With LED technology development, LED applications in market are more and more wide. UV-C LED germicidal disinfection applications market also reaches a new height in 2016, prospects are bright. With more and more LED companies launch new products, UV-C LED technology will also develop faster.
Wavelength of 200~280nm UV part is called UV-C region; this region UV wavelength is short and has high energy. UV-C wavelength light has a great destructive effect on the body’s bacteria, viruses and micro-organisms. Sterilization principle is that UV-C lights irradiate bacteria and viruses etc single cell microbes, which directly destruct its life center DNA and RNA, and make it immediate death or loss of reproductive capacity. Generally, 1~2 seconds UV-C irradiation can achieve the sterilization effective. UV-C disinfection method has the advantages of fast speed, thorough, non-pollution, easy to operate and use and low cost maintenance.
UV-C LEDs are widely used in below applications:
- Germicidal Disinfection
- Water Purification
- Surface Sterilization
- Air Purification
- Analytical Instrumentation, Emitters
- Protein Analysis, DNA Sequencing, Drug Discovery
- Optical Sensing
- Ozone Monitoring
