Intellego Technologies UVC Dosimeters

UVC Dosimeters by Intellego Technologies are helping health care facilities improve their UV-C disinfection processes with easy-to-use, color-changing dose indicators. Available in two formats (2.5” x 3.5” cards and 1” dots), the dosimeters are placed on or adjacent to equipment and surfaces prior to UV-C disinfection. The yellow indicator reacts to UV-C exposure (254 nm) and changes color so staff can truly see if a desired level of germicidal irradiation has been delivered. UVC Dosimeters provide visible evidence of proper UV-C disinfection protocols, lamp performance and placement, and the confidence that your OR is ready for the next procedure.
