There are three UV light wavelength categories: UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. The UV-C
wavelength is the germicidal wavelength. UV-C utilizes short-wavelength
ultraviolet radiation (shorter than UV-B and UV-A which are NOT
germicidal) that is harmful to micro-organisms. This light is effective
in destroying nucleic acids and breaking apart germ DNA. With their DNA
broken, they can't function or reproduce and the organism dies. A brief
look at history shows that UV-C sanitizing has been an accepted
practice since the mid-20th century. In fact, the 1903 Nobel Prize for
Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for his use of UV against
tuberculosis. It has been used primarily in medical sanitation and sterile work facilities, but more recently has been applied to small appliances and used in many industries that require sterilization such as dental, beauty, nail, and aquatic.
