Groundbreaking UK Study Confirms Significant Reduction in Hospital Superbug Pathogens with TRU-D SmartUVC Disinfection Robot

ents, shape and size of the room, then floods the targeted space (both line-of-site and shadowed spaces) with the proper dose of germicidal energy. TRU-D spends whatever time is necessary (usually 20 to 35 minutes) to confidently eliminate infectious germs from contaminated surfaces before shutting down and audibly notifying the operator that disinfection is complete.    

In this UK study, TRU-D was used in six side-rooms in Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust's QMC campus' intensive therapy unit, an operating theater and a ward isolation room with an in-suite bathroom. The device was placed in the middle of the room, and contact plates inoculated with clinical strains of MRSA, MRA, VRE and aspergillus were placed on 15 touch surfaces in both direct and indirect (shadowed) line of sight of TRU-D. After one disinfection cycle, the plates were then reapplied to surfaces directly adjacent to the original plate locations. The study specifically notes TRU-D's capability "to significantly reduce key health care nosocomial pathogens (MRSA, VRE, MRA) in the hospital environment," including the operating theatre; and that advantages include the device's simplicity and limited training needed by staff to operate TRU-D.

Studies show that 50 percent or more of hospital surfaces go untouched during terminal room disinfection.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that health care-associated infections are tied to an estimated 99,000 deaths in the USA each year and represent an estimated $30 billion a year in medical costs. Recently, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control released its first point prevalence survey, which reported that on any given day, about 80,000 patients -- or one in 18 patients -- in European hospitals have acquired at least one health care-associated infection.
