Ultraviolet (UV) Lamps
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is invisible to the human eye. It comes in three categories. UVA, UVB & UVC. Each category is used for different purposes. Please ensure you purchase the correct lamp for your equipment. Incorrect or improperly used UV lamps can cause serious damage to eyes and skin. If in any doubt please contact a medical professional for advice before purchasing. mgc-medical.co.uk cannot offer advice on use or treatment and cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by using incorrect lamps or incorrectly using lamps. Please refer to manufacturers notes and warnings on the packaging.
Conditions of Sale for Medical UV Lamps
As an approved distributor of UV products, we have a commitment of care to ensure all of our products are sold for the correct purpose.
When we supply to a hospital directly, the lamps are used as time level treatment or the UV is decided and administered by a specialist nurse. Because the NHS sometimes recommends use of psoriasis cabinets at home, we are happy to supply UV lamps, but we need the end user to understand that they are completely responsible to adhere to the guidelines recommended by the hospital/clinic or the manufacturers of the cabinets.
UV LAMPS CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS TO SKIN AND EYESIGHT IF NOT USED UNDER STRICT GUIDELINES
To enable MGC Medical to supply UV lamps into a situation where the lamps are not used under supervision of a specialist nurse, we would ask that you agree to these terms and conditions before purchasing UV lamps. By agreeing to the terms and conditions you are showing that you are aware of the dangers of UV equipment and accept responsibility for any misuse and will in no way direct misuse back at MGC Medical.
