Underlying Technology

SteriDesign products utilize part of the ultraviolet light spectrum (UV-C) that is effective against pathogenic microorganisms. The anti-microbial properties of the UV-C light spectrum are well known and have been used for over 100 years to kill germs. The UV-C light spectrum of 200-280 nanometers is highly effective yet safe and invisible to the human eye. SteriDesign has created new way to harness the power of UV-C light into a simple yet effective technology.

When organisms are exposed to the SteriDesign UV light spectrum (known as “germicidal UV”) it disrupts the cell wall causing lysis. In bacteria, this will destroy the DNA, rendering these organisms unable to reproduce so they become non-pathogenic.
