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. 

How hot do the LED's get?

Germicidal UVC LED lamps do not produce much heat - about the same as normal LED’s.

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 is UV-C?

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:

How long does The Arc last?

The Aurora One 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.

What are the benefits of UVC LED's?

UVC LEDs are compact, durable and well suited to battery powered operation for 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. Compact and portable product designs. Consistent, effective and trackable hygiene compliance

What are the 4 Categories of UV Light?

100 nm to 200 nm Far UV or vacuum UV (these wavelengths only propagate in a vacuum)

200 nm to 280 nm UVC – useful for disinfection and sensing

280 nm to 315 nm UVB – useful for curing, tanning and medical applications

315 nm to 400 nm UVA (or “near UV”) – useful for printing, curing, lithography, sensing and medical applications

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 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.

Will the bulbs effect me?

Prolonged, direct exposure to Mercury based UVC can cause temporary skin redness and eye irritation but does not cause skin cancer or cataracts. We use specialized UVC LED's that eliminate this risk with enhanced safety features ensuring 100% consumer safety. 

What is the full cost of the Arc?

The Arc is priced based on a subscription based model over the 3 year cycle of the products life. The operational cost of our technology is negligible compared to current methods available. For more information regarding pricing please reach out to info@uvctechltd.com

What are some other benefits of UV-C? Wound Growth Improvement through UV-C Light?

UVC (200–280 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. UVB (280–315 nm) has been directly applied to the wounded tissue to stimulate wound healing, and has been widely used as extracorporeal UV radiation of blood to stimulate the immune system. UVA (315–400 nm) has distinct effects on cell signaling, but has not yet been widely applied to wound care.
