It helps reduce acquired hospital infections.
For example, in the United States, the CDC estimates that about 1.7 million hospital infections cause or contribute to 99,000 deaths a year. These infections have an estimated annual cost of $33 billion.
Disinfection of UVC in hospitals.
Ultraviolet Irradiation Germicide (UVGI) has been used for more than 50 years in hospitals and other industries, such as water treatment. UVC germicidal energy is effective in penetrating the cell membrane of microorganisms causing irreparable DNA damage as a result of sterilization of these microorganisms.
Eliminates shaded areas for more effective disinfection.
The mobile units/disinfection systems of the UV room are effective but require multiple positioning throughout the room to eliminate “shaded areas” that block the UV light sterilization capability. In this process, time and resources are used in moving the system through the room and, in some cases, in preparing the room for additional treatments. The ASEPT.2X UV disinfection system eliminates shadows using primary and secondary units by bombarding high-contact areas with direct UVC energy throughout the room.
Tested with Clostridium difficile, VRE & MRSA
Sanuvox ASEPT.2X Mobile UV Disinfection System uses wireless interconnected primary and secondary units that sterilize a conventional room in less than 10 minutes.
No other medical UV disinfection system can treat a patient or operating room as efficiently as the Sanuvox ASEPT.2X system.
