Food manufacturers are increasingly choosing disinfection with ultraviolet light as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional chemical processes.
BlueLight disinfection modules facilitate the rapid and safe disinfection of packaging materials and surfaces in the food industry
Short-wave UV-C radiation, in particular, has an intensive bactericidal effect. Microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungal spores are destroyed by UV radiation in a matter of seconds.
Already in use worldwide, UV disinfection modules from Heraeus Noblelight can be installed into existing filling machinery for dairy and beverage products. BlueLight UV disinfection modules are custom-built for the treatment of packaging and surfaces. Various shapes and sizes of containers for dairy products, as well as lids, sealing and packaging foils can be disinfected with UV radiation. UV disinfection inactivates up to 99.99% of total germs without slowing the machinery.
The UV modules are also suitable for combination treatment with UV and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The powerful systems produce cold UV radiation, disinfecting packaging material without heat.
The compact design makes it easy to retrofit BlueLight UV disinfection modules into existing plants. Heraeus offers UV disinfection modules in a range of sizes that can be adapted to suit the particular application.Contact:

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
