UV Kills the Following Bacteria, Viruses and Cysts

Our UV purifiers generate 30,000 microwatt seconds/cm2 or 30mjoules/cm2 for the required flow rate.  Here is a list of some of the numerous bacteria and viruses our UV purifiers kill, with the dosages required to kill them (much lower than what our units generate).  You can expect eradication of 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and cysts when the proper flow rate is maintained:
