Lume's ultraviolet-C light technology

Attacking Viral DNA

Ultraviolet light comes in 3 types: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-C is deadly to germs, bacteria, and viruses because it resonates at a specific frequency that is disruptive to their DNA.  Lume uses this exact technology through 2 high-powered 254nm UV-C bulbs to inhibit viruses, bacteria, and other infectious pests all within the safety of our device.
