FAQ

How does it work?

Ultraviolet light in the germicidal wavelength (185-280 nano-meters) renders the organisms sterile. When organisms can no longer reproduce, they die. Our solution kills the bacteria on both your hands and the device simultaneously. 

What is UV?

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a component of the electromagnetic spectrum that falls in the region between visible light and X-Rays. This invisible radiation includes the wavelength range of 100 nm to 400 nm. UV light can be further subdivided and categorized into four separate regions: Far- UVC, UVA, UVB & UVC

How long does The Arc last?

The Arc will last for up to 3 years with regular use. We provide a comprehensive maintenance package for all of our products that provides replacement parts in the event of defective models.

Should I clean my device?

Yes - depending on the surrounding environment, UVC lamps should be checked periodically (approximately every three months) and can be cleaned with a dry cotton cloth or paper towel.

What are the category of UV light do we use?

Far-UVC. Far UVC efficiently inactivates bacteria without harm to exposed mammalian skin. This is because, due to its strong absorbance in biological materials, far-UVC light cannot penetrate even the outer (non living) layers of human skin or eye; however, because bacteria and viruses are of micrometer or smaller dimensions, far-UVC can penetrate and inactivate them. 

What are the benefits of far-UVC ?

Far-UVC provides a compact, durable and well suited to battery powered option for elimination of bacteria on point-of-care tools and mobile healthcare equipment. These devices quickly and reliably provide low to high level disinfection on a range of semi and non-critical patient care equipment. Proven maintenance free germicidal performance against spore forming bacteria.

What is UV Dose?

UV Dose is the amount of UV radiation a microbe is exposed to and depends on the intensity of UV radiation and exposure time. A number of biological studies have produced widely accepted typical UV dose requirements for most common target microbes in disinfection.

Can the bacteria still effect me after using UVC Technology?

No, It is widely accepted that it is not necessary to kill pathogens with UV light, but rather apply enough UV light to prevent the organism from replicating. The UV doses required to prevent replication are orders of magnitude lower than required to kill, making the cost of UV treatment to prevent infection commercially viable.

How does UVC disinfection work? 

As evident by multiple research studies and reports, when biological organisms are exposed to deep UV light in the range of 200 nm to 300 nm it is absorbed by DNA, RNA, and proteins. Absorption by proteins can lead to rupture of cell walls and death of the organism. Absorption by DNA or RNA (specifically by thymine bases) is known to cause inactivation of the DNA or RNA double helix strands through the formation of thymine dimers. If enough of these dimers are created in DNA, the DNA replication process is disrupted, and the cell cannot replicate.

What are some other benefits of far-UVC? 

Far-UVC (207–222 nm) is highly antimicrobial and can be directly applied to acute wound infections to kill pathogens without unacceptable damage to host tissue. UVC is already widely applied for sterilization of inanimate objects. .
