How Does UV Light Work?

When Ultraviolet light enters a cell, it disables the cell by rendering the organism inactive or unable to reproduce.

Degree of Inactivation by UVC

Dose = I x T (mJ/cm2)

The degree of inactivation by UV wavelengths is directly related to the UV dose applied. The UV dose is the product of UV intensity (I)(expressed as energy per unit surface area) and exposure time (T).  We have included a Log Reduction chart to help you find your targeted Microorganism and see the Millejoule required for deactivation.
