Juha Matilainen, Laboratory Director, PhD, of Nordic Laboratories explains why they chose Spectral Blue visible blue light devices instead of UV radiation in their biosafety cabinets.

“In the decision, we looked at three things.
First, we are committed to providing high quality and reliable results to our partners and customers. There is no room for contamination in our samples. With Spectral Blue, we know that the decontamination process works every day with the same efficiency.
Second, we take pride in taking good care of our employees. We want to use technologies that take into account their safety and wellbeing. Replacing dangerous UVC and reducing the use of toxic chemicals is an obvious choice for us.
Last, but not least, we want to make our operations as sustainable as possible. The Spectral Blue devices have a very long lifetime and do not contain mercury or generate ozone. This is important not only for us, but also for our customers and partners. Together with them, we want to reduce the environmental footprint of the whole value chain.
Spectral Blue delivers all these things and setting up the device took us no more than 30 seconds. We couldn’t be happier.”
