Clinical Studies

UVC radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces. UVC radiation has effectively been used for decades to reduce the spread of bacteria, such as tuberculosis. For this reason, UVC lamps are often called "germicidal" lamps.

To use UV-C lamps effectively, it is necessary to follow a few simple precepts when choosing, positioning and verifying the lamps. In the absence of instruments dedicated to direct verification of irradiance,
photochromic UV-C dosimeters may represent a useful tool for easily verifying that a proper UV-C dose has been delivered.

A direct approach to limit airborne viral transmissions is to inactivate them within a short time of their production. Germicidal ultraviolet light, typically at 254 nm, is effective in this context but, used directly, can be a health hazard to skin and eyes. By contrast, far-UVC light (207–222 nm) efficiently
kills pathogens potentially without harm to exposed human tissues.

UVC or ‘germicidal’ lamps have been used for decades in healthcare and other settings to kill bacteria (e.g. tuberculosis), or viruses in air (inside light-tight air ducts), and for sterilization of drinking water. UVC radiation has been shown to inactivate the SARS-Coronavirus1. 

UV Angel has conducted two separate laboratory tests by an independent third party against surrogate pathogens including Escherichia
coli (gram negative), Staphylococcus aureus (gram positive), Cladosporium cladosporioides (fungus spore formers) and MS2 Bacteriophage (MS2) (virus surrogate).6 The UV Angel Air showed elimination rates from 90%. Laboratory tests and mathematical modeling show elimination rates approaching 100% against more than 80 serious disease-causing pathogens.

Anthem One UV-C light has been examined for its capability for eradication of human pathogenic viral agents including members of Coronaviruses, Flaviviruses, and Retroviruses. We demonstrated that 10-20 seconds exposure of human coronavirus OC-43, Zika Virus (ZIKV), and HTLV- 1 viral stocks to Anthem One UV-C light completely eliminates viral infectivity
in cells in culture. Test results were provided by both Temple and George Mason Universities.
