COVID-19

MoonBeam3 is built and tested for Healthcare-associated infection reduction; third-party antimicrobial effectiveness tested on a broad range of pathogens INCLUDING enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.  

UV-C in the 254-nanometer germicidal spectrum is effective on enveloped and non-enveloped viruses. COVID-19 is an enveloped virus – that is, the outer layer is a lipid membrane which is taken from the host cell in which the virus multiplies. SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) belongs to the beta CoVs category. These types have a round or elliptic and often pleomorphic form, and a diameter of approximately 60–140 nm. Like other CoVs, it is sensitive to ultraviolet rays and heat. Coronavirus is highly susceptible to germicidal UV irradiation. 

The table below shows that the susceptibility of coronavirus to UV is greater than 3 times compared to the influenza (common cold) virus:

As an adjunct to wipes and chemical cleaning, MoonBeam3 technology is extremely effective with >4 log reductions verified. MoonBeam3 tests on non-enveloped and enveloped viruses including coxsackieviruses, rotavirus, or poliovirus documented high-log reduction.
