Here's more great information about how the BRe3 Wand by BioRadiance works to optimize your plant's growth:
The Coverage: The light strip is designed to complement your grow lights and work synergistically within your existing grow operation. We recognize each grow operation is unique so we want to work with your team to design the best combination of the number of strips and the installation configuration needed to create optimal performance. It's most beneficial to provide protection in the vegetation and flowering stages, but PDW strips are most effective when used in every stage, from clone to cure℠
Simply put, if the light emitting from the PDW strip can reach the plant, it will destroy the pathogens. Each PDW strip is designed to cover an approximately 8 sq ft area and protect four to six plants. The strip comes equipped with a hanging mechanism, enabling you to easily tailor the recommended hanging height of 18 to 22 inches to your specific coverage needs.

BRe³ -- NEW LIGHT ENERGY THAT ACCELERATES RATES OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS AND CELLULAR RESPIRATION
Every cultivator knows that increasing the rate of photosynthetic carbon dioxide assimilation is paramount to achieving biomass accumulation or maximum growth = larger, stronger and healthier plants. The Wand with BRe³™ light energy increases photosynthetic activity naturally and safely.
How? In stimulating the photosynthetic activities of plants and their cellular respiration process, we also increase production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) in photosynthesis and oxidative phosphorylation. Photophosphorylation occurs during photosynthesis and oxidative phosphorylation during cellular respiration. These activities enable the plant to maintain its dynamic balance between photosynthesis and cellular respiration during the day and night cycles. These accelerated activities are especially related to carbon dioxide uptake, synthesis of secondary metabolites and plant hormones, but at a faster pace. This means more nutrient uptake and healthy growth.
The picture above shows sunlight energy as necessary for a plant’s growth and health. Today’s indoor grow lights do not deliver a full spectrum of light like the sun. The Wand uniquely adds the “Missing Wavelengths™” of light that the sun normally delivers to plants and this added energy allows the plant to maximize its potential. We call these unique missing wavelength combinations BRe³.
We also know that ATP is a primary form of energy that plants use directly. ATP is the currency that funds all cell activity. By increasing ATP production, BRe³ light energy is also making the plant healthier, richer and more valuable as well as stronger, more disease resistant, tougher and happier.
BRe³ light energy is a natural, clean and safe generator of increased ATP production. Cellular respiration and photosynthesis are complimentary processes. Energy from BRe³ light enters a plant and is converted into glucose and other carbohydrates during photosynthesis. Some of the energy is used to make ATP in the mitochondria during cellular respiration, and some is lost to the environment as heat. BRe³ light energy is stimulating the production of sugars, proteins, lipids and secondary metabolites, which add additional currency to the plant. And adding energy to the cellular respiration process so it can keep up with increased photosynthesis.
FACT: The sun has nurtured plants for millions of years. Plants have evolved and adapted to the sun’s complete spectrum. Plants want and need the total spectrum! Their genes are tuned for the sun’s total spectrum. Grow lights provide roughly 40% of the sun’s total spectrum.
Only the patented PD Wand with BRe³ can give you the “Missing Wavelengths™” that aid in increased photosynthesis and simultaneously cellular respiration, cellular repair and cellular management. Your plants are starving for them! Without BRe³, it could take millions of mutations and hundreds of years for plants to adapt to growing without the “missing wavelengths”.
Why penalize your plants? Stimulate them instead. Give them what they need and expect. Give them the “Missing Wavelengths™” of the sun’s full spectrum. Your plants deserve to be treated well.
A WORKING UNDERSTANDING OF THE BRe³ SCIENCE
Understanding the patented and patent pending science that BioRadiance Grow Science (“BRGS”) has developed to achieve its breakthrough results is very important. Here is an explanation, in layman’s terms.
HOW WAS THE SCIENCE DISCOVERED?
After decades of research coupled with trial and error testing conducted by our co-founder and Ph.D. in plant physiology and his colleagues going back to the 1990’s, a general discovery was made that validated that specific wavelengths adversely affected life forms, including bacteria and fungi. It was known that ultraviolet was very deadly to bacteria, fungi and plants, but also harmful to humans. The discovery identified totally different segments of the light spectrum, which are invisible to humans, that both accelerated the photosynthesis process and simultaneously killed bacteria and fungi. These elements were safe for humans and had more penetrating capacity than blue or violet light. These findings were not utilized much at the time because the only way to deliver them was with lasers and they were closely regulated and expensive.
