Pulsed light disinfection: why do we have to keep the germs is sterile water?

Date : Publié par
The VDMA [1] specifies in its practice code, which allows to test the efficiency of the sterilisation devices on packaging, that the inoculums should be prepared without salt. Indeed during the drying of the inoculums the presence of salt forms like a protective layer on it and it has an important impact on the decontamination results.

History of Pulsed Light for Sterilization

Bedford (1927) and Gates (1929) were among the first to scientifically quantified the bactericidal action of UV. Today, UV light performed by mercury lamps at 254 nm is a well-established sterilization technique for surfaces and water [1]. However, the ability of some microorganisms to repair the DNA damage caused by UV light at low doses was a first limit of the mercury lamp. Secondly, if mercury bulbs break, dangerous mercury vapor may be released.

The alternative ? A lamp filled with inert gas, able to generate intense short pulse of UV light...

Xenon Flashlamp for UV disinfection - basic knowledge

Flashlamps are gas discharge devices filled with xenon gas and designed to produce pulsed radiation (from UV to IR). Flashlamp offers high efficiency and long lifetime (considering the lamp parameters). Flashlamp could be found in many sizes and shapes. The typical range of the plasma size is 20 to 250 mm but it could be higher with a competitive electronic !
