The Efficacy of VUV Light Disinfection of Common Environmental Pathogens

“The duration of VUV treatment required for valid germicidal result of most of the bacteria was ≤10 min while MTB needed about 30 min. 20 min was adequate for the influenza viruses. This indicated that VUV light is an effective approach against different environmental and pathogenic microorganisms, and can potentially be used for air-purifying units in future ventilation systems.”
