CS Medical Enters Distribution Agreement with AirClean Systems

CS Medical has announced a distribution agreement with AirClean Systems to offer the AirClean UV Light Box. The UV Light Box is just an example of when collaboration between companies can provide a solution in a time of need. Shortwave UV light has been used for years to decontaminate surfaces. The growing need to decontaminate N95 respirators has placed shortwave UV light as an alternative to other chemical based methods. AirClean Systems has been manufacturing workstations with shortwave light for more than 20 years. CS Medical scientists and engineers worked with AirClean Systems engineers to take the known research data and apply it. The collaboration between AirClean Systems and CS Medical has developed the UV light box for decontamination of N95 respirators.

CS Medical and AirClean Systems have been working together for more than 10 years to deliver solutions for proper ultrasound probe storage with the CleanShield Ultrasound Probe Storage Cabinets.

“The UV light box is another example of how small businesses can work together and provide solutions to emerging health care problems. CS Medical is committed to helping health care in this time of need and with this partnership we provide another piece to the overall solution of risk reduction.” stated Mark Leath, president of CS Medical LLC.

The UV Light Box is available in two widths and provide the decontamination of N95 respirators in a total cycle time of 60 minutes, 30 minutes per side. For more information, contact CS Medical at (877) 255-9472 or email the team at
