The longer the coronavirus pandemic lasts, the more important it is to stay safe and healthy in everyday life. Hygiene measures, such as wearing a facemask or socially distancing, help safeguard against the spread of germs. But light in the right wavelength also makes an enormous contribution to fighting viruses. UV-C light can eliminate 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria on surfaces, in the air and in drinking water. As one of the world's leading manufacturers, Osram Opto Semiconductors now enables particularly small and robust disinfection applications with its LEDs, while also driving the industrialization of these special light sources forward. The Oslon UV 3636 marks the beginning of a comprehensive portfolio in the UV-C LED sector.

Oslon UV 3636, Osram’s first UV-C LED, is available in a low- and a mid-power version and features compact dimensions of 3.6 mm x 3.6 mm (more info).
