UV-C light

The UV-C light is the smaller wavelength light among all UV types, that damages the DNA and RNA of microorganisms. As a result, bacteria, viruses and fungi can no longer replicate and, as a result, they die. Ultraviolet is an electromagnetic radiation that falls just outside the human spectrum. The wavelength of ultraviolet radiation is between 100 and 400 nanometers (nm). At 253.7 nm, the UVC light is most effective against viruses and bacteria. The gako UV-C sterilizers devices operate at this precise frequency.

Gako uses UV-C lamps that are located inside the devices, therefore are so-called “contained UV-C light”. The leakage of the UV-C radiation is very low or non-existent (≤5 µW/cm2), therefore they are safe for use in areas where people are present. In addition, only ozone-free halogen lamps are used, meaning that additional pollution caused by an increase in ozone levels in the room air is thus avoided.

Advantages of UVC disinfection:

  • Simple and safe
  • Disinfect without chemicals
  • Viruses / Bacteria do not become resistant
  • Effective in milliseconds
  • Low operating costs
  • Scientifically proven effectiveness of UV-C light:



    The killing of microorganisms by UV-C light (wavelength 253.7nm) has been known for more than 20 years and is scientifically proven.

    Current studies have independently shown the effectiveness of UV-C light:

    Rapid and complete inactivation of SARS-CoV-2-by ultraviolet-C irradiation:

    Boston University School of Medicine

    Rapid and efficient inactivation of surface dried SARS-CoV-2 by UV-C irradiation:

    Universitätsklinikum Tübingen

    UV-C radiation is highly effective in inactivating and inhibiting SARS-COV-2 replication:

    University of Milan and INAF
