FLORENCE, Ky., April 13, 2016 — The PearlBeam from AquiSense Technologies is a compact collimated beam device employing UV-C LEDs emitting radiation in the germicidal range. Its small size and ease of use allows the realization of a table-top homogenized UV delivery system, which can be operated virtually anywhere in laboratory or even field locations. Unlike mercury-lamp systems, the PearlBeam features a narrow-band emission and is available with single, double or triple wavelengths ranging from 255 to 365 nm. The device consists of a UVinaire LED module, a controller and a collimating tube. The beam radiates a testing area of 45.6 cm2 with a petri dish factor >0.9, providing a homogeneous intensity distribution that is key for accurate dosimetry testing. LEDs require no warm up time, can endure an infinite number of on/off cycles, and reach their full intensity in less than 10 ns so the PearlBeam has an instantaneous shutter speed. AquiSense also offers a monthly rental option for users with short-term needs.
