Harness the Power of UV-C Light to Sanitize Devices and Destroy Illness-Causing Germs

You may be wondering, what is UV light? Ultraviolet (UV) light is a type of electromagnetic radiation that comes from the sun and is invisible to the human eye. It has shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies than visible light. UV light is divided into three categories based on wavelength – UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C.

UV-C light has the shortest wavelength and highest frequency of UV rays. It is considered “germicidal UV” because it can damage the DNA and RNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, rendering them unable to replicate and cause disease. This makes UV-C extremely effective at sanitizing surfaces and neutralizing airborne microbes.

The Powerful Sterilizing Properties of UV-C

UV-C light has been used as a sterilizer for decades. It’s a proven way to sanitize drinking water, sterilize medical equipment, cure polymers, and more. When UV-C light penetrates the cell walls of microorganisms, it damages their DNA and prevents them from multiplying. This ability makes UV-C light lethal for many viruses, bacteria, and molds.

UV-C sanitization systems are often used in healthcare to sanitize entire rooms to prevent the spread of pathogens like influenza, tuberculosis, and viruses that cause common colds and more serious illnesses. Hospitals have utilized UV-C technology in operating rooms to sterilize equipment and air. Using UV-C light is an incredibly effective sanitization method, and many systems are effective at killing up to 99.9% of germs in just minutes or less.

With proper safety precautions, UVC light can be a chemical-free, eco-friendly way to sanitize both air and surfaces. Proper shielding prevents damage to eyes and skin. When the power of UVC light is harnessed correctly, it provides an incredibly effective method to eradicate illness-causing germs. Investing in UVC sanitization systems can help create healthier environments and stop the spread of infections.

The Rise of UV-C for Sanitizing Mobile Devices and High-Touch Surfaces

With the increase in antibiotic-resistant “superbugs,” hospitals have been battling hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) spread through surface and contact contamination. Mobile phones and other handheld electronics are prime culprits. In a study evaluating the microbial contamination of health care workers’ found that 97.8% of healthcare workers’ phones harbored dangerous pathogens, including MRSA and C. diff.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the use of UV-C sanitizing systems has expanded beyond hospitals to schools, offices, restaurants, and anywhere else people handle shared mobile devices. UV-C is the optimal sanitization method for phones, tablets, high-touch items, POS systems, and any electronics that pass between multiple users. Just minutes of UV-C exposure can decontaminate surfaces and protect public health.

Seal Shield’s UV-C Solutions for Total Sanitization

A chart comparing Seal Shield’s ElectroClave to the CleanSlate UV Vital

Seal Shield offers two innovative UV-C sanitizing systems designed specifically for electronics and high-touch items – the patented CleanSlate Vital UV-C sanitization system and the ElectroClave™360-degree UV-C sanitization system. Both sanitization systems have a fully enclosed sterilizing chamber, so UV exposure is completely controlled. This protects the eyes and skin while providing hospital-grade sanitization.

Seal Shield’s ElectroClave UV-C Sanitization System

The ElectroClave by Seal Shield is a UV-C sanitization system that can be used to disinfect mobile devices like cell phones, tablets, hospital badges, tags, glasses, and other items. It uses 360-degree shadowless LED UV-C light to sanitize items placed inside the unit without causing any damage the surface or functionality – unlike mercury bulbs which harm plastics and OLED screens after elongated or frequent exposure. The ElectroClave™ is ideal for hospitals and anywhere where large quantities of electronics and equipment that need to be sanitized regularly.

The ElectroClave comes in 2, 3, or 4-bay configurations to hold multiple devices at once for efficient sanitization. Each bay is sized to fit most mobile electronics. To use the unit, devices are placed inside the bays and when the door is closed, the sanitization cycle automatically begins. The sanitization cycle is 1 minute long. During the cycle, the UV-C LEDs emit germicidal light on all surfaces of the device. The ElectroClave is 99.9% effective against: Staphylococcus, Escherichia coli, MRSA and CRE on hard, non-porous surfaces.

The ElectroClave is effective against common healthcare pathogens like Staphylococcus, E.Coli, MRSA, and CRE on hard, non-porous surfaces. It provides a chemical-free way to sanitize electronics between uses without any wear and tear. The LED UV-C bulbs last for 2,000 hours before needing replacement.

The ElectroClave has smart features for maintenance and compliance monitoring. Usage data can be sent to inboxes and the cloud. Device tracking, sanitization logs, and scheduling of services can be automated. Optional RFID tags provide real-time tracking of devices. These features allow users to ensure proper sanitization protocols are being followed across their organization.

Overall, the ElectroClave delivers an intelligent solution for UV-C sanitization and management of shared mobile devices in healthcare, education, enterprise, and other fields. The automated process makes it easy to regularly sanitize electronics to prevent the spread of pathogens.

Seal Shield’s CleanSlate Vital UV-C Sanitization System

The CleanSlate UV-C sanitization system provides a 20 second sanitization cycle that inactivates >99.9% of bacteria (including C. Diff and MRSA) and viruses. It’s an extremely fast and effective way to sanitize shared devices. The CleanSlate uses mercury bulbs that emit UV-C that inactivates bacteria. Common places the CleanSlate sanitization device are used is in hospitals, especially in NICU, airports, and science labs. A nurse, patient, visitors, students, and traveler can sanitize their phone before entering various places where hygiene is a priority. The CleanSlate is recommended for public facing areas due to its simplicity, quickness, and the fact that it is mercury bulb-based.

With CleanSlate, you can check the data on our app and website on the usage of the CleanSlate. You can see how many cycles a device has been sanitized throughout the day which is useful to see if the machine is in an accessible place where users can access.

Both Seal Shield solutions provide quick, chemical-free, eco-friendly sanitization. Utilizing UV-C light is the safest, most efficient way to sanitize the germ-ridden mobile devices and devices we all use every day.
