UV Light Technology Limited of Birmingham announce the launch of their high-intensity UV Germicidal Hand Lamp which will kill viruses or bacteria, including Ebola, in seconds without the need for chemicals.
This handheld UV germicidal light is ideal for mobile, rapid disinfection of surfaces and air. Its unrivalled performance offers the opportunity to achieve a 99% reduction of the Ebola virus in 5 seconds over a surface area of 500 mm x 500 mm. This enables large areas to be decontaminated by slow-scanning movements of the UV light beam, resulting in significantly reduced risk of cross-transmission of Ebola infection.
Paul Jackson, Managing Director of UV Light Technology Limited, says “Our UV 400W Germicidal Hand Lamp can be used as a stand-alone solution, or in combination with current cleaning methods to further reduce the risk of infection. It is set to play a vital role in controlling the spread of Ebola.”
The mobility of the UV handheld lamp will be particularly beneficial in the current Ebola crisis for applications such as disinfecting protective clothing prior to removal for those working in an Ebola risk or infected environment; decontamination of isolation rooms, hospital wards or ambulances and even public transport, for example, seating on an aircraft or bus used by suspected carriers of the virus.
In addition, a hanging bracket and clamp is available for fixed mounted applications, for example, room or area decontamination employing several units strategically positioned.
