Germ-Killing Robots Deployed to the Republic of Liberia To Aid in Battle Against Ebola Virus
Date:8/15/2014

s. In an effort to eliminate Ebola at the source, the use of innovative disinfection technology, such as TRU-D, is crucial to guaranteeing a pathogen-free environment for patients and health care staff.

Dr. Jeffery L. Deal, TRU-D's inventor and a Fellow in the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, will travel to the Republic of Liberia on Monday, Aug. 18 to lead the deployment of both TRU-D units by training hospital staff to operate the devices in a number of hospital environments and monitor progress for successful disinfection.

Deal will join dozens of disease specialists dispatched by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help stop the spread of the largest recorded outbreak of the Ebola virus in history. Both TRU-D units that will be used in the Liberian hospitals were just released from a 28-month-long CDC-funded study conducted by the Duke University Prevention Epicenter Program, the most comprehensive evaluation of the real-world application of UV-C disinfection to date.

"We developed TRU-D SmartUVC technology to combat the devastating effects of hospital acquired infections," Deal said. "Unlike many diseases, Ebola strikes hospital workers more than any other group, making it the ultimate hospital acquired infection."

With TRU-D, health care leaders in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Saudi Arabia are eliminating pathogens like Ebola, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), influenza, norovirus, Clostridium difficile (C. diff.), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) in all types of health care settings, including isolation wards, patient rooms, operating rooms, surgical suites, intensive care units, emergency rooms, public areas and ambulances.

"We know through extensive CDC-funded research specific to TRU-D conducted b
