Coronavirus has been raging recently, and people are snapping up all kinds of disinfection and antibacterial products. Before becoming one of them, have you ever thought about what you really need or what effect you want from the products?
Before this, you need to clearly distinguish the differences between Viruses, Bacteria and Germs. It can help you to know what you need and know how to choose the product that best suits your needs, so as not to cause unnecessary waste.
First, is the Viruses.
It is an organic species between living and non-living organisms that lives by parasites. It is neither living nor non-living. It is not currently attributed to the Five Realms (prokaryotes, protozoa, fungi, plants and animals). in.Simply said, when the virus finds a suitable host, it will enter some cells in the host, let the host cells make nutrients for the virus to multiply, and finally the host cells will be destroyed, which will cause the body to develop disease. And the way to prevent and treat the virus is to vaccinate and take antiviral drugs.
Second, is bacteria.
It is a tiny, single-celled organic organism that has a great impact on human activities. On the one hand, bacteria are the pathogens of many diseases, including tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, plague and other diseases are caused by bacteria. However, humans often use beneficial bacteria to make cheese and yogurt and wine, some antibiotics, and wastewater treatment, all of which are related to bacteria. To deal with bad bacteria, antibiotics are commonly used to deal with it, so that these bad bacteria can be destroyed or the reproduction speed of bad bacteria can be delayed, so that the immune system can destroy them.
The third type is Germs. The broad sense refers to the microorganisms that make people sick, and the above viruses and bacteria are also one of the germs.
Now, do you have a preliminary concept after such a simple explanation?
The sterilized alcohol-based hand rubs or wipes that have been snapped up in the market are sanitized by causing protein denaturation, leading to the death of bacteria or viruses. However, for some non-enveloped viruses, such as hand, foot and mouth disease (enterovirus E71), rotavirus, and coronavirus infection, alcohol can only make it inactive, but it cannot kill it. Please keep in mind that the concentration of alcohol directly affects the above effects, not the higher the concentration, the better the effect.
Maybe you ask, is there any other method that can be simpler and more direct, and even more effective disinfection?
The answer is yes, that is the ultraviolet rays that we are often exposed to. Ultraviolet light disinfection technology can destroy the molecular structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (ribonucleic acid) in the cells of microorganisms by using ultraviolet rays of appropriate wavelengths, causing growth cell death and / or regenerative cell death to achieve sterilization Effect.
The only small flaw is that it is more difficult to find products using UV disinfection technology, but rest assured, now I recommend a product I like very much to you, let us fight the epidemic together!
Lexuma XGerm and XGerm PRO multi-functional portable ultraviolet sterilizers make use of ultraviolet light disinfection technology to kill bacteria on most electronic equipment, and the operation is simple and easy to use. Even an electronic rookie can easily use it! I think the price is also very reasonable, and the price is first-rate. I recommend everyone to try it!
In addition, give you a small suggestion, after thoroughly disinfecting and sterilizing the objects, we should use antibacterial products to reduce the chance of bacteria and viruses breeding again.
The following is another recommendation for my recent favorite-IMC Water Catalyst Continuous Antibacterial Liquid
IMC water catalyst can effectively cover the material, and form a grid-like conductive film, which fully penetrates and adheres to the surface of the object. The conductive film generates free radicals to absorb positrons on bacteria, making them shrink and difficult to grow. The surface of the material has a continuous antibacterial and antiviral effect.
