Xenex: Germ-Zapping Robot

Xenex’s portable UV room disinfection system uses pulsed xenon ultraviolet light to quickly destroy the viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus and bacterial spores that cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Not all UV is the same. Xenex is the only company that uses xenon to create UV light – all other UV systems use toxic mercury. As a result, Xenex’s Germ-Zapping Robots produce the only full spectrum UV disinfection that can kill C. diff spores in 5 minutes. The efficacy of the Xenex device has been published in peer-reviewed journals and many healthcare facilities in the U.S. credit it for reductions in their C. diff and MRSA infection rates.
