Utilizing rapid visualization technology, the QuantaDose™ UVC Test Card helps consumers discern fraudulent Ultraviolet-C (UVC) disinfection lighting products from effective ones that are scientifically proven to destroy bacteria, viruses, and other microbes on surfaces.
QuantaDose Protects the Public Against Predatory Pandemic Scammers with Germicidal UVC Light Test Card
Every day people are being taken advantage of by online scammers simply because consumers do not have access to a simple tool like the QuantaDose™ to test UVC light products
Ultraviolet-C (UVC) light is produced by the sun, except it is different from UV known for causing sunburns and skin cancer. Unlike UVA and UVB, UVC is blocked by the earth’s atmosphere and does not occur naturally on the Earth’s surface. Hence, we rely on human-made sources of UVC light at precise accumulated dosage levels to destroy bacteria, viruses, and other dangerous pathogens that gather in homes, schools, and other communal areas.
QuantaDose™ was designed with this in mind to quickly visualize UVC intensity for the most effective disinfection process. UVC technology has been implemented for decades in the medical industry to disinfect and safeguard hospitals and other medical facilities. In these environments, the correct UVC intensity and the dosage is the most critical part of the disinfection process.
“Unfortunately, we’re seeing everyday people being taken advantage of by scammers simply because they do not have access to a simple tool like the QuantaDose™ that can tell them if the UVC light sterilizer wands, PPE disinfection boxes, or anything else they have purchased for UV disenfection is an effective method of inactivating viruses and other pathogens in their home,” says CEO Katie Webb.
Webb adds: “ QuantaDose™ has quickly answered the critical unmet need for a broadly adoptable, low-cost, miniaturized, and accurate visualization tool to quickly enable informed decision making when choosing UV protection as a pandemic countermeasure to protect family and loved ones.”

UVC Test By QuantaDose Detects Counterfeit UVC Sanitizer and UV Sterilizers Using Reusable UVC Wavelength Indicator with UVC Test Strip for UV Power Levels
QuantaDose has developed a new anti-counterfeit technology for commercial business and residential consumer-grade UV light sanitization equipment with a credit card size reusable UVC test that instantly indicates if a UV device produces optimal UVC germicidal wavelengths to help consumers discern fraudulently marketed UVC light sterilization products from the most effective UVC germicidal wavelengths.
Nationwide, counterfeited goods have received significant attention, ranging from senators writing letters to Amazon to remove illegal, deadly, and deceptive products sold on the platform to President Trump addressing the counterfeit goods problem from countries like China as foreign sellers dominate many retail platforms in the USA.
Counterfeit goods are a big problem because foreign sellers evade legal repercussions when not respecting US intellectual property laws designed to protect American consumers and businesses alike.
“Oversight action didn’t happen soon enough,” said QuantaDose CTO, John Coates.
The lead engineer behind the consumer-friendly, cost-effective, credit card-sized counterfeit detector designed for scrutinizing consumer-grade UVC sterilization lights that have flooded online marketplaces since the pandemic began.
QuantaDose CEO, Katie Webb, comments on the Committee’s report saying, “The counterfeit health risks outlined in the Senate Finance Committee’s report pails in comparison to the risk of counterfeits online during the pandemic sold to aid in virus prevention – immediate revisions and government action must be taken to protect the people of our nation.”
“We are pleased to be recognized by businesses around the world; we believe this recognition is validation for the importance of businesses testing UVC lighting and value that QuantaDose solutions can offer to Supply Chain leaders in the fight against UVC counterfeits. To begin with, our biggest goal should be to stop fake UVC disinfection products from ever making it to gym owners in the first place,” commented Coates.
The QuantaDose UVC test card can instantly detect real UVC light wavelengths to alert consumers if they are under a false sense of virus protection from falling victim to fake UVC germicidal lighting.
No matter what UV disinfection technology is being used, the QuantaDose UVC test card is designed for detecting state-of-the-art 222nm wavelengths produced by Far UV-C micro-plasma lamps and Far-UV excimer bulbs; optimized for the most common 253.7nm mercury-line wavelength and extending all the way up to a wavelength of 280nm for Deep UV LED technology. All of which are UV wavelengths produced by legitimate UV-C disinfection products.
Coates advises: “QuantaDose UVC counterfeiting countermeasures should be implemented throughout the UVC lighting supply chain in the USA. In our opinion, this recommendation is in line with a focus on the importance of public health and brand protection for all resellers of UVC lighting products purchased overseas for resale in the USA market.
By using QuantaDose, businesses can confirm their brand’s in-store UVC virus precautions aren’t fake and take QuantaDose quality control measures before approving the resale of UVC devices to help protect consumers in the USA from the dangers of counterfeits. Best of all, QuantaDose is affordable to all at only $10 and very consumer-friendly for end-users to confirm their real UVC products.
Mom’s Work From Home Start-up QuantaDose™ Makes #1 Best Seller List on Amazon
An idea that came to light while fighting the darkness of family separated in quarantine, the reusable UVC light test card “QuantaDose” is already a number 1 Best Seller on Amazon with distributors for the brand around the world.
QuantaDose™ didn’t exist before the pandemic, says Katie Webb, the company’s founder. Webb realized that fast, reliable, and accurate testing for UVC lights needed to be cost-prohibitive and reusable when people like her were unable to work while caring for family members during the quarantine.
