CHANDIGARH,17.05.20-The world is not same any more. There are two eras now Pre Corona and Post Corona. The impact of corona virus has made permanent impact on the lifestyle of humans. Now we have started giving more importance to health and hygiene then ever before. In pursue to keep our surrounding clean we have started adopting different types of methods. Be it as basic as cleaning hand with soap or using sophisticated devices like air purifiers. How can we make sure that we are not infected by any virus or bacteria.

There is new buzz in town regarding UV based sanitation. In fact it is not new its just we have started paying attention to it. So what exactly UV is and how does it works. Ultraviolet (UV) light destroys the molecular bonds that hold together the DNA of viruses and bacteria. The UV radiation portion of the electromagnetic spectrum lies approximately between 100 nm and 400 nm in wavelength. [Note: 1 nm = 1 nano-meter = one billionth of a meter.] The UV spectrum has been subdivided into three distinct spectral bands:

UV-A radiation (315 nm to 400 nm), which is called “near UV” and "black light", is the least photo biologically-active, but exposure can produce tanning and some burning of the skin.

UV-B radiation (280 nm to 315 nm), which is called “middle UV” and "erythemal UV",causes skin tanning and “sunburn”, photokeratitis (inflammation of the cornea of the eye).

UV-C radiation (100 nm to 280 nm), which is called “far UV” and "germicidal UV", also causes photokeratitis and photoconjunctivitis, with maximum effects occurring at 270 nm. It is blocked by common glass and by air (for wavelengths < 200 nm).

UV-C light is a particularly good option for sanitation because it kills bacteria regardless of drug resistance and without toxic chemicals. At home methods of UV-C sanitation have been proven highly effective against pathogens. Hospitals have embraced ultraviolet (UV) lights as a cleaning tool for years, using large, industrial-grade machines to decontaminate rooms.

Now, smaller versions of UV sanitation lights are available to consumers looking to clean pretty much anything. Gagandeep Singh from Jay Enterprise with collaboration with Dr Sarabjeet Singh from The Perfect Smile Dental Clinic has developed a range of products that uses UV germicidal properties to disinfect the work areas, home, shops, conference rooms and tools. The product line is available on website These products has be tested and used with very good results. In fact it looks like this new technology will be the new normal. People will soon start realizing the power of UV and take it full benefit through such products.
