Two latest studies show that UVC LED can effectively kill COVID-19

Since this year, countries around the world have invested heavily in the development of methods to effectively kill new coronaviruses. In the field of UVC sterilization and disinfection, many manufacturers and researchers have achieved initial results, such as Seoul VIOSYS, Ushio in Japan, several well-known universities in Japan and the United States. Recently, new research has sent positive signals.

German UV technology developer proves that short-wave UVC irradiation can effectively kill new coronavirus

According to foreign media reports, the German UV technology developer Hönle Group has announced that short-wave UVC irradiation can effectively inactivate new coronaviruses.

According to public information, Hönle Group was established in 1976 and is a leading global supplier of industrial UV technology. Its products cover UV units, UV equipment, UV nitrogen dryers, UV lamps and UV bulbs, IR lamps, UV detection technology, etc. Used in various industrial applications such as printing (offset printing or 3D printing), coating and glazing (such as 3D coating), bonding or molding, surface sterilization, water sterilization, etc.

It is reported that the Hönle Group conducts relevant research in the Institute of Virology at the Frankfurt University School of Medicine. The research results show that its UV unit can kill coronavirus in a few seconds, with a sterilization rate of 99.99%.

The researchers used different UV technologies during the test, clearly proving that both the UVC gas discharge lamp and the UVC LED, the sterilization rate and sterilization time can be kept constant and sustainable.

Therefore, the Hönle Group believes that the use of UVC radiation to sterilize the surrounding air and surfaces can reliably and effectively reduce the risk of new coronaviruses. Combined with various products equipped with UVC technology, the disinfection site can be expanded to air sterilization, surface sterilization and other Many applications.

Miyazaki University and NIKKISO joint experiment shows that its UVC LED lamp can inhibit the infection of new coronavirus

According to reports, Japan’s Miyazaki University cooperated with NIKKISO to jointly study the sterilization effect of UVC LED lamps. On May 27, Miyazaki University announced that joint experiments showed that NIKKISO’s short-wave UVC LED lights can effectively suppress the infectivity of new coronaviruses and kill them.

It is reported that in this study, the researchers used UVC LED lamps to irradiate the liquid containing the new coronavirus for 30 seconds. Three days later, they found that the infectivity of the new coronavirus was reduced by more than 99.9%. Miyazaki University hopes that the product can be used to prevent infections inside hospitals.

It is understood that NIKKISO launched the UVC LED water purifier for sterilization of flowing water last year, and this year launched a UV LED sterilization sweeping robot, UVC LED sterilization stick and other products in cooperation with Formosa Petrochemical in Taiwan to help epidemic prevention work.
