I have a Canon 5D Mark III UV-converted camera. I recently purchased a Kino Flo Diva Light 401. I need assistance in sourcing UV fluorescent bulbs (21") to use on a UV project I am working on. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Below is the website address that might assist you. Thank you in advance!

Skin Doc, I don't know if I exactly understand what your question is.
Kino Flo doesn't seem to have UV bulbs for their fixtures, as far as I can see on their site.
So you would need to get some UV bulbs to fit your fixture of the same bulb style.
Might be bad for cataracts though?

Check Atlanta light bulbs. Com
ALB
I have ordered some crazy stuff from them, even 313 and 303nm bulbs.
It would help if you typed in the codes off one of your bulbs.

A quick search and you might have a F13T5. Those are 21 inches long. The first letter stands for fluorescent, then wattage (13W) then the T5 is the end prong type which is most critical.
T5 and T8 are common.
For germacidal bulbs the first letter will be G. Don't buy those they output 254nm and will be very bad.
You will most likely want a BLB bulb. That is UV with filter. A BL bulb will be white or clear.
So if I guessed correctly, this may work

Yes, I am basically asking for help to source UV bulbs (365nm) that will fit a Kino Flo Diva Light 401.
