Does this product show actual germs (microbes) or bacteria on the skin?

Unfortunately such micro-organisms do not actually glow (or fluoresce) under UV light and if they did they would be much too small to see with the naked eye. What it does do however, is safely simulate the presence of micro-organisms so trainees can see with their own eyes the amount of simulated contaminants left behind after ineffective hand washing.

To achieve this we created microscopic germ-like smart particles which are only 5 microns in diameter (that’s just 5 millionths of a millimeter!) pretty small I’m sure you’d agree. Now in normal light they really are too small to see, however, when you shine a certain kind of UV light on them, they each glow an intense green or blue, like a microscopic supernova.

Shown here as GREEN but will actually glow in BLUE

Now combine these UV GERM particles with a high-quality, skin-safe, hypo-allergenic lotion and you have a pleasing, easy-to-use method of applying microscopic UV GERM simulation particles to hands prior to washing, a gentle, non-greasy, lotion which is safe for use on all skin types as well most non-porous surfaces and materials.

Hand Wash Training Steps

Dispense a small amount of UV GERM lotion onto the hands.

Rub in the training lotion into hands and wrists.

Turn-on the UV Forensic Torch and shine onto the hands.

Under UV Forensic Light, hands and wrists will glow brightly to show full coverage of the lotion.

Now wash hands as you would do normally.

Under UV light, those areas not properly cleaned will still glow  green or blue depending on the lotion colour used.

Now deliver the HY-5 Training and wash hands again. Properly!

Under UV light your hands should now be free of any glowing UV GERM particles. Perfect.
