UV Light COVID-19 Resources

Dimer UV is working with the top resource facilities and institutions to help defeat COVID-19 with UV Light.

Signify's UV-C Light Inactivates Covid-19 Virus

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.

Survival and Transmission of Coronavirus in the Healthcare Environment

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.

Study Suggests New Coronavirus May Remain on Surfaces for 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.
