How does UV-C sterilizers work?
UV-C light effectively destroys nucleic acids and breaks apart germ DNA. With their DNA broken, germs can’t function or reproduce. The organisms die, leaving your device clean and sterile.
What is UV-C light?
The Three Types of UV Rays UV light has three wavelength categories: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-C light is a short-wavelength, ultraviolet light that breaks apart germ DNA, leaving it unable to function or reproduce. In other words, UV-C light is germicidal (UV-A and UV-B light are not). UV-C can even neutralize “superbugs” that have developed a resistance to antibiotics. Your phone's warm battery allows bacteria to thrive and reproduce. UV-C light penetrates the cell and disrupts the DNA, killing the pathogen. Our UV-C light is not hot, so while it effectively kills bacteria, it will not hurt your phone. History of UV and Sanitization Sanitizing with UV-C light has been a normal practice since the mid-20th century. In fact, the 1903 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for using UV light to fight tuberculosis. Today, hospitals and laboratories use UV light to keep their facilities sterile, which means it's perfect for sanitizing mobile devices, which are especially good at harboring and growing bacteria
