Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in water were exposed to distinct wavelength bands of collimated beam ultraviolet (UV) radiation across the germicidal UV wavelength range (210-295 nm) that were emitted from a medium pressure (MP) mercury vapour lamp. The dose of UV radiation transmitted though each narrow bandpass filter was measured utilising potassium ferrioxalate actinometry. Oocyst infectivity was determined using a cell culture assay and titre was expressed as an MPN. The log10 inactivation… 
Enhanced UV Inactivation of Adenoviruses under Polychromatic UV Lamps
TLDR
The work reported here presents inactivation data for adenovirus based on polychromatic UV sources and details the significant enhancement in inactivation achieved using these poly chromatic sources.
Biofouling control in water by various UVC wavelengths and doses
TLDR
It appears that biofilm control is improved when larger UV doses are given, while higher levels of inactivation are obtained when using a full polychromatic MP lamp, and the experiments showed thatBiofilm prevention depends on the post-treatment incubation time and nutrient availability, in addition to targeted wavelengths, UV spectrum and UV dose.
UVGI Disinfection Theory
TLDR
This chapter examines the fundamentals of the complex interaction between UV irradiation and cell DNA at the molecular level and provides detailed background information to aid in the understanding of the various biophysical processes that are involved in microbial inactivation.
Pilot-scale evaluation of UV reactors' efficacy against in vitro infectivity of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts.
TLDR
An enhanced in vitroinfectivity test on HCT-8 cells was developed, where oocysts were pretreated in order to obtain maximized in vitro infectivity, and infectious foci were enumerated after immunofluorescence staining after 3 days of culture.
Growth Inhibition of Indigenous Algae by Low- or Medium-Pressure Ultraviolet Lamp Irradiation
Ultraviolet irradiation could be one of the alternatives to conventional treatments against algal bloom. In this study, the efficacy of UV treatment was investigated against the growth of indigenous
Development and characterization of nonpathogenic surrogates for UV reactor validation
TLDR
The UV dose‐ response of microorganisms are characterized that more closely match the dose‐response of Cryptosporidium than does MS2, a regulated pathogen targeted for UV inactivation credit.
