Using UVC light, we can sanitize and disinfect many common household, workplace, and PPE items. Here’s how the process works.
Ultraviolet light (UV) falls into three categories, based on their wavelength and energy: A, B, and C. The Teser ACT units create UVC – the only type known to be able to kill microbes. UVC is more effective than Broad Spectrum UV disinfection, and its use saves considerable energy overall for those results.
UVC light (high energy and the shortest wavelength) is absorbed into the cellular structures of microbes, preventing their replication and growth. This energy absorption breaks old cellular bonds in the DNA (particularly in thymine chains), creates mutated combinations, and ultimately deactivates the genetic material necessary for viruses and bacteria to reproduce.
We are headquartered in Calgary and are proud to have brought the best minds of Alberta together to make the TeserACT possible. With a singular focus, we are dedicated to making a difference to the capabilities of Canadian healthcare professionals, and using our western work ethic to make an impact in the fight against COVID-19.
