Bacteria tests conducted by Eurofins Laboratories in Sweden have shown that LightLab’s PureFize® UV disinfection technology is very effective in combating germs.
In a bacteria test conducted at Eurofins Laboratories, E. coli (Eco 35 ATCC 8739) inoculated on TSA plates were effectively killed by illumination using the LightLab UV chips in a UV box designed for disinfection. The test showed 99.9% (log3) reduction of E. coli in two minutes and 99.9999% (log6) reduction in about four minutes.
The UV box was developed by LightLab using a reflective layer and six UV chips. The distance between the UV chips and a UV transparent glass on which the object was placed wad 70 mm.
