Prolonged, direct exposure to UV–C light can cause temporary skin redness and eye irritation but does not cause skin cancer or cataracts. If your skin is exposed to direct germicidal light, it can harm your skin. If your eyes are exposed, it can feel dry or gritty. But, contrary to common belief, germicidal lamps do not cause any permanent damage to your health.

UV–C light sanitizes only surfaces that it comes into contact with during radiation. It cannot penetrate opaque, solid objects. You can sanitize a wide variety of food items and daily essentials including milk packets, groceries, vegetables, fruits, kitchen utensils, bottles, baby care products, toys, keys, remote controls, clothes, slippers and many more.
Its beneficial to use UV-C light for food sanitization as it does not leave any residue chemicals in treated food and proves lethal to a majority of germs (viruses, bacteria, and fungi).
Yes, all electronic devices can be disinfected using SafeQube.
No, UV-C light may cause structural changes in the medicines which may alter the drug composition. It’s not recommended to use SafeQube for sterilizing medicines.
Yes. SafeQube helps reduce surface to human infection in hospitals and laboratories. Healthcare teams can use our sterilization boxes available in varying capacities to decontaminate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including N95 Mask, eye Goggles, face shields for reuse.
Our highly reflective chamber can also support flash sterilization of medical equipment and parts to prevent surface to human transmission from intubation tube and other reusable inventory in hospitals.
The long-term exposure of UV–C light will shorten the shelf life of plastics. Plants can be damaged by direct, or reflected, germicidal ultraviolet rays. Transient dyes and colours may fade from prolonged exposure to UV-C light.
A disinfection cycle for a duration of 10 minutes is sufficient enough to sanitize and disinfect all objects. However, it depends on the object being placed for disinfection.
The germicidal activity is maximum at 253.7 nm of UV-C light radiation.
Cleaning is not required after every usage. The whole chamber including the surfaces and UV-C lamps should be cleaned every month.
UV-C lamps have a lifespan of 11,000 hours or 12 months. It’s generally recommended to change the UV-C lamps after the recommended period. However, it will last for many years when used for 1 hour or less during daily usage.
