Use Form Cure to Sterilize phone


#1

Just asking, does anyone think this would be a good or bad idea? They have UV phone sterilizers on Amazon, but I have this machine sitting at home… Any thoughts?

Sorry, I don’t think that’ll work as I’m pretty sure you need UVC (shorter wavelength & higher energy) for sterilising.

Micro-organisms are deactivated by UV-C radiation. The radiation (optimal wavelength 254 nm) is absorbed by the cellular RNA and DNA and thus their nucleic acids are damaged. New bonds are formed between neighboring nucleotides, which in turn creates double bonds or dimers.
As a result, the replication and infection ability of bacteria and viruses is prevented.

The Form Cure wavelength of 405nm is not strictly part of the UV light spectrum. Viruses or bacteria cannot be impressed by the violet light.
