  You proably need to leave the materials a disance of about 10-20cm
under your light for about one hour to insure sterilization.  If you are
sterilizing scissors, you need to sterilize both sides with the scissors
fully opened.  I don't recommend trying to sterilize any closed items
(e.g. tubes, tubing).  Alternatively, you could use a flame and 100%
ethanol to quick sterilize the metal objects.
