It might. The range starts at 380 which is a little high, bit it does have a light at 405 so that leads me to believe it might do OK at that wavelength. You would need the external cable they talk about.
How much are they? And what are the tolerances? If it something built for schools without any real tolerances it might not be usable.

Check out the second one, has a range starting at 200nm. Comes as a full kit and software and is real time. Just over $700. The first one is hand held and wireless just over $300.

Have you ever looked at deuterium lamps? They are made specifically for UV smooth out put but holy crap the prices
