Germicidal Products Solutions for Lighting
Verifying germicidal devices for efficacy, performance, and compliance with safety guidelines in the intended environment
Germicidal lighting equipment incorporates light output in a special range that kills organisms and bacteria which lead to infectious disease. These lighting products are used in healthcare facilities, air filtration systems, and other applications worldwide to help prevent the spread of pathogens. As part of our Protek end-to-end health, safety, and wellbeing assurance programs, Intertek services support manufacturers, users, and facilities to assess equipment safety and performance.
Germicidal lighting products require testing and certification to ensure they comply with industry standards, can be legally sold and utilized in the intended environment, and are safe for use in the public domain.
Key areas of testing and verification:
- Ultraviolet (UV) Spectrum Verification Testing
- Photobiological Testing
- Lighting Performance Testing
- Emissions & Immunity Testing
- Safety Certification to Global Standards
- Efficacy Testing for Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial, and Anti-Microbial properties
- Germicidal Appliance Solutions
