QuantaDose UVC test cards are reusable but not invincible; over time, photochromic analytes will degrade. See the message explaining this on the QuantaDose homepage
This package is for the avid UVC tester; it includes 5 QuantaDose cards and a 3 Watt UVC wand for test card calibration. Holding the 3 watt light 1 inch away will advise you if your card is still suitable for UVGI intensity testing.
QuantaDose UVC test cards are rapid results test cards, meaning you can visualize within 15 seconds a dosage starting at 300 µW/cm², indicating that a 100 mJ/cm² accumulative dosage is reached in approximately five minutes.
Final UV lamp placement is decided quickly with QuantaDose. However, it does not replace a medical-grade 1000 mJ/cm² Dosimeters for medical-grade PPE accumulated UVGI dosage to target areas for final conformation of lighting arrangements. Other common uses include checking bulbs in DIY PPE UV cleaning devices, test UV lights purchased online, or just about anything UV.
The top of the card can easily find areas hiding in UVC shadows, as the UVGI wavelength indicator glows brightly when in direct line of sight from a UVC light source or strong reflection. Simultaneously, the intensity gauge exhibits a noticeable change displaying the word “ultraviolet” starting at 300 µW/cm² in less than 15 seconds and remains visible after exposure to a UVC for 3-15 seconds, when achieving a passing UVC test. A failing test result occurs when the purple color shades don’t get dark enough for the word “ultraviolet” to become visible; thus, 3-15 seconds visibility isn’t achieved when UVC power is below 300 µW/cm² UVC calibrated at 253.7 mn.
To get the maximum life out of your QuantaDose test cards, we provide a resealable Mylar black bag for storage and recommend only exposing the Quantadose card in intervals of no longer than 15 seconds – if you haven’t achieved color change in 15 seconds, you are most likely under 300-500 µW/cm² UVGI intensity.
