99.4 per cent of the novel corona virus can be killed using a short wavelength, energy rich UVC radiation in a matter of seconds. The Experiments show that the Gräfelfinger company, Dr. Hönle AG, now in Frankfurt to perform let.
Gräfelfing – employees of the Institute for Medical Virology of the University hospital of Frankfurt tested in the last week, the irradiation of corona viruses with the devices of Dr. Hönle series Stericube and Steriair. "The grown in Petri dishes being viruses were in an S3-laboratory is irradiated, what level for security level 3, the second highest level of laboratory security," says Dieter Stirner, sales Director at Dr. Hönle. The bred corona virus were irradiated from a different distance and length "with the two techniques, UV discharge lamps and UV-LED," says Stirner. The total in the laboratory reached kill rate with both techniques was 99.4 percent. Almost all of the corona virus were disabled by the UVC-radiation and harmless to be made. Only a few seconds were necessary for this – a great success in the fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that many experts had suspected and has now been proven scientifically. The Gräfelfinger company had let the Trials in Frankfurt, as in the laboratory nor in the short term, capacity was available. Soon there will be more Attempts at the Fraunhofer Institute.
risk of infection can be minimized
By Frankfurt's results, however, it is clear that through UVC irradiation, the risk of infection with Covid-19 in the air or by surface to minimize – for example, if the Virus suits on protection, books, teaching AIDS in schools and universities, Glasses at an optician's, shoes and handbags in a store or on the money. Also, the disinfection of the air about waiting rooms, guest rooms, kitchens, and classrooms is through the UVC-radiation is possible. The Dr. Hönle AG has, therefore, modified their device series Stericube and Steriair more for the Corona-use. The devices, the irradiation for the UVC can be used, depending on the discharge or LED technology, the type and number of pieces for 500 to a few Thousand Euro directly at Dr. Hönle available.
The Dr. Hönle AG, with headquarters in Gräfelfing, is one of the world's leading suppliers for industrial UV technology. The Gräfelfinger develop, produce and distribute UV/LED-UV systems, UV lamps and UV measurement.Updated Date: 22 May 2020, 14:34
