Mexico. For decades, broad-spectrum ultraviolet light oscillating at a wavelength of between 200 and 400 nanometers is highly effective at killing bacteria and viruses by destroying the molecular bonds that hold their DNA together. UV light is routinely used to decontaminate surgical equipment.
Asahi Ingeniería has created an integral solution with the LD OMRON® mobile robot, which will revolutionize the way of disinfecting areas such as Hospitals, Offices, Factories, Hotels, Shops, Schools, among others.
How does ultraviolet light radiation help as a method of inactivation?
- Ultraviolet light in the spectrum of 100 to 280 nm disintegrates the DNA / RNA of the virus, bacteria or fungus, deactivating its effect.
- The microorganism, when damaged by UV light, cannot multiply.
Why use a mobile robot to sanitize?
The use of robots is ideal to prevent humans from being exposed to ultraviolet light since it causes irritation to the eyes and skin, in prolonged exposure it can cause serious damage to health.
