UVC Sensors to Monitor Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI)


The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has severely stressed the worldwide healthcare system and has created dangerous shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks, gowns, and gloves. In an effort to extend inventory, healthcare institutions and emergency responder organizations have instituted decontamination procedures involving the delivery of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI).

PPE decontamination procedures require accurate dosing UVC energy to inactivate pathogens while maintaining the integrity of the PPE materials. The most effective UVGI methods employ UVC sensors to ensure the exposure levels of materials during sterilization are both achieved and maintained.
