UVC Disinfection Robot, Fight against Viruses
Coronavirus & UVC
The susceptibility of coronaviruses to UV light has been demonstrated in information published by ResearchGate.net. A number of studies are cited which demonstrate how coronaviruses are inactivated when exposed to varying degrees of ultraviolet light.
The D90 value range (the UV dose required for 90% inactivation) for coronaviruses is 7-241 J/m2, with a mean of 67 J/m2. This indicates the vulnerability of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus, enabling us to calculate the times required for our UV lamps to achieve a specific log reduction at varying distances from the UV light source.
