UVC Antiviral Air Disinfection Panels units are designed to prevent and reduce the spread of airborne infectious and harmful microorganisms by destroying their DNA and RNA with ultraviolet (UV) lights and HEPA filter technology.
Bacteria and viruses proliferate by cell division based on genetic information to cause infection and illness. DNA and RNA holds the genetic information necessary for this proliferation to occur.
Irradiating with UVC changes the helix structure of DNA and RNA of held by bacteria and viruses, which can inactivate these bacteria and viruses in reducing their proliferation.
HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air and refers to filters made in accordance with specific requirements. HEPA filters are mechanical filters with a capacity for sifting small particles at a much higher rate than any other conventional filter.
What’s important about HEPA filters is they’re incredibly effective at capturing almost every size of particle. They can capture viruses, bacteria, pollen, PM2.5, allergens,etc.
