German UV Technology Developer Proves Effectiveness of UVC irradiation for Diminishing Coronavirus

Dr. Hönle, a Germany-based UV technology developer, announced that it has proved that energy-rich short-waved UVC irradiation is highly effective for inactivating SARS-CoV-2 viruses, pathogen of COVID-19. The tests were conducted at the Institute for Medical Virology of the University Hospital Frankfurt.

The results show that, using special Hönle UV units, the new corona virus can be killed reliably within seconds. An inactivation rate of 99.99% was confirmed in the laboratory.

The tests were carried out applying different UV technologies and showed a clear result that whether the disinfection units were equipped with UVC discharge lamps or UV-LED, inactivation rate and inactivation time remained constant and reproducible.

Dr. Hönle thus concluded that the risk of COVID-19 infection can be reliably and efficiently minimized by disinfecting ambient air and surfaces with UVC irradiation. By combining different UVC radiation equipped products, disinfecting applications can be extended covering air disinfection, surface disinfection and more.
