What is UV-C disinfection?

Germicidal UV-C disinfection is where Ultraviolet light of a short wavelength (254nm) is emitted to inactivate/kill microorganisms by destroying their nucleic acids, which dismantles their RNA and DNA, therefore destroying their structures, the building blocks of their existence and neutralising them. This is also known as Germicidal Ultraviolet (GUV). The inactivation of a pathogen is virtually instant upon exposure.
