Leverage lower heat exposure and enhanced output consistency

Primelite's UV-LED light engines provide highest exposure stability and accuracy.

High-intensities LEDs are making the leap from emerging to established technology in the life science sector. Especially, since the RoHS guidelines are continually tightened by the European Commission, as well as the Minamata Convention on Mercury, are forcing more companies to limit the use of mercury arc lamps. 

Several applications already switched to UV LEDs, e.g., Protein protection, bio-inactivation, chromatography, DNA samples analysis, due to their increased stability, more-controllable operation, and longer lifetime.

System Integration

The industrial chemistry landscape is strongly influenced by photochemistry. Specific UV-wavelength combinations stimulate molecular interdependencies which result in the synthesis or segregation of chemical compounds. 

This process is being used in the petrochemical, cosmetic, plastic, agricultural, and pharmaceutical industry to develop new products and innovations.

Applications are switching from mercury arc lamps to UV-LEDs to increase their efficiency, decrease waste streams, and limit the heat exposure of the process due to the lower temperature of LEDs.
