UV germicidal chambers - best practices

Are UV germicidal chambers (UV boxes) efficient at decontaminating objects before their entry in the farm? Yes, if you use them properly!

The Swine Disease Eradication Center developed a short video and a set of hand-outs to show you the dos and don'ts of UV boxes. Feel free to use the materials for training or share them with someone who will find them useful.

These videos were created in partnership with the University of Minnesota Center for Animal Health and Food Safety.
