Care222 Series, Ushio Europe and UV Medico — Hall 8.0, Booth G31

Care222 ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) lamps utilize krypton chloride UV sources and an optical bandpass filter to generate 222-nm radiation (often called “far UV”) that disrupts the genetic structures of pathogens to render them unable to reproduce or infect. According to Ushio and other researchers, current UV findings show that wavelengths between 200 and 230 nm pose minimal photobiological risks and reduced ozone-generation risk compared to 254-nm UV-C, which cannot be utilized in occupied areas without shielding from the source. The Care222 lamps and UV Medico UV222 fixture will be exhibited at Light+Building.
