A team of scientists at Virginia Tech tested how well the LiteSheet LED UV-C Disinfecting Cabinet eliminates the virus that causes COVID-19 on surfaces at medical facilities and found it to be highly effective, reports LEDs Magazine.
“We tested the capacity of SARS-CoV-2 to infect cells after a 15-minute incubation within the LiteSheet UV-C cabinet or outside of the cabinet. We found that the level of infectious SARS-CoV-2 on a surface was reduced by 99.95% after 15 minutes in the cabinet,” says Dr. Nisha Duggal, Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Sciences and Pathobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine.
