UV-C disinfection: Effective for all germs and without the formation of resistance
The development of resistance in germs is a natural process that occurs through the natural selection of bacteria and other microorganisms over time. When bacteria are attacked by antibiotics, disinfectants, or other antimicrobial agents, some bacteria may survive by developing genetic changes through mutations or by exchanging genetic material with other bacteria.
These changes can cause the bacteria to become resistant to certain antibiotics or other antimicrobial agents. If these resistant bacteria are able to survive and multiply, resistance can affect the entire population, reducing the effectiveness of antibiotics or other antimicrobial agents.
Germ resistance is a serious problem because resistant bacteria can be difficult or even impossible to treat. This can lead to serious public health consequences, as infections that were once easily treatable can lead to serious or even fatal diseases.
Therefore, it is of great advantage to be able to prevent the development of resistance with the help of UV-C technology. UV-C disinfection also works when germs have already acquired resistance to conventional disinfection measures such as alcohol, antibiotics, … … UV-C disinfection works on all microorganisms, whether they are common E. coli bacteria, SARS, Legionella or mold.
