Spectro-UV DeGerm-inator Portable UV Sanitizer (Model #UV-5D)
The UV-5D UV Sanitizer features a powerful germicidal, short-wave UV (254nm) tube.
The DeGERM-inator™ (UV-5D) portable ultraviolet sanitizer uses the short-wave UV (germicidal) method of deactivating and killing microbes, which has been recommended for over 50 years by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. For added safety, the DeGERM-inator lamp features a unique child-safety switch to prevent accidental UV exposure.
To kill most microorganisms, simply turn on the DeGERM-inator, and
shine the short-wave UV (254nm) light on any nonporous surface for
6 to 8 seconds*
Made of a rugged engineering polymer that is shock-proof and impact-resistant.
Pocket-sized. Lamps are 8 7/8 inches (22.3 cm) long and weigh only
10 1/4 oz (290 g). They can be conveniently carried in a purse, briefcase or
auto glove compartment! Works on four AA alkaline batteries or AC power. Comes complete with a nylon travel pouch, carrying strap, and AC adapter.
WHY SHOULD I USE THE DEGERM-INATOR?
Antibacterial chemicals, soaps, detergents, lotions, and creams can lose their sanitizing properties when overused, according to medical experts. This increases the danger of developing super-bacteria that are resistant to conventional antibiotics. You can avoid this health risk by using the DeGERM-inator.
