“PURE” indoor CONTINUOUS air disinfection devices (iCadd) utilize Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation(UVGI), which is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength (253,7 nm) ultraviolet C (or UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their RNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. It is an invaluable, extremely effective, low-cost and eco-friendly method for sterilizing objects and disinfecting indoor air. The application of UVGI to disinfection has been an accepted practice since the mid-20th century. It has been used primarily in medical sanitation and sterile work facilities.
Nowadays, Global Organizations such as the FDA, WHO, CDC, ASRHAE, HPA have integrated UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation) technology into their Health and Safety protocols.
Recent certified laboratory studies have verified that SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), even at high viral titers, can be inactivated rapidly by UV-C irradiation, revealing that this method is reliable for disinfection purposes in health care facilities and all kinds of indoor spaces.
