Hubbell Lighting's SpectraClean Visible Light Disinfection Technology


 Hubbell Lighting announced  it has commercially launched a series of visible light disinfection SpectraClean™ luminaires to the market. These luminaires leverage developments in the disciplines of lighting science and microbiology to combine white and narrowband 405 nanometer (“nm”) visible light to meet ambient and task lighting requirements while providing a continuous, unobtrusive disinfection option for commercial applications.

The germicidal effects of narrowband visible light suppress a wide range of bacteria, molds, fungi and yeast. The antimicrobial light from SpectraClean induces the production of damaging reactive oxygen species in harmful microorganisms to accelerate cell inactivation.

Antimicrobial disinfection through illumination is proven effective with proper dosage levels on pathogens suspended in air or attached to a variety of surfaces, materials and objects.  SpectraClean resides outside the UV spectrum and will not damage non-harmful plant and animal cells or degrade inanimate materials.
