When businesses and/or other organizations are looking for a company that can offer them an accurate and affordable UVA+B meter or Visible Light Meter, one company they can always turn to is Solar Light Company, Inc. In fact, since our founding in 1967, our Pennsylvania-based manufacturing business has sought to help scientists worldwide make breakthroughs with our products.
As many of you may know, we offer a full line of UV meters through our Solarmeter® brand that has allowed us to aid scientists such as Frances M. Baines in her research on UV lighting and its use on reptiles. Specifically, in an article that was published in the January/February issue of REPTILES Magazine, she detailed how professional zookeepers use the Solarmeter Model 6.5 UV Index Meter for its ability to measure UV irradiance in the wavelengths that support vitamin D3 synthesis in animals. She also went on to inform readers that our UV meter is one of the most useful she’s found.
Another one of the UV meters that we’re particularly proud of is our Solarmeter Model 5.7 Sensitive Total UV (A+B) Meter. Not only is this UV meter available for a great price of $249, but it has helped organizations like the XP Family Support Group in California, XP Society Of Israel, and several other related groups monitor UV exposure for patients living with xeroderma pigmentosum.
Xeroderma pigmentosum is a very rare genetic disorder that prevents affected individuals from being able to repair damage caused by UV light. Currently, there are no cures for the disease, and the only way a person can prevent its symptoms is by avoiding UV light altogether. By using the Model 5.7 Sensitive Total UV Meter, organizations all over the world test light conditions to assure patient safety. This device helps keep those with xeroderma pigmentosum stay safe by monitoring UV transmission outdoors, indoors, and through windows.
