The Mechanism

The ability of blue light to destroy microbes is based on its ability to energize naturally light-sensitive compounds inside the micro-organism so that they start producing reactive oxygen radicals. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are molecules containing a very reactive oxygen, causing the bacteria to damage ja destroy internally. Blue light has such penetrating abilities that the light used in the photon disinfection systems can even reach through biofilm produced by bacteria.
