Indigo-Clean Continuous Environmental Disinfection Technology

A new tool in health care disinfection is Indigo-Clean™, a light fixture that uses Continuous Environmental Disinfection technology instead of UV to continuously kill harmful bacteria linked to hospital acquired infections (HAIs). Indigo-Clean™ uses visible light, specifically 405 nanometers (nm), which is absorbed by porphyrin molecules within the bacteria. This produces a chemical reaction that kills the bacteria from the inside, similar to the effects of household bleach. Indigo-Clean™ operates continuously and requires no operator, kills bacteria in the air and on hard and soft surfaces, and complies with all internationally recognized standards for patient safety. The Indigo-Clean™ Clinical Partners Program is open to health care facilities that want to objectively evaluate the technology and share the results with peers.
