New UV-C-Reflective Wall Coating Dramatically Reduces Disinfection Times for TRU-D Device
Date:5/10/2013

reduced" said Chuck Dunn , president of Lumalier, maker of TRU-D. "This is a new and highly valuable component for hospitals using TRU-D, as it allows a faster turnaround of patient areas without loss of confidence in complete terminal disinfection."

It has been previously reported that standard approaches to environmental cleaning have proven inadequate with studies showing that 50 percent or more of hospital surfaces go untouched during terminal room disinfection. It is also well-documented that these pathogens, and others such as vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, can persist on environmental surfaces for days, weeks and even months. This can lead to the transmission of these hardy pathogens from one patient to another via the contaminated hands of health care personnel or environmental surfaces in patient areas. Previously published data has supported the use of TRU-D as a complement to a hospital's comprehensive cleaning and disinfection program for effective environmental disinfection in order to reduce these health care-associated infections.

According to the study, the wall coating is similar in appearance to a common interior latex paint and is applied as such (by brush, roller or spray), but it is formulated with inorganic oxides, polymer binders and functional additives with chemical structures that are minimally absorbent of UV-C, and therefore produce a much higher UV reflectivity (65 percent) versus standard paint, which has a low 3 to 7 percent UV reflectivity.

UVC360™ Reflective Wall Coating from Lumacept will be featured in booth 1923 at the 40th annual APIC Conference in Fort Lauderdale.  For information about TRU-D SmartUVC, UVC360 Reflective Wall Coating from Lumacept, and all third-party studies published on the device, visit www.TRU-D.com.
