Ultraviolet energy at 222 nm is highly effective at eliminating microorganisms. 4-6 log(99.9999%) reduction of bacteria, fungus, and viral phage was observed in multiple third party tests. The 222 nm energy wavelength is 10 to 1,000 times more effective than UV-C (254 nm). The 222 nm wavelength destroys the integrity of microbial cell walls and breaks DNA-related hydrogen bonds of all microbes. A Far-UV Sterilray™ lamp delivers a single-line 222nm wavelength of Far-UV light and has been used effectively on food products, non-critical medical products, surfaces and air. Far-UV Sterilray™ is cost efficient, highly effective at reducing microbial growth, and is not in the region of the UV range that causes sunburn. There are some safety precautions (proper eye protection, etc.) associated with the use of these products until Far-UV Sterilray receives FDA approval to be used on humans. Studies are in progress. The product described uses Far-UV Sterilray™ lamps solely manufactured by High Energy Ozone dba Far-UV Sterilray.(www.sterilray.com) Pathogen Path Consulting LLC (Dover, NH) holds all patents on the Far-UV Sterilray™ Technology.
