Ultraviolet C radiation is effective in inactivating SARS-CoV-2 on glass surfaces, a study finds

Dr. Sanchari Sinha Dutta, Ph.D., at reports a team of scientists from the Texas Biomedical Research Institute and UV Innovators, Inc., USA, recently developed an ultraviolet C radiation emitting device called NuvaWave, which is capable of inactivating severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) on glass surfaces within seconds. The study is currently available on the bioRxiv* preprint server. Schematic representation of the workflow. SARS-CoV-2 was placed on the chambered glass slide, dried for 1 hour at room temperature, and then exposed to UVC light radiation using the NuvaWave device for 1, 2, 4 and 8 seconds. No UVC light…
