Streamlined Room Disinfection Workflow

New UV Smart Connectsmart communications technology simplifies UV room disinfection workflow by automating device data transfer, reporting and device health notifications to UVDI’s cloud-based operator portal. Automating data reporting required in Healthcare facilities eliminates time-consuming labor for busy Healthcare professionals.

Rapid, Effective Operating Room Disinfection

The new UVDI-360 is independently proven in peer-reviewed, published hospital studies to disinfect Operating Rooms between surgeries, during outbreaks and for end-of-day terminal cleaning.1,2 The UVDI-360’s recommended room treatment time for sporicidal disinfection of an average-sized Operating Room is only 15 minutes, with proprietary UV-C dose confirmation technology, UV Dose Verify™, to set custom usage protocols as needed.

Independently Proven Performance at Real-World Times and Distances

As Candida auris and Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) surge, the new UVDI-360 features independently proven 99.99% inactivation of 35 microorganisms in 5 minutes at 8 feet distance – and SARS-CoV-2 at 12 feet distance. The UVDI-360 is also independently proven to inactivate 99% of Candida auris, which can withstand many chemical disinfectants3, in 10 minutes at 8 feet and 99.99% inactivation in 20 minutes at 8 feet distance.

"UVDI is committed to helping all Healthcare professionals as they confront surging MDRO threats amidst unprecedented staffing challenges," stated Peter Veloz, CEO, UVDI. "When it comes to advanced UV room disinfection, Healthcare facilities should not have to accept tradeoffs between independently proven efficacy, rapid room turnover and ease of use.
