PROTECT YOURSELF 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.
The DeGERM-inator™ 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 (CDC). For added safety, the DeGERM-inator lamp features a unique child-safety switch to prevent accidental UV exposure.
To kill most microorganisms, simply turn on the DeGERM-inator, and shine the short-wave UV-C (254 nm) light on any nonporous surface for 6 to 8 seconds at a distance of one-half inch (1.3 cm) or less from the surface. Some germs may take longer. Repeat this over every area of the surface exposed to sunlight.*
Made of a rugged engineering polymer that is shock-proof and impact-resistant.
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.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS THE DEGERM-INATOR?
The DeGERM-inator has been shown to damage the DNA in bacteria and viruses, killing over 90% of them outright!
*The DeGERM-inator has not been tested yet on the COVID-19 Coronavirus. It has been laboratory tested against common household bacteria and other common viruses. UV-C is a suggested method of sanitizing from the CDC, especially for Filtering Facepiece Respirators (FFRs).
