The article specifically details some of Dr. Baines’ most exciting findings, and the developments over the past few years regarding UV lighting and its use on reptiles. She describes the features of ultraviolet light, how UVB is vital for the creation of vitamin D3 in all types of reptiles, and how reptile keepers can discover the amount of UVB their reptiles need
Reptile owners are consistently wondering about proper UV dosages for their animals, and Dr. Baines explains that our Solarmeter 6.5 UV Index Meter is the worldwide standard for affordable yet accurate UV measurement in reptile habitats. As Dr. Baines explains, the Model 6.5 is unique because of its ability to measure UV irradiance in the wavelengths that promote vitamin D3 synthesis.
This is a fine example of our UV meters as solutions to critical needs, helping to ensure the health of reptiles all over the globe. To learn more about our Solarmeter Model 6.5 UV Index Meter and what it can do, please give us a call 215-517-8700, or browse our website.
