UV-5ND

Dual-Wavelength Ultraviolet Inspection/Disinfection Lamp

The Easy, Modern Way to Protect Yourself and Your Family’s Health in the Workplace, at Home and When Traveling

The Spectroline® UV-5ND ultraviolet lamp produces both filtered long-wave UV (365nm) and nonfiltered germicidal short-wave UV (254nm) light in a lightweight, easy-to-use unit.

The UV-5ND provides 4 to 6 hours of use on four 1.5-volt AA alkaline batteries (not included), or unlimited use when powered by an AC adapter (included).

For maximum protection, the UV-5ND is equipped with a child-resistant activator switch. For added convenience, the lamp comes complete with a nylon travel pouch.

Where to Buy

USE LONG-WAVE UV TO:

INSPECT bathrooms and restrooms, bedrooms, telephones and cell phones, work surfaces, computer keyboards, kitchen surfaces and utensils, gym equipment, lounges, pool areas, etc.

DETECT urine and other body fluids, food stains, bacterial growths, mold growths, food spoilage, rodent contamination and other unsanitary conditions.

USE SHORT-WAVE UV TO:

DISINFECT disease transfer points (such as doorknobs, toilet seats and flush handles, sinks, faucets, telephones and cell phones, computer keyboards, etc.), food preparation surfaces and utensils, gym equipment, showers and saunas, and many other nonporous surfaces.

KILL most harmful germs, bacteria and viruses in seconds.

WHY USE THE SPECTROLINE® UV-5ND LAMP?

Ultraviolet visual inspection uses long-wave UV light to detect and reveal previously invisible soils, contamination and microbial growths, where disease-causing bacteria and viruses can breed. While this UV light is invisible to the eye, many contaminants can readily be seen by the fluorescent glow that is often left behind by improper cleaning.

Ultraviolet disinfection uses short-wave UV (germicidal) light to kill germs, bacteria and viruses on points of contact. Using shortwave UV to deactivate microorganisms has been studied extensively since the 1930s. The UV-5ND is particularly effective in deactivating microbes because the 254 nanometer (nm) wavelength it produces is almost the exact frequency at which the maximum damage to the nucleic acids in a pathogen’s DNA occurs. Damaging the DNA causes the organism to die. Some viruses and microorganisms are more susceptible than others to short-wave UV light, so the amount of UV needed to deactivate them can vary considerably.