Webb was frantically trying to understand all the options for keeping her family safe. Webb found that many so-called UVC lights were just pretty blue lights without protection. Expensive single-use UVC test cards were just too much money going into the trash, Webb stated. Webb shared her frustration with her child’s quarantined father, now CTO for Webb’s company, who promised a solution in exchange for meals delivered to the window while separated from the family. That solution is QuantaDose™!
Existing businesses could get loans – as a start-up during a pandemic, there is one chance to get the product right because you’re 100% on credit cards. “Banks didn’t consider lending to me at all,” Webb stated.
“We are just grateful to be in a position to do something useful and create useful tools during a time we all need to do what we can to help each other,” said Katie Webb.
QuantaDose™ is the first reusable UVC light test card to use calibrated word legibility starting > 300 µW/cm² when the word “ULTRAVIOLET” first becomes legible during exposure to optimal UVC germicidal wavelengths. UVGI wavelengths are confirmed when UV-C glows green in the top test area.
In just a few months, Quanta X Technology, the parent company of QuantaDose.com, has worked with some of the most pioneering companies and people in the world that share a vision of the future of Far-UV/UVC technology.
QuantaDose UVC Test Cards Surge Amid Record Black Friday UV Phone Cleaner, UV Light Wand, and UV Sanitizer Sales
QuantaDose was created out of the need for a rapid-response reusable UVC test to prevent consumers from falling victim to UV sterilizer scams which are flooding the US market as potential holiday stocking stuffers. QuantaDose instantly informs holiday shoppers if a UV wavelength is truly germicidal and, within 15 seconds, provides confirmation of >300 µW/cm² UVC intensity for peace of mind that real UVC power is being used for disinfection given the proper time and distance is calculated.
Designed and Engineered in the USA, the reusable QuantaDose UVC test card uses photochromatic WPV (Word Power Visibility) technology to provide reliable UVC intensity readings in 15 seconds with instant notification of optimal UV-C germicidal wavelengths. The QuantaDose UVC intensity test card relies on calibrated word legibility starting > 300 µW/cm² when the word ”ULTRAVIOLET” first becomes legible during exposure to optimal UVC germicidal wavelengths.
“The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way Americans spent Thanksgiving yesterday. The outbreak has also changed what people are rushing to buy today that weren’t on last year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping list,” said CTO John Coates.
Coates stated that QuantaDose UVC light test cards are one of those innovative items that made the #1 bestsellers list on Amazon even before the holiday rush. Millions of people depend on unregulated UVC devices dominated by third-party sellers on mainstream shopping sites. Unfortunately, the charlatan sellers use much cheaper components that can’t provide the UVC disinfecting power many manufacturers claim. QuantaDose UVC light test cards are very easy-to-use, credit card-sized UVC Indicators that can increase the efficiency of the UVC light disinfection processes by helping consumers to quickly visualize what is most effective, instantly ruling out most all falsely advertised UV sterilization products,” he said.
QuantaDose created a specially formulated ink chemistry sensitive to only optimal UVC, which will not fluoresce to ordinary visible light or UVA and UVB. This ensures the transparent letters UV-C only illuminate bright fluorescent green under germicidal UV wavelengths between 222-280nm. QuantaDose provides consumers with the quickest verification method to avoid an increasing number of fraudulent UVC light products that flood the consumer market.
According to Katie Webb, CEO of Quanta X Technology, the QuantaDose team prides itself on rapidly fine-tuning its product line, including designs for very high-power UVC devices and the development of Far-UV analytes.
“We have been busy, already on the 3rd edition of QuantaDose UV test cards. We are focused on making QuantaDose the most helpful tool; QuantaDose is quickly innovating in quantum confinement effects and molecular fluorescence material designs that haven’t advanced much in 20 years. This has led to a new QuantaDose product being launched every 45 days. It is inspiring to be able to produce the best tools to help people make the best choices when trusting UVC as part of their disinfection routine,” she said.
HOW TO USE QUANTADOSE UVC TEST CARD
STEP 1) Top Light Sensor Test Wavelength of UV Exposure: When exposed to optimal UVC germicidal wavelengths, the QuantaDose UVC test card undergoes an instant color change to a green glow where fluorescence is directly related to energy values of UV wavelength received. Fluorescence stops when excited electrons release all photos within nanoseconds after exposure.
STEP 2) Bottom Light Sensor Test Intensity of UV Exposure: When exposed to confirmed mercury-line UVC wavelengths, the QuantaDose test card first displays the word “ULTRAVIOLET ” at approximately > 300 µW/cm² a gradual color change is directly related to the energy value received. Temporary photochromic dosimeter color is used to check intensity after exposure and should be checked immediately after the test for the most accurate intensity results. The test is completed in 15 secs; remove the card from the source!
With QuantaDose, you’re not just purchasing a product- you’re making an investment in protecting love-ones from bad actors and fraudulent UVC products being sold almost everywhere online.
“There are a lot of fake UV disinfection products being sold openly by third-party sellers on mainstream online marketplaces. Fake UV light products marketed with unverified claims, available 24/7 to our neighbors, are a potentially fatal scam during the pandemic. The QuantaDose UVC light test card can instantly identify a fake UVC light, so people are not relying on a false sense of protection.”
