Dimer UVC lamp supplier, Signify, commissioned a study with Boston University to determine SARS-CoV-2 UVC susceptibility against UVC Signify lamps. The study found a dose of 22 mJ/cm² will result in a log 6 reduction. (99.9999%)
The UVHammer consistently delivers 24 mJ/cm² to any surface at any angle in a matter of seconds.
Viral survival studies using human and animal coronaviruses as potential surrogates for SARS coronavirus show that if deposited in high numbers, coronaviruses dried onto surfaces may survive for days at temperatures and humidity levels found in healthcare environments.
In cool temperatures and low relative humidity environments, Coronaviruses have demonstrated survival up to 28 days.
Scientists found that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can be detected in aerosols for up to three hours and on plastic and stainless steel surfaces for up to three days.
The findings emphasize the importance of hand washing and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces to protect against infection.
