Does UV-C Light Really Kill Germs?
Get all your questions answered below!
There is very high energy in the short wavelength UV-C light that can kill germs. There are different wavelengths of UV light, but only the short wavelength of UV-C light is capable of destroying microorganisms. In fact it can kill up to 99% of germs. UV-C light is generated naturally by the sun, but the ozone layer around the earth blocks most of its rays. However, UV-C light technonolgy enables us to generate these germ killing UV-C rays here on earth.
UV-C wavelengths are between 200-300 nanometers, which is germicidal. These wavelengths are capable of destroying microorganisms such as germs, viruses and bacteria by damaging their cells.
The high energy from short wavelength UV-C light is absorbed in the cellular RNA and DNA of microorganisms, damaging the nucleic acids and preventing the microorganisms from infecting and replicating.
