What is Photodynamic reaction?

Lumoral method is based on the photodynamic reaction. It is an antibacterial process, known to all plants - they use it to protect themselves from harmful bacteria and viruses. It is one of the immune functions in the plant world.

Photodynamic reaction requires 

  • a light-sensitive molecule, a sensitizer
  • a particular type of light
  • presence of oxygen 

When photosensitizers are exposed to specific wavelengths of light, they produce a form of oxygen, that eliminates targeted bacterial cells. Human cells can protect themselves from reactive oxygen with an enzyme called catalase.
