Phoseon Technology’s UV LEDs Detect and Disinfect

Intense, Cool, and Long-Lived, UV LEDs Outshine UV Lamps, May Brighten Imaging Applications

Biomolecular contaminants dislike the spotlight, especially if it’s an ultraviolet (UV) spotlight. So, biomolecular contaminants must really hate the intense glare from decontamination systems that use UV light-emitting diodes (LEDs). One of these systems recently demonstrated that it can irreversibly inactivate RNase A—a pervasive contaminant in RNA sequencing and analysis labs.

Decontamination systems are hardly the only systems taking advantage of UV LED technology. By incorporating UV LED technology, chromatography/spectroscopy instruments are sharpening their detection capabilities, and sterilization systems are boosting their germicidal powers.
