Columbia University Studies the Power of Far UV-C

Columbia University Studies the Power of Far UV-C
Exciting findings from a joint study by scientists at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and in the U.K. highlight the immense potential of a new type of ultraviolet light, known as far-UVC, in safeguarding indoor environments against airborne microbes. In a remarkably short span of under five minutes, far-UVC light reduced indoor airborne microbe levels by over 98%, even in the presence of continuous microbe spraying. This breakthrough, coupled with the innovative UVpro technology by Bioabundance, could be a game-changer in minimizing the transmission of airborne diseases like COVID-19 and influenza indoors, effectively lowering the risk of future pandemics.

Bioabundance's UVpro, leveraging the power of far-UVC technology, stands as a robust solution to keep indoor spaces safe. In conjunction with the findings of the study, the UVpro by Bioabundance offers an additional layer of protection by utilizing far-UVC light to inactivate harmful airborne viruses. This advanced technology has the potential to create safer indoor spaces and dramatically decrease person-to-person transmission of viruses. David Brenner, PhD, co-author of the study and director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, emphasizes that utilizing far-UVC technology like the UVpro in places where people gather indoors could serve as a preemptive measure against potential pandemics.

The simplicity, affordability, and minimal behavior change required for Bioabundance's UVpro installation make it a practical and effective solution. It is a passive technology that doesn't demand a change in human habits. Furthermore, a series of studies support the potential safety of far-UVC light, reassuring the viability of the UVpro as a long-term solution.

Far-UVC light, as leveraged by the UVpro, distinguishes itself from conventional germicidal UVC light by having a shorter wavelength that minimizes potential health risks to the skin and eyes. While conventional UVC light is effective in killing microbes, it can be hazardous in occupied indoor spaces. The UVpro offers comparable efficiency without such risks.

In the study, researchers tested the efficacy of far-UVC light in a room-sized chamber with the same ventilation rate as typical indoor spaces. The results were outstanding: the lamps inactivated more than 98% of airborne microbes, it can be hazardous in occupied indoor spaces. The UVpro offers comparable efficiency without such risks.

In the study, researchers tested the efficacy of far-UVC light in a room-sized chamber with the same ventilation rate as typical indoor spaces. The results were outstanding: the lamps inactivated more than 98% of airborne microbes within just five minutes, and this effect was sustained over time despite continued microbe spraying.

This innovative technology, when combined with Bioabundance's UVpro, provides a level of air cleaning that surpasses traditional ventilation approaches. With the equivalent of 184 air exchanges per hour, the UVpro outperforms other disinfection methods in occupied spaces.

Far-UVC light's advantages extend beyond the current pandemic. It has proven effective against various viruses, including the COVID virus and its variants, as well as influenza and drug-resistant bacteria. Notably, far-UVC technology's mechanism of action prevents microbes from developing resistance, unlike vaccines and drug treatments.

The remarkable potential of Bioabundance's UVpro and far-UVC light offers a beacon of hope in our quest for safer indoor environments. As we continue to adapt and innovate, the integration of the UVpro technology by Bioabundance heralds a brighter future where indoor spaces become sanctuaries of health and well-being.
