- group 1 with a ZooMed Laboratories, Inc. PowerSun® UV 100 W mercury vapor.
- group 2 with a 20 W full spectrum compact fluorescent bulb (Full Spectrum Solutions, Inc., P.O. Box 1087, Jackson, MI 49204, USA; Model PCF 209155).
- group 3 with a ZooMed Laboratories, Inc. Reptisun® (5.0) hard-quartz glass fluorescent tube light.
- group 4 with a standard 100 W incandescent bulb.
- group 5 was maintained outside in an area protected from wind and rain
UV-B radiation levels were measured using a digital ultraviolet radiometer (ZooMed Laboratories, 3650 Sacramento Drive, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401; Digital Ultraviolet Radiometer Item # ST-6).
