A new independent study demonstrates that the Steriliz R-D Rapid Disinfector is a proven ultraviolet-C (UV-C) disinfection solution for combating pathogens that cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).

Published in the March issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, the peer-reviewed study of UV-C disinfection systems detailed the pilot testing and experiences of Vancouver General Hospital and Rochester General Hospital. According to the study, the hospitals selected the R-D Rapid Disinfector because of its shortest average treatment time, dose-based monitoring, metrics-driven data tracking, pause and reposition capability to illuminate shadowed areas, and easy maneuverability.

Steriliz’s R-D Disinfector is the only UV-C system available that measures, records and reports data for hospitals to gauge effectiveness. The R-D uses patented remote sensors that measure and ensure delivery of published UV-C doses at all points of disinfection. The R-D works in conjunction with manual cleaning to eradicate bacteria, viruses and spores, such as MRSA, VRE and Clostridium difficile.
