UV Disinfectant Wand
The Jacuzzi® UV Wand Disinfects 99.9% of germs, bacteria, and viruses within seconds.
Absorption by proteins can lead to rupture of cell walls and the death of the organism. Absorption by DNA or RNA (specifically by thymine bases) is known to cause inactivation of the DNA or RNA double helix strands through the formation of thymine dimers. If enough of these dimers are created in DNA, the DNA replication process is disrupted, and the cell cannot replicate.
It is widely accepted that it is not necessary to kill pathogens with UV light, but rather apply enough UV light to prevent the organism from replicating.
UV-C has been proven to kill several strands of viruses (below are research studies demonstrating the effectiveness of UV-C light on SARS and MERS).
