Peace Of Mind For Your Health & Safety
The Jacuzzi® UV Wand Disinfects 99.9% of germs, bacteria, and viruses within seconds
Harmful germs and bacteria are everywhere. Now more than ever it’s important to ensure that the space around us is healthy and safe. Sterilizing hand gels, disinfectant sprays, and sanitizing wipes are not enough to ensure a healthy environment. Many bacteria and viruses are heat, cold, and drug-resistant, but they are not resistant to Ultraviolet light (UV).
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a component of the electromagnetic spectrum that falls in the region between visible light and X-Rays.
This invisible radiation includes the wavelength range of 100 nm to 400 nm. UV light can be further subdivided and categorized into four separate regions:
As evident by multiple research studies and reports, when biological organisms are exposed to deep UV light in the range of 200 nm to 300 nm, the UV is absorbed by the DNA, RNA, and proteins.
Absorption by proteins can lead to rupture of cell walls and the death of the organism. Absorption by DNA or RNA (specifically by thymine bases) is known to cause inactivation of the DNA or RNA double helix strands through the formation of thymine dimers. If enough of these dimers are created in DNA, the DNA replication process is disrupted, and the cell cannot replicate.
It is widely accepted that it is not necessary to kill pathogens with UV light, but rather apply enough UV light to prevent the organism from replicating.
UV-C has been proven to kill several strands of viruses (below are research studies demonstrating the effectiveness of UV-C light on SARS and MERS).
Emitting both UV-C at 270 – 280nm and UV-A at 380 – 405nm, UV light wands damage the DNA and RNA in bacteria and viruses rendering them harmless. Using high powered LED’s, the UV Wand allows you to disinfect up to 10x faster than most fluorescent UV devices and the Jacuzzi® UV Wand is up to 2x more powerful than other LED UV devices.
