Ask Rick: What is UVC?

Q.  What is UVC? UVC is a type of ultraviolet (UVC) energy in the 260-nanometer frequency.  The “C” wavelength is the most germicidal in the UVC spectrum. UVC penetrates the outer structure of the cell and alters the DNA molecule, preventing replication and causing cell death. The UVC energy kills or inactivates microbes, eradicating surface… Read more »
