We help businesses of all types kill viruses through UV light disinfection. Our patent pending UVPhasor® uses UVC radiation to take out viruses before they can make people sick.

Health and safety are important for everyone inside your building. We help you keep people safe through our advanced technology for indoor air disinfection, including killing viruses that cause illness.

Some common viruses that spread through the air include:

  • COVID-19
  • Influenza
  • Measles
  • Chickenpox
  • Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
  • Rhinovirus

How Does a Virus Work?

How Does a Virus WorkDespite what you might think, viruses aren’t actually living organisms. They are essentially clumps of DNA or RNA encased in proteins. Since they’re not alive, their ability to reproduce depends on suitable cells in a suitable human host then bumping into it. Just any cell won’t work.

Viruses spread by latching onto and hijacking suitable living cells and, from there, they take over the cell and replicate thousands of times ultimately killing the cell. When this happens multiple times, you are infected.

People infected with a virus can spread it in many ways. One especially effective way for viruses to spread is through respiratory droplets that become aerosolized when someone coughs, sneezes, or simply breathes. These virus particles then enter the air and can infect anyone who inhales.

As you can see, this is why viruses can spread so quickly anywhere. This is particularly true because HVAC systems recirculate air that may be contaminated with viruses.

Since viruses aren’t really alive, you technically can’t kill them. Instead, you must try to damage their DNA or RNA, which means that they can’t replicate. So, when you say you’re killing a virus, what you really mean is you’re inactivating them by blocking their replication.

There are a few different ways to inactivate a virus. One is through harsh chemicals that frequently release vapors that are also hazardous to human health and can make people sick. A better way is to irradiate them with the right UV light thus breaking them.

Your Space, Made Safe with Farlite™

UV Light Disinfection Inactivates Aerosolized Viruses

We use UV light to inactivate viruses and other pathogens. Our UVPhasor® make the right kind of UV light to break pathogens.

UVPhasor® from Farlite™ emit powerful UVC radiation which damages the DNA or RNA of the virus. This effectively breaks the virus so it cannot reproduce. Pathogens can’t develop a resistance to this process because it attacks their physical nature.

That’s why proper UV lamps within the UVPhasor® are an effective, safe way to promote healthy spaces for your business. This is why the UVPhasor® is the right choice.
