Anne Arundel Medical Center to Improve Patient Safety with Superbug-Slaying Robot TRU-D
Date:3/27/2013

MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Memphis-based Lumalier, maker of TRU-D SmartUVC™, recently delivered its 5-foot-5 germ-killing ultraviolet robot to Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Md., marking well over 100 devices now being deployed in hospitals across the U.S. and Canada as an integral part of their infection-control teams.

Short for Total Room Ultraviolet Disinfector, TRU-D is the signature product of Lumalier – the recognized leader in advanced UV germicidal air disinfection products used across many industries, including health care – and is the only portable UV disinfection system with Sensor360™ technology, which precisely measures reflected UVC emissions and automatically calculates the pathogen-lethal UV dose required for disinfecting health care environments. Results of TRU-D have been supported by multiple independent peer-reviewed studies conducted by leading authorities in infection control and epidemiology.

"TRU-D SmartUVC can achieve 99.99 percent disinfection of bacteria and spores," said Bob Taylor , sales director of TRU-D LLC. "Germicidal light energy generated by TRU-D modifies the DNA structure of an infectious cell so it cannot reproduce, and a cell that cannot reproduce cannot colonize and cannot harm us. It's certainly breakthrough technology that will enhance patient care."

TRU-D allows hospitals to confidently clean their patient environments, from ICUs, patient rooms to surgery suites – killing pathogens, such as influenza, norovirus, Clostridium difficile (C. diff.), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and other pathogens that compromise patient outcomes. Health care providers have traditionally relied on manual cleaning to disinfect a patient room after discharge. However, studies have
