See the light in the war on infection

Traditional cleaning and sanitizing removes the majority of pathogens throughout your facility, but some harmful organisms can survive in the environment long after cleaning.

UV light works by interfering with cell division that either destroys pathogens immediately or prevents them from reproducing.1

40%

increased risk of infection when admitted to an ICU room previously occupied by patients with MRSA or VRE2

$25 billion to $31.5 billion

in medical cost savings when HAI prevention practices are adopted3

Pathogens have nowhere to hide with UV light

In the air and on surfaces, including mobile devices, our versatile UV disinfection devices have you covered, killing up to 99.99% of airborne and surface pathogens4—from patient rooms and common areas to cell phones and tablets.

SURFACE DISINFECTION

Solaris Lytbot pulsed Xenon UV light

Helps reduce dangerous pathogens from surfaces

Best-in-class SpectraLyt technology uses pulsed xenon power to eliminate pathogens on high-touch surfaces in as little as three minutes. Its high-frequency bulb flash rate and Directionally Pulsed Xenon (DPX) light rapidly disinfect the whole room by destroying vegetative and spore-forming pathogens.

Efficacy by the numbers7

  • Up to 99.95% reduction of SARS-CoV-2 surrogate (Coronavirus 229E)
  • Up to 99.99% reduction against MRSA
  • Up to 99.4% reduction of C. difficile in all areas of a patient room
  • Up to 99.99% proven efficacy against VRE

AIR DISINFECTION

S400 portable air disinfection system

Kills viruses and eliminates bacteria, mold, odor and VOCs7

Successful healthcare facilities are turning from HEPA filtration only to UV pathogen-killing technology, which stops smaller pathogens. The S400 air disinfection system uses UVC energy to kill airborne particulates and advanced HEPA and carbon filtration to remove allergens, odors and other VOC particulates.

  • Reduces airborne particulates by as much as 99.97%7
  • Quiet 24/7 UVC air scrubbing
  • Safe for patients and staff to be in the room

Efficacy by the numbers7

  • Kills 99.9% airborne mold, Cladosporium cladosporioide
  • Kills 99.99% airborne bacteria including C. difficile, MRSA and Streptococcus species and more
  • Kills 99.9995% airborne surrogate norovirus

MOBILE DEVICE DISINFECTION

ExpressPro® rapid UV disinfection station*

Kills up to 99.99% of pathogens on surfaces in seconds7

Portable electronic devices are now a common sight in healthcare settings with 87% of clinicians using a smartphone or tablet in their workplace. But only 13–37% report cleaning and disinfecting them regularly.8,9 ExpressPro is speciallly designed to quickly and effectively disinfect mobile devices and other non-porous objects.7

Efficacy by the numbers7

Kills in 30 seconds:

  • SARS-CoV-2
  • MRSA
  • C. difficile
  • VRE
