By emitting light almost entirely within the 400 to 500 nm bandwidth these Medical Therapy Jaundice TL/TL-D /52 lamps have no radiation from the short wave UVB waveband. They are therefore ideal for treating new born babies suffering from hyperbilirubinemia (neonatal jaundice) and Crigler-Najjar Syndrome (CNS). Moreover, the bandwidth of these lamps peak at the most effective treatment wavelength of 450 nm. This highly efficacious phototherapy treatment has eliminated the need for blood transfusions in almost all jaundiced infants.
Optimal spectrum for photo-oxidative process to convert unconjugated bilirubin into a watersoluble form
Emission peak at 450 nm
Tubular lamps can be operated in normal switch-start as well as pre-heat rapid-start systems
Medical treatment of jaundice in new-born babies (hyperbilirubinaemia), Crigler - Najjar (CN) syndrome
Warning & Safety
A lamp breaking is extremely unlikely to have any impact on your health. If a lamp breaks, ventilate the room for 30 minutes and remove the parts, preferably with gloves. Put them in a sealed plastic bag and take it to your local waste facilities for recycling. Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
