Planning for a Healthy Future: Healthcare and UV Disinfection

Thanks to the success of the first healthcare/UV workshop, another, larger workshop is being planned with more extensive coverage of certain topics – industry, academics, healthcare, federal regulations. Possible areas of focus include identifying systematic barriers to UV-C technology implementation and discussing the latest evidence for UV-C in the prevention of healthcare-associated infections (HAI).

Drs. Richard Martinello, Yale New Haven Hospital, and Dianne Poster, National Institute of Standards and Technology, are leading the planning effort. The venue will be selected to maximize participation across all four coverage areas named above, with many candidate sites being considered. The current target date is early 2020...



Ultraviolet Light Fights New Virus

In the fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, an old weapon has re-emerged [1]. More than a century after Niels Finsen won the 1903 Nobel Prize for discovering that ultraviolet (UV) light could kill germs [2], UV light is surging in popularity as a method for disinfecting hospital rooms and other public spaces...

Ultraviolet light can make indoor spaces safer during the pandemic – if it’s used the right way

Ultraviolet light has a long history as a disinfectant and the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, is readily rendered harmless by UV light. The question is how best to harness UV light to fight the spread of the virus and protect human health as people work, study, and shop indoors.

The virus spreads in several ways. The main route of transmission is through person-to-person contact via aerosols and...

LED lights found to kill coronavirus: Global first in fight against COVID-19

Researchers from Tel Aviv University (TAU) have proven that the coronavirus can be killed efficiently, quickly, and cheaply using ultraviolet (UV) light-emitting diodes (UV-LEDs). They believe that the UV-LED technology will soon be available for private and commercial use.

This is the first study conducted on the disinfection efficiency of UV-LED irradiation at different wavelengths or frequencies on a virus from the family of coronaviruses. The study was led by Professor Hadas Mamane, Head of the Environmental Engineering Program at TAU's School of Mechnical Engineering, Iby and Aladar Fleischman Faculty of Engineering. The article was published in November 2020 issue of the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology...

Returning to Work Amid the Pandemic: UV-C for Mitigating Viral Infections

Since the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, ultraviolet (UV) technologies have been used to mitigate viral infections through disinfection of personal protective equipment, surfaces and air. Recent media attention has shifted towards using the technology to safely reopen schools and businesses while following regulation for maximum allowable daily UV-C exposure dose of 23 mJ/cm2 at 220 nm and 6 mJ/cm2 at 254 nm. These articles highlight the potential use of (i) UV-C lights in non-human occupied areas and surfaces and (ii) far-UV-C light for in-situ use with human activity...
