From BACTERIAL & VIRAL INFECTIONS

Kill a wide range of disease-causing bacteria and viruses — in just seconds! Protect against E.Coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Listeria, the H1N1 flu virus, and much more! Sanitize telephones and cell phones, toilet seats and flush handles, sinks, faucets, countertops, computer mouse devices and keyboards, plastic toys, doorknobs, and many other commonly contaminated surfaces. Also, safely purify drinking water.

Safe

Unique Child Safety Switch

Child-Safety Switch

The DeGERM-inator™ (UV-5D) portable ultraviolet sanitizer uses the short-wave UV (germicidal) method of deactivating and killing microbes, which has been recommended for over 50 years by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. For added safety, the DeGERM-inator lamp features a unique child-safety switch to prevent accidental UV exposure.

Easy

To kill most microorganisms, simply turn on the DeGERM-inator, and shine the short-wave UV (254nm) light on any nonporous surface for 6 to 8 seconds*.

Durable

Made of a rugged engineering polymer that is shock-proof and impact-resistant.

Portable

Pocket-sized. Lamps are 8 7/8 inches (22.3 cm) long, and weigh only 10 1/4 oz (290 g). They can be conveniently carried in a purse, briefcase, or auto glove compartment! Works on four AA alkaline batteries or AC power. Comes complete with a nylon travel pouch, carrying strap, and AC adapter.

Why should I use the DeGERM-inator?

Antibacterial chemicals, soaps, detergents, lotions, and creams can lose their sanitizing properties when overused, according to medical experts.

This increases the danger of developing super-bacteria that are resistant to conventional antibiotics. You can avoid this health risk by using the DeGERM-inator.

Are there any risks in using the DeGERM-inator?

Unlike personal hygiene products, the DeGERM-inator is used only on the objects you touch — not your body. It is completely safe when used as directed.

How effective is the DeGERM-inator?

Extremely effective! Antibacterial agents found in personal hygiene products may not kill all the bacteria. Many bacteria merely mutate into tougher, drug-resistant strains.

On the other hand, the germicidal ultraviolet light emitted by the DeGERM-inator damages the DNA in bacteria and viruses, killing over 90% of them outright!

THE ONLY PORTABLE UV SANITIZER WITH A CHILD SAFETY SWITCH!

The information presented here is for educational purposes only. It is not intended to replace medical advice. None of the sources cited assume liability for any use or misuse of the product, or of the information cited here. Every effort has been made to present accurate information about the DeGerm-inator and its proper use. The DeGerm-inator is not a toy, and should be used in a responsible manner. Instructions for use must be followed precisely, or injury may occur.

For optimal use, operate at 77°F (25°C) at a maximum distance of 0.5 inches (1.3cm) with fresh batteries (less than 3 hours of use).

* Tests conducted and verified under Anastasia Gregoriades, Ph.D., at Queens College (New York) established the kill ratio by the DeGERM-inator™ on the organisms cited.

  • The lethal exposure time of the organism is determined by the wavelength of radiation, density of radiant flux (µW/cm²), and time.
  • The time required to kill or inactivate greater than 90% is proportionate to the ratio of the required killing energy and the irradiance of the light source, i.e., Time = Energy Required (µW.sec/cm²)/ Irradiance (µW/cm²).
  • The ultraviolet output can vary considerably with temperature, distance, and battery charge.
  • Safe exposure limits for ultraviolet germicidal radiation have been set by the American Conference of Governmental and Industrial Hygienists.
