Tru-D SmartUVC

Published data from third-party studies confirm that Tru-D SmartUVC is an effective tool that provides touchless germicidal disinfection of contaminated environmental surfaces. The automated, portable UV disinfection system measures reflected UVC emissions with a component called Sensor360 to automatically calculate the pathogen-lethal UV dose required for each room, dynamically compensating for room size, shape and other dose altering variables such as the position of contents, windows, blinds and doors. In a recently published article, “Decontamination with Ultraviolet Radiation to Prevent Recurrent Clostridium difficile Infection in 2 Roommates in a Long-Term Care Facility” (Infection Control and hospital Epidemiology, 05/2012), researchers concluded that Tru-D SmartUVC reduced the number of organisms in places that are easily missed or inaccessible to human cleaning.
