UV Protection

UV-C's effects on the human body vary depending on length of exposure, but can cause painful burns on the skin. It can also cause temporary damage to the cornea if observed directly. Aside from these threats, UV-C is a known carcinogen for human skin. We strongly suggest using protective eyewear, face shields, and gloves when working with UV-C. 

Frequently Asked Question (FAQs)

Can this be used for viewing fluorescent minerals? Yes, this would be a good lamp for viewing minerals. It has 254nm/365nm wavelengths. Many minerals excite at 254nm, but there are some that excite at 365nm. So, this will cover both sprectrums.
