LO20 : UV-C RADIATION AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO FIGHT AGAINST SARS-COV-2

UV radiation is part of sunlight and represents 10% of electromagnetic solar radiation. According to the wavelength, UV radiation is divided into three groups – UV-A, UV-B and UV-C.

UV-A radiation has a relatively long wavelength and 95% of it reaches the Еarth surface. It is the radiation that causes sun tanning. Prolonged exposure to UV-A rays can cause long-term damage such as skin cancer.

UV-B rays have a medium wavelength and most of them are filtered by the atmosphere. They cannot penetrate deep into the skin, but are biologically very active, causing severe burns, which in addition to aging the skin increase the risk of skin cancer.

UV-C rays have the shortest wavelength, completely filtered by the atmosphere. This radiation is the most dangerous for organisms. Even short-term exposure to it can cause irreversible changes. It destroys the cell structure of the microorganisms. Viruses, bacteria and fungi are not resistant to this type of radiation. If the radiation intensity is high enough, UV-C disinfection is a reliable and environmentally friendly method, as the addition of chemicals is not necessary.

LO20 is a sterilizer lamp that artificially generates UV-C radiation. It can be used in medical centers, offices, kindergartens and other enclosed spaces.

Thanks to its mobile structure, it can be easily positioned.

The safe and efficient operation of the lamp is ensured by:

  •  24-hour dual-zone programmable timer, for operation in a time range without human presence;
  •  motion sensor for automatic shutdown when an object appears in the work area;
  •  fan for diffusion of already purified air.

Laboratory tests performed by NEIDL at the Boston University School of Medicine prove that SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) at a UV-C dose of 5mJ/cm2 (exposure time of 6 sec) destroys 99% of SARS-CoV-2 viruses on surfaces near the radiation source. This indicates that LO20 may be a leading tool in disinfecting enclosed spaces.

Since its establishment in 1995, AMET Ltd follows its mission to develop contemporary production in the field of medical technology and electronics. The company is reliable and sought-after partner on the Bulgarian and international market, and follows the best international practices in the development of its products.
