The BioShift UV-C Chamber is an eco-friendly and cost-effective tool that uses ultraviolet C (UV-C) light santitation to inactivate viruses and other pathogens. The BioShift chamber’s UV-C light fixes key vulnerabilities found on everyday items like cell phones, keyboards and more by eliminating the pathogen’s ability to multiply and spread disease.
Easy to use - Before entering a bio-secure area, simply place your items into the BioShift chamber through the “street” or dirty side. Then, after exposing the items to UV-C light for a recommended time of five minutes, they can be removed on the “bio-secure” or clean side
Adaptable design - The BioShift UV-C Chamber is available in a small and large size, with various door configurations. The small chamber is ideal for small-scale use, limiting the import of pathogens through everyday items like cell phones, food, eyeglasses and tools, while the large chamber is great for facilities or entrances with a higher volume of people coming and going every single day.
How it works - There are two factors that directly influence the effectiveness of UV-C disinfection: time of exposure and UV-C radiance (intensity). Testing by a nationally recognized laboratory specializing in antimicrobial, biocidal and viricidal effectiveness showed that five minutes of exposure to UV-C radiation in the BioShift chamber resulted in the elimination of >99.99% of common viruses and bacteria. In laboratory testing, Signify’s UV-C light sources inactivated 99% of SARSCoV-2 virus on asurface with an exposure time of 6 seconds.
The table below shows the effectiveness of a typical five-minute exposure in the BioShift chambers and the minimum dose (mJ/cm2) to inactivate 99.99% of a selected group of bacterias and viruses.
