The Power of Pulsed Light
Infectious diseases are a significant concern for the safety of people around the world. All microorganisms, with the exception of Mad Cow Disease, contain DNA. Pulsed Light from XENON deactivates DNA by photochemical, photothermal and photophysical methods. Classified as a sterilization agent, and determined by the FDA to be safe for the treatment of foods, Pulsed Light energy is delivered with instantaneous power of several megawatts. This results in rapid inactivation of microorganisms, including fungal yeasts and molds, bacteria, rickettsiae, myco-plasma, and viruses.
Applications: Food conveyors, food decontamination, food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, clean rooms, pass-throughs, barrier isolation and more.
