Phoseon Technology, Hillsboro, Ore., is utilizing its patented semiconductor light matrix (SLM) technology and proprietary thermal management system to achieve a breakthrough level of deep-UV irradiance targeted at disinfection and decontamination life science applications.
This is said to be the first 275nm UV LED disinfection system that surpasses 5 W/cm², which is significantly higher than the 0.3 W/cm² levels reached by other technologies in the market.
Phoseon’s SLM technology offers deep UV irradiance, which enable significant process improvements in life sciences, including faster analysis and operations and increased capabilities for disinfection and decontamination applications that require low wavelengths.
High irradiance, combined with appropriate wavelengths, targets specific bonds in DNA, RNA and proteins within microorganisms and biomolecules. This allows shorter inactivation times while improving overall efficacy of the disinfection. The high absolute irradiance of these new solutions enable high-throughput processes in sequencing, air handling and manufacturing facilities.
