India's 1st Human-Safe Far-UVC 222nm Disinfection Light Module
Far-UVC technology is included in FORTUNE Magazine’s annual “Change the World” list.
Efficacy and safety for humans is proven by Columbia University (USA) and Kobe University (Japan).
N-Lighten’s ready-to-use lamps and tubes can be attached on door frames, ceilings and disinfection tunnels to safely disinfect surfaces, occupants and visitors in seconds.
FAR-UV = SAFE UV
10x Better Than Conventional UV
Studies at Columbia University’s Irving Medical Center conclude that far-ultraviolet C (UVC) light, at a wavelength that is safe for humans i.e. 222nm, kills more than 99.9% of coronaviruses. These coronaviruses are structurally similar to the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the novel COVID-19. 222nm light is safe for us because it cannot penetrate through the dead-cell layer on the surface of our skin or the tear layer on the surface of our eyes - but because bacteria and viruses are physically very small, 222nm light kills them.
Disinfect occupied rooms and visitors
222nm Far-UVC is equally effective at disinfection as 254nm (Conventional UVC). This wavelength of UV light can be used to inactivate viruses and bacteria without the negative side effects on skin. These wavelengths are also safe for eyes with the light being completely absorbed by the cornea, leaving the the eye undamaged.
N-Lighten™ uses excimer lamps, which have a special chamber filled with noble gas that does not use inner electrodes and is completely mercury-free. When high voltage is applied across the outside of the glass, the gas inside excites and emits UV light. This construction means that these lamps can be turned on or off instantly without warm-up time or decreased lifetime similar to other lamps.
For Hospitals, Offices, Educational Institutes, Airports and Everywhere Else
Since it's safe for use in spaces like hospitals, buses, planes, trains, train stations, schools, restaurants, offices, theaters, gyms, and anywhere that people gather indoors, N-Lighten™ can be used in combination with other measures, like wearing face masks to limit the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses.
