What is a Sanitising UVC Wand?

As the name suggests, its a surface sanitiser, in the shape of a wand, with built-in ultraviolet light technology. The type of ultraviolet used in these sanitising wands is UVC, which has a wavelength between 200 to 280 nanometres, powerful enough to destroy germs, typically to 99.9%.
