respiratory and water droplets.  Illness is caused when the microbe is inhaled or contacts mucus membranes or when secretions remaining on a surface are touched. 

While Sars-Cov-2 made the headlines recently [1], many other microbes can spread through air transmission including other coronaviruses (responsible for the common cold), influenza,  measles, enterovirus, norovirus, tuberculosis (TB), group A and B streptococci, staphylococci,  Legionella, meningococcus, Haemophilus, influenza and many more [2]. These UV light sanitizers are particularly helpful during the cold season, as many viruses accumulate indoors. [3]

Fast PXL from Izak Scientific does both jobs, effectively disinfecting surfaces and the air.

  1. The best UV light sanitizer is designed by experts, tested by third-party labs, and is manufactured according to specific standards.

Quality products need high standards. That’s why Izak Scientific put its devices to the test. Their efficacy was evaluated by third-party labs and special UVC cards called dosimeters. Izak Scientific is proudly certified and the company complies with ISO- 9001 standards. Furthermore, the team brings a wealth of expertise and research in the field of electro-optics and photonics.
