Diversey’s MoonBeam3 Disinfection System Wins Award

Diversey has received the 2017 Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) Innovation Award for its MoonBeam3 Disinfection System, a device that uses powerful ultraviolet (UVC) technology to kill pathogens on high-touch surfaces. The annual innovation award recognizes products, processes and technology advancements that help improve patient outcomes. Designed to be used in conjunction with manual cleaning and disinfection, the MoonBeam3 system’s three adjustable arms allow users to target the UVC dose, taking disinfection to the next level.

The arms each generate a broad umbrella (a 7 foot by 11 foot area) of intense, 254-nanometer wavelength UVC light to quickly kill pathogens. The system has been third-party tested and demonstrates three-to five-log reductions in harmful pathogens such as MRSA, VRE, MDR Gram negative bacteria, and norovirus in as little as 3 minutes and C. diff spores in as little as 10 minutes.

Weighing less than 40 pounds, the MoonBeam3 system is ultra-portable, enabling environmental services professionals to disinfect even tight spaces like patient restrooms. It also incorporates a number of safety features, including infrared motion sensors, proximity sensors and a physical accelerometer. The bright yellow cover acts as a safety cone to alert staff and visitors that the device is in use, and as a remote control that starts the device from outside of the room and automatically stops the cycle if entry or motion is detected.
