Water treatment professionals have long known that ultraviolet light does not "technically" kill microorganisms. They understand that UV damages the DNA of a bacterial cell so that it cannot replicate. Essentially, it is rendered dead because it cannot replicate. However, they are still in the water, even if they are "dead men walking"! Now, we also find that in some cases, bacteria may remain dormant after UV disinfection.
In Chemical& Engineering News, dated January 15, 2015, Deirdre Lockwood reported this:
Many drinking water treatment facilities worldwide disinfect water with ultraviolet light because it is quick and efficient, kills protozoa such as Giardia, and does not introduce potentially harmful disinfection by-products. But a new study shows that UV treatment alone can push bacteria into a dormant state instead of killing them, and that in some cases, the bacteria can later revive and proliferate (Environ. Sci. Technol. 2015, DOI: 10.1021/es505211e).
“In contrast with chlorination, which kills by destroying the bacterial cell membrane, UV treatment leaves the membrane intact but damages bacterial DNA to block replication. But it can also induce bacteria into a viable but nonculturable state in which the bacteria are dormant and no longer form colonies but can later wake up and start dividing again.”
Quantum Disinfection is a "disruptive technology" in that it kills bacteria at the cellular level by removing their electrons.
Quantum Disinfection is completely and totally different than any other disinfection method.
Quantum Disinfection kills bacteria instantly upon contact.
