UV-C light is a short-wavelength, ultraviolet light that breaks apart germ DNA, leaving it unable to function or to reproduce. In other words, UV-C light is germicidal that can even neutralize “superbugs” that have developed a resistance to antibiotics, therefore making it perfect to fight off any harmful pathogens.
The UV-C light also has the ability to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. It is the latest proven development in a non-chemical approach to disinfection.
The sterilizer device is a portable self use device which will give you the option to keep any area you wish germ free and sterilized, without the use of chemicals You can use this in the comfort of your own home.
The effect of UV light on microorganisms is due to the high-energy of UVC light. The DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid = genetic information carrier) of the bacteria and viruses present in the water are damaged by the UV-C rays. The light penetrates through the cell wall into the microorganism and causes a reaction with the DNA of the cell, breaking up the carbon bonds within the DNA strands. This occurs in a matter of seconds, leading to the inactivatation of the microorganisms. This disrupts the metabolism of the cell as well as its reproduction capabilities.
