UV Disinfection in the Age of SARS-CoV-2

Choosing the best wavelength for optimal disinfection and decontamination




UV radiation disinfects and decontaminates by modulating the bonds within biological molecules. Different UV wavelengths have varying effects on these bonds, so determining the most effective wavelengths for specific microorganisms and macromolecules of interest can help optimize disinfection and decontamination efficacy.
