This decontamination chamber uses UV radiation

The UV-Box (photo) is a high-efficiency chamber designed to safely decontaminate contents while providing a safe work environment for the operator. High-intensity ultraviolet (UV) lamps are positioned within the cabinet, producing short-wave (254 nm) UV light to destroy exposed surface DNA and bacteria, leaving samples free of contamination prior to tests, analysis or procedures. UV lamps are optimally placed to eliminate blind spots. Corners and walls are smooth to ensure easy cleaning. Stainless-steel surfaces naturally reflect UV radiation to ensure contents are fully irradiated from all directions. — Air Science, Fort Myers, Fla.
