UVC Detector Used in Medical Field
Ultraviolet sterilization is currently one of the most commonly used sterilization methods in the medical field, which greatly promotes the medical use of ultraviolet sterilization lamps. However, there are also standards for the use of ultraviolet lamps. The state stipulates that the intensity of newly manufactured 30W lamps must be ≥90μW / cm² and lamps with radiation intensity lower than 70 μW / cm² must be replaced. So how to monitor whether the UV disinfection lamp in use is up to standard? UVC detectors can help us with this.
UVC detector is an instrument used to monitor the irradiation intensity of ultraviolet lamps. Linshang Technology has developed a very comprehensive UV intensity monitoring equipment. If the UV light source on the production line has UVA and UVC, you can use the LS125 UV intensity meter. If the UVA band light source is an LED, you can choose a UVA LED probe. By comparing the test results, you can know the use and application effect of the UV lamp and determine whether it needs to be replaced in time.
The application scenarios of the UVC detector in the medical field are described below.
1. UVC detector helps judge the sterilization effect
The most widely known effect of ultraviolet light is sterilization. When bacteria's nucleic acid absorbs ultraviolet light, DNA replication is affected and biological activity changes. As a result, the bacteria mutate or die and play a bactericidal role. At the same time, when ultraviolet rays pass through the air, the oxygen in the air is ionized to generate ozone, which strengthens the bactericidal effect. The use of ultraviolet rays for sterilization has an important role in cleaning the ward, maintaining the sterile environment of the operating room and maintaining the operating conditions. Among them, the ultraviolet rays required by hospitals are often created by special ultraviolet lamps to meet the conditions. The intensity of the ultraviolet lamp can be used to know whether the ultraviolet lamps have met the requirements and provide a basis for better use. Generally, the hospital disinfects with 250-270nm ultraviolet light, but ultraviolet light less than 290nm will be harmful to the human body. Through the detection result of the UVC detector, the ultraviolet intensity can be controlled in time to reduce the harm to the human body.
2. UVC detector helps analyze medical experiments
Ultraviolet light can affect the activity in the body and change the genetic composition. In medical experiments, this property of ultraviolet light is used to modify polymer materials. Detection can help create qualified reactants and promote the development of the pharmaceutical industry. It can also be used in clinical scientific experiments to determine the survival of the virus in the patient and provide guidance for the next treatment plan. 365nm UV lamps are commonly used in laboratories to test how fluorescent products are produced and 254nm UV lamps are commonly used to detect whether products have dark spots. These demanding scientific experiments all require UVC detector to assist. By using an UVC detector with a digital display UV probe, the real-time display intensity is detected and the accuracy is improved.
The use of UVC detectors has promoted the improvement of disinfection technology and disinfection management in medical institutions and also provided assistance for better clinical research.
