Sanuvox Releases the Aseptix Dual UV Sterilization System to Help Reduce Nosocomial (HAI) Infections in Hospital Environments
Date:11/20/2013

Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

The Sanuvox Aseptix Dual UV Sterilization System uses a primary and secondary unit to sterilize high-touch surfaces with ultraviolet ‘C’ energy controlling (6 log reduction) drug-resistant microorganisms such as MRSA and C. difficile in as little as 7 minutes in a standard patient hospital room. The two unit operation dramatically lowers the sterilization time typically associated with UV sterilization while achieving exceptional deactivation rates by minimizing shadow areas through the use of the two unit system.

Studies show that even with the best terminal cleaning practices, an operating or patient room can remain the source of many potential harmful drug-resistant microorganisms as manual cleaning effectively cleans less than 50% of surfaces. It is estimated that HAIs (Hospital Acquired Infections) cost the healthcare system approx. 10 billion dollars annually in uninsurable costs where one of every 20 patients who are admitted to a US hospital falls victim to an infection they contracted while there.

UV sterilization (UVC 254nm wavelength) has been used in hospitals for decades and recently, commercially available mobile UV systems are used to sterilize the patient room following the terminal cleaning process. However, the limitation to UV sterilization is that it is a “line-of-sight” technology. UV sterilization is ineffective in shadowed areas where the light cannot reach. This can include the other side of high-touch areas such as a remote or call button or the other side of a bed or bed rail. As such, conventional UV systems require multiple positioning within a room to lessen the chances of shadow areas that block the sterilizing ability of the UV light. In doing so, time and resources are spent moving the system around the room and preparing the room for additional treatments.

The Aseptix UV System has been tested by ATS Labs in Minnesota USA to show
