UV Light Chart

UVA: sun tanning, testing, inspection, insect traps, stage effects, blacklight, phototherapy* (315-400nm)
UVB: sun burning, inspection, analysis, testing, phototherapy* (280-360nm)
UVC: germicidal (253.7nm), ozone producing (185nm)
UV-C light is germicidal – i.e., it deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses
and other pathogens and destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease.
Specifically, UV-C light causes damage to the nucleic acid of microorganisms by
forming covalent bonds between certain adjacent bases in the DNA. The formation of
such bonds prevent the DNA from being unzipped for replication, and the organism is
unable to reproduce. In fact, when the organism tries to replicate, it dies.
