UV light is an effective disinfectant for killing household germs and viruses. However, not all the ‘purple lights’ are effective in killing germs.
There are different types of UV sanitizing boxes in the market. Do you know whether these UV sanitizing boxes can effectively kill germs? In the following, we would like to test the performance of the Lexuma XGerm Series.
UV-C lights are able to kill germs and viruses in certain minutes. When you are purchasing the UV sanitizing box, you need to make sure it is using UV-C lights. If not, germs and viruses cannot be killed.
If you want to test whether the UV sanitizing box you have bought is able to kill germs, you can buy the UV light fast check testing paper to check whether the UV-C lights produced is up to standard.
(The UV Light Intensity Test Paper)
The 4 models of XGerm Series have been tested with the UV light fast check testing paper. The purpose of this test is to indicate whether the UV-C light released by the models of XGerm Series is up to the UV light intensity standard or not. According to the instruction of the UV light testing paper, the UV light intensity of a new UV lamp should be equal or greater than 90 μW/cm2; For the used UV lamp, the UV light intensity should be equal or greater than 70 μW/cm2.
Before we tested the UV sanitizing boxes, we should turn them on for 5 minutes first. Then, put the UV light fast check testing paper into the UV sanitizing box and turn it on. After 1 minute, stop the UV sanitizing process and take it out.
Since all the XGerm Series used for testing are already used for more than one time, the UV light intensity is over than 70 μW/cm2 is enough to meet the standard. We can see the result below which the square in the center turned purple. Most of them are dark purple, only XGerm is a bit light in color. As a result, all the models of XGerm Series can meet the UV light intensity test.
There are lots of UV sanitizing boxes in the market which some of them are not using UV-C lights. It cannot help you to kill germs and viruses on your everyday items. Even some of them are able to produce UV-C lights, they cannot kill germs and viruses if they cannot meet the UV intensity Standard.

The UV light fast check testing paper is only a reference for you. It cannot reflect the whole performance of killing germs and viruses. You should refer to the lab report from the seller about the detailed performance in disinfection. If the seller cannot provide the lab report, it is not recommended to buy the product.
