Groundbreaking UK Study Confirms Significant Reduction in Hospital Superbug Pathogens with TRU-D SmartUVC Disinfection Robot
Date:7/18/2013

NOTTINGHAM, England, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent study titled "First UK evaluation of an automated ultraviolet-C room decontamination device (TRU-D™)" confirms the effectiveness of TRU-D SmartUVC™ in eliminating common superbugs in health care environments.

The study was conducted by the Department of Clinical Microbiology and Infection Prevention and the Control Department at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust's QMC campus in Nottingham, England, and was published in the Journal of Hospital Infection (N. Mahida, et al., 2013). The research concluded that when delivering a measured and consistent UV-C dose in a cleaned, unoccupied patient room, TRU-D reduced MRSA, MRA and VRE pathogens by 99.99 percent. Additionally, the study complements the ease of use and transporting the device, as well as its rapid disinfection time.

TRU-D was the only device utilized in the study. Short for Total Room Ultraviolet Disinfector, TRU-D – the signature product of Memphis-based Lumalier – is the only portable UV disinfection system on the market that precisely measures reflected UV-C emissions with Sensor360™ to automatically calculate the pathogen-lethal UV dose required for proper and consistent disinfection of health care environments. A proper dose of UV-C light modifies the DNA structure of an infectious cell so it cannot reproduce and therefore cannot colonize and spread.

After a hospital room is cleaned using traditional methods, TRU-D is rolled into the room to "finish the job." Setup is fast and easy and does not require input of room measurements or covering of windows and vents. The machine is turned on from outside the room using a handheld remote. From a single placement near the center of the room, its patented Sensor360™ technology instantly analyzes the unique cont
