THE POWER OF UVGI DISINFECTION TO INACTIVATES MICROBES
UV light in the wavelength range from 200 to 300 nm has a disinfecting effect. It is absorbed by the DNA of microorganisms, destroys their structure and inactivates living cells. In seconds the UV-C (UVGI) radiation renders viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi harmless. If the irradiation intensity is sufficiently high, UV disinfection is a reliable and environmentally friendly method, as the addition of chemicals is not necessary.

AIR QUALITY AWARENESS WEEK: THE IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING AIR QUALITY INSIDE THE HOME
Not only outside the house, poor air inside the house can also cause various health problems. Poor air quality in the house can be caused by pollution from outside the house or from objects in the house that we are not aware of as a breeding ground for germs. Especially in a closed room without ventilation at home, this place will of course be a place where dust, bacteria, fungi and viruses will continue to be in the room and multiply so that it pollutes the air and reduces its quality.

WORLD TUBERCULOSIS DAY: QUALITATIVE DETECTION OF ANTI-TB ANTIBODIES
Tuberculosis is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis and can be transmitted through droplets. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that more than 8 million new cases of active tuberculosis are diagnosed each year. Timely diagnosis is essential for TB control, as it provides early initiation of therapy and limits further spread of infection. ACCU-TELL® TB Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid test chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of anti-TB antibodies (IgG, IgM and IgA isotypes) in whole blood, serum or plasma specimens.

DANGEROUS! VARIOUS DISEASES CAN BE ACQUIRED DUE TO POOR AIR QUALITY IN CLOSED SPACES
Currently, there are many diseases related to air quality, both minor and even serious diseases such as ARI, tuberculosis, pneumonia, Covid-19 and even cancer. According to data, there are almost 90% of people who live in cities, more often spend their time in closed rooms, be it for work, study, rest, or discussion. Therefore, at this time it is necessary to think about how to create healthy air so that it can avoid diseases caused by the air. WHO recommends the use of Ulta Violet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) technology such as OXIRA type XG which can be used by the general public in closed spaces. Oxira type XG has been proven effective in reducing the infectious power of microorganisms by up to 85%.
