How does the PURO UV lighting disinfection system work?

All our PURO UV Disinfecting Lighting products, powered by Violet Defense® technology, represent a significant breakthrough in viral and germicidal protection for wherever people gather. PURO™ Lighting uses a powerful, broad-spectrum light, including germicidal UV-C, UV-B and bactericidal UV-A to optimize their efficiency on both surfaces and airborne particles.

Specifically, UV-C has the ability to kill bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus.

UV-A and UV-B light induces oxidation of proteins and lipids causing cell death.

Broadband UV lamps have also been shown to inhibit photo-reactivation, the process that can result in self-repair of damaged microbes. Utilizing the full spectrum of UV light (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C) destroys the DNA, RNA and cell wall of the pathogen, rendering it unable to reproduce.
