ams OSRAM’s high and low power UV-C LEDs can effectively inactivate SARS-CoV-2

  • UV-C LEDs such as the Oslon UV 3636 from ams OSRAM inactivate up to 99.99 percent of viruses at a dose of 3,6 mJ/cm²
  • Even at very low intensities SARS-CoV-2 virus can be inactivated effectively which allows more efficient system designs for e.g. air disinfection systems
  • The UV-C radiation damages the nucleic acid (DNA or RNA) within the virus and therefore not only works for SARS-CoV-2, but independently from the variant