About twenty years ago, our Ph.D. plant physiologist and a group of scientists discovered that very specific elements of this newly discovered light segment stimulate certain physiological and biochemical processes in plants (floral, fruits, vegetables) that were both living and already harvested making them (a) live longer, (b) stay fresher longer and (c) maintain their own microbial defenses longer. From this discovery, our scientistapplied for and was awarded a patent that has become the foundation of the BioRadiance Grow Science that we call BRe³.
HOW DOES THE BRe³ TECHNOLOGY GET DELIVERED IN TODAY’S APPLICATION?
Our Ph.D. plant physiologist realized that with the invention and perfection of LED light emitters, there was now a realistic possibility of emitting the exact and unique combination of wavelengths that do multiple yet in balance actions (a) accelerate photosynthesis processes leading to increased ATP production, (b) increase the plant’s growth rate and regulate some processes of their development like flower and fruit production and delay senescence of the plant's tissues and organs, (c) optimize cellular repair, and (d) cause the maximum amount of damage to microbes. With the refinement and added power output from specific proprietary emitters, BioRadiance Grow Science has been able to create customized combinations of specific wavelengths incorporated in our devices that produce strong enough power (radiant flux) delivered to the plant to be highly beneficial to plant growth and devastating to microbes – pathogenic bacteria and fungi/mold/mildew. Simply, we concurrently produce a balance of positive energy for growth and negative energy for pathogen destruction. BioRadiance Grow Science has branded these wavelength groupings as BRe³ and these combinations or formulae resemble the small, safe portions of the solar spectrum that work.

HOW DOES BRe³ OPTIMIZE GROWTH?
The Power to ³ in our brand (BRe³) simply highlights the three primary benefits of our science. We (1) stimulate the rate of photosynthetic activities of plants and their cellular respiration process, which increases production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) in photosynthesis and oxidative phosphorylation. Photophosphorylation occurs during photosynthesis and oxidative phosphorylation during cellular respiration. These activities allow the plant to maintain its necessary dynamic and balance between photosynthetic processes and cellular respiration during the day and night cycles. These accelerated activities are especially related to carbon dioxide uptake, synthesis of secondary metabolites and the plant’s hormones but at a much faster pace. Simply put, this means more nutrient uptake and healthy growth. (2) Working in concert within the plant’s photosynthesis process are properly directed hormones and added ATP available for optimal cellular repair activity. The presence of BRe³ simply allows cells to live longer. And (3) a different cocktail of wavelengths of safe light attack and destroy pathogens like fungi/mold/mildew.
HOW DOES BRe³ KILL THE MICROBES?
BRe³ disables the ability of iron-dependent bacteria to synthesize iron so they cannot feed themselves and they die. For most other bacteria and fungi, the radiant power of our science excites electrons and makes lethal damages in the microbes until the cell wall or the mitochondria (the cell’s powerhouse) ruptures, causing death. BioRadiance understands how these microbes differ when it comes to (a) what power level is needed and (b) what exposure time is necessary to best destroy them.
WILL BACTERIA AND FUNGI ADAPT TO OUR SCIENCE IN THE SHORT TERM?
It is very unlikely that microbes will adapt to our science in the short term. The manner in which they are killed will make adaptation very difficult. Let us not forget that we have based our science on something essential for all life---light from the sun. While pathogens like bacteria have become resistant to drugs, like antibiotics, in many cases this process has taken a few generations. Since the strong bacteria survive and mutate, any treatment over the long term could lose its effectiveness. We believe that since we have developed our technology on natural, basic elements of life---light from the sun --- we conclude that the ability of fungi and bacteria to adapt will be very difficult.
BRe³ is a FIRST OF A KIND SCIENCE. The products we design and manufacture are unique. We use safe forms of radiant energy that are instrumental in plant growth and detrimental to microbe proliferation. Our patented and patent pending scientific discoveries will allow all of us to build strong and sustainable businesses together.
