The all new 2020 QuantaDose reusable UVC test card! (2nd Edition Shown)
The world’s first UVC intensity test card with UVGI wavelength indicator.
REUSABLE (>1000 15 Second Exposures @ 300 µW/cm)
QuantaDose™ UVC test cards are a pre-calibrated UVC light wavelength and intensity instrument to get a rapid visual reference of both UVC intensity and UVC wavelength that is being used with UVC test results completed in only seconds!
QuantaDose™ UVC test cards are the world’s first and only 2-in-1 UVC Test Cards combining two results for accurate UVC intensity readings from specially designed reusable UV wide-band analytes.
It is important that the lower UVC intensity gauge is used in tandem with the top wavelength indicator to confirm that you measure UVC intensity from a real source of UV-C wavelength light. This part of the test is instant! The glowing letters “UV-C” will only glow when exposed to 220-270 nm -+ 5 nm indicating the wavelength is germicidal – this is not indicative of power or intensity. This is measured in the lower test card area.
Only after seeing the instant pre-calibrated UVC wavelength reaction on the UVC test cards top UV-C wavelength Indicator. Represented by the letters “UV-C” glowing brightly. This confirms the detection of light between 250-275 nm -+ 5 nm.
Now that UVC wavelength is confirmed, the next step is UVC intensity testing, this is the most helpful part of the UV test card. This informs you if the UVC intensity is powerful enough to disinfect over the time-frame you require.
Besides creating breakthrough wide-band reversible analytes, the biggest breakthrough came in the form of a simple inverted word. This inverted word turned out to be the most important part of visualizing UVC intensity test card calibration points, and confirmation of reaching a pre-calibrated UVC intensity level of 300 µW/cm² to reference for UVC dosage calculations.
The QuantaDose™ UVC intensity test card relies on the word ULTRAVIOLET becoming visible starting at 300 µW/cm² when exposed to UVC light between 250-270 nm (UV-C will be visible in the top indicator)
The UVC Test card’s photochromic color change exhibits a reversible UV/UVC intensity gauge that first displays the word ULTRAVIOLET at 300 µW/cm². When we were designing the QuantaDose™ we had to ensure the accuracy of visualizing closely calibrated UVC intensity levels for meaningful reference.
What we found was that everyone could perceive shades of colors very differently when dealing with light colors with little differences between shades, but big differences in intensity between these shades.
Yet, a word always becomes visible to everyone’s eyes at about the same time providing your vision is good enough to drive a car legally.
This is why QuantaDose™ has chosen word visibility over color differentials to visualize UVC at a minimum calibrated UVC intensity level of at 300 µW/cm² when the word ULTRAVIOLET becomes visible under a confirmed UVC wavelength of 250-270 nm.
For consumers that purchase this product for a single time use to test a UVC light product, We have boxed in our wide-band UV analyte to include a UV sun gauge, so the card continues to be useful.
QuantaDose™ is a photochromic intensity and wavelength indicator card that is a reusable, essential, reliable, low cost, simple, in-house method of quickly monitoring UV intensity along with verifying optimal UVGI wavelengths.
This product has many uses! Initially designed for fully protected UV light installers, UV sanitation workers, and homeowners to quickly visualize their UVC disinfection grid for the fastest, most effective UV lamp set up time.
Using the QuantaDose™ rapid visualization technology before the final use of expensive single-use medical-grade irreversible testing cards can help you avoid wasting money on blindly guessing UVC lamp placement for a timely lethal dose of UV exposure.
Now millions of consumers that have purchased UVC products have a cheap and easy way to see if what they paid for is UVGI that a hospital would trust for rapid disinfection in under 10 minutes. The world’s only UVGI rapid test intensity test card.
QuantaDose™ professional-grade reversible UVC test cards are not designed to replace medical-grade irreversible photochromic pigment cards, QuantaDose™ is a quick reference tool to help prevent waste of expensive single-use UVC dosage cards with an early indication before going through the time of running through a full cycle!
While it is not difficult to calculate dosage when you know intensity at any given distance from the UV source.
We highly suggest irreversible UVC test cards should be used for confirming 50 and 100 mJ/cm² accumulative exposure dosage over the entire time of the UVGI disinfection process for either commercial or home environments as final confirmation.
UVC Dosimeter Test Cards vs UVC QuantaDose Intensity Test Cards vs UVC Indicator Test Cards
QuantaDose™ minimum intensity readings give you the ability to calculate dosage at any given distance, it is even very helpful under reflective conditions.
When you know the UVC intensity at any giving point of known distance, QuantaDose™ can provide the necessary variables needed to calculate accumulated dosage overtime at different distances.
The inverse square law of distance can be used to calculate UVC intensity that is directly proportional to the distance of the direct line of sight from a UVC light source when longer disinfection times (Under 300 µW/cm²) are used to reach target areas as a result of being farther away from a UVC light source.
The video here is quantifying the QuantaDose™ UVC Rapid Test with American Ultraviolet UVC Dosimeters by Intellego Technologies and General Tools UV512C UVC light meter.
The video clearly shows UVGI wavelength and the minimum of 300 µW/cm² was confirmed by QuantaDose™ intensity gauge for rapid disinfection.
At the distance seen, the 35-watt UVC bulb peaked at 350 µW/cm² at full operating temperature. Notice QuantaDose™ color when exposure reaches 300 µW/cm² as the bulb warms up to reach the minimum intensity for a color reaction to occur.
At this intensity, a 100 mJ/cm² accumulative exposure is reached in 5 minutes as confirmed with American Ultraviolet’s UVC Dosimeters by Intellego Technologies and the real-time readings in µW/cm² are provided with a General Tools UV512C UVC light meter.
Start increasing the efficiency of UVC light disinfection and UV safety with a new visual perspective!
QuantaDose™ UVC test cards are reusable but not invincible, over time photochromic analytes will degrade from high energy UV exposure.
QuantaDose™ offers a package for UVC installers and the avid UVC light tester, it includes 5 QuantaDose™UVC test cards and a FREE 3 Watt UVC light wand for UVC test card calibration. By simply holding a 3 watt light one inch away will advise you if your card is still suitable for UVGI intensity testing.
