Reducing airborne infection with UVC technology

Cost effective technology for combating hospital infection

Elevated airborne bacteria causes increased surgical site infection

Air quality in operating rooms is a critical factor in reducing SSI's

Joint replacement procedures performed in rooms with over 50 CFU/m³ airborne bacterial colony forming units per cubic meter were 2.6x times as likely to have postoperative SSI than those with 20 CFU/m³.

Surgical site infections impose a  burden on our healthcare system

Many factors have been identified that contribute to the risk of SSIs; Patient factors play a part however some factors are modifiable such as elevated airborne bacterial colony forming units.

What is UVC light, and how does it kill germs?

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a form of light, invisible to the human eye, that exists on the electromagnetic spectrum between X-rays and visible light.


UVC wavelengths are between 200 and 300 nanometers, making them germicidal – meaning they are capable of inactivating microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses and protozoa.
