Xinofei and Boston University confirm that their UV-C ultraviolet light source can effectively inhibit the new coronavirus


Xinofei announced that in its joint research with the National Laboratory for New Infectious Diseases (NEIDL) at Boston University, Xinofei's UV-C ultraviolet light source can effectively inactivate the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that causes 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19).


At the beginning of the outbreak, Dr. Anthony Griffiths, an associate professor of medical microbiology at Boston University, and his team began to develop equipment to study the virus. ²


In the study, they used Xinnuofei's UV-C ultraviolet light source products to explore the ability of different doses of UV-C ultraviolet radiation to inactivate viruses on the surface of inoculated materials. The research team used a radiation dose of 5 millijoules per square centimeter (mJ/cm²) (irradiation time 6 seconds) and successfully inactivated 99% of the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Based on this data, a radiation dose of 22 millijoules per square centimeter (mJ/cm²) (irradiation time 25 seconds) can inactivate 99.9999 percent of the new coronavirus. ³


Our experimental results show that the virus can be completely inactivated after a certain dose of UV-C ultraviolet radiation for a few seconds.


Dr. Anthony Griffiths said, "We are very excited about this discovery and hope to accelerate the research and development of related products to inhibit the spread of 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19)."


Xinofei is a leader in the field of UV-C UV light sources, with more than 35 years of experience and continuous development of UV technology. The company has detailed data and successful cases to prove its innovation ability in the field of UV-C ultraviolet lighting. All products are designed, produced and used to the highest safety standards.


"I am very pleased to see the fruitful results of this collaboration with Boston University on the fight against the novel coronavirus. Boston University has confirmed that Xinofei UV light source products are effective in suppressing the virus and helping businesses and factories provide a safe working environment." Xin Nuofei CEO Hong Anli (Eric Rondolat) said,


In view of the great potential of this technology to fight the new coronavirus, Xinofei promised to share it widely with other lighting companies. In order to meet the rapidly growing market demand, we will further increase the production capacity of related products in the coming months.
