TRU-D Tested in Most Comprehensive UV Disinfection Study to Date
Date:8/14/2014

DURHAM, N.C., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This past week, a groundbreaking 28-month-long study funded by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention examining the real-world effectiveness of automated UV-C disinfection robot's impact on infection outcomes concluded the data collection phase of the research, with results expected to be published in the second quarter of 2015.

The study by the Duke University Prevention Epicenter Program, "The Benefits of Enhanced Terminal Room (BETR) Disinfection," is the most comprehensive research assessing automated UV-C disinfection completed to date and will present outcomes related to clostridium difficile (C. diff.), methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), multidrug-resistant acinetobacter baumanni and vancomycin-resistant enterococci.

Infection control researchers from Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, have been collecting data across 10 hospitals and 25,000 disinfection cycles for more than 100,000 patient days to determine how UV-C emitting devices capable of measuring a specific UVC dose may improve patient outcomes and the quality of care. TRU-D SmartUVC was the UV disinfection device of choice for the team of researchers and was the sole device used during the study, academic teaching hospital, tertiary care centers, community hospitals and a VA Medical Center.

Previous reports released from the study point to the effectiveness of TRU-D for patient rooms that are disinfected using the robot, as the researchers have seen more than 90 percent of pathogenic bacteria eradicated using only TRU-D with no manual pre-cleaning. In addition, they have determined that devices without patented intuitive technology, like TRU-D's Sensor360, place hospitals at a significant risk of under- or overestimating the time necessa
