Constant Wave UV-C is proven to kill known pathogens. Ultraviolet (UV) light is divided into three sub-ranges, A, B, and C. UV-C encompasses the wavelength range 200-280nm and is selectively absorbed by DNA, RNA and proteins of microorganisms. Absorption of UV-C by microorganisms disrupts their DNA/RNA replication process leading to their inactivation*
