UVSheltron develops and manufactures products that perform Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI). UVGI uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their RNA/DNA leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UV-C disinfection relies on radiation emitted in the wavelength range of 250 nm to 280 nm to inactivate pathogens. UV-C light kills over one hundred types of harmful microorganisms (including coronavirus) and also stops viral/bacterial reproduction.
