Using the Power of Light: Preventing the Airborne Spread of Coronavirus and Influenza Virus

Using the Power of Light: Preventing the Airborne Spread of Coronavirus and Influenza Virus

At Columbia University we have developed a new technology, using the power of light, which has every promise of limiting the spread of coronavirus, as well as more familiar viruses like influenza and measles. Click here for more information. http://www.columbia.edu/~djb3/Far%20UVC.html

A team of scientists at Columbia University Irving Medical Center has demonstrated that low doses of 222-nm far ultraviolet C (far-UVC) light inactivate 99.9% of aerosolized seasonal coronaviruses HCoV-229E and HCoV-OC43. As all human coronaviruses have similar genomic sizes, far-UVC light would be expected to show similar inactivation efficiency against SARS-CoV-2 and other human coronaviruses. […]

June 25, 2020 — More than 99.9% of seasonal coronaviruses present in airborne droplets were killed when exposed to a particular wavelength of ultraviolet light that is safe to use around humans, a new study at Columbia University Irving Medical Center has found. “Based on our results, continuous airborne disinfection with far-UVC light at the […]

Repetitive irradiation with 222nm UVC shown to be non-carcinogenic and safe for sterilizing human skin

Repetitive irradiation with 222nm UVC shown to be non-carcinogenic and safe for sterilizing human skin

Joint research between Kobe University and Ushio Inc. has provided proof for the first time in the world that direct and repetitive illumination from 222nm ultraviolet radiation C (UVC), which is a powerful sterilizer, does not cause skin cancer. This suggests that 222nm UVC is also safe for human eyes and skin. This technology is […]
