A research team from the Hospital of Saint Raphael and the Yale University School of Medicine have demonstrated that Lumalier's Tru-D device reduces aerobic colony counts on high-touch surfaces in patient rooms.
TRU-D is an automated, remotely operated UV disinfection instrument which uses Sensor360 technology to scan the targeted space and automatically compensate every variable in real time to assure disinfection of all environmental surfaces.
The device also gets self-adjusted to the size and content dynamics of any room to deliver a dose of cleansing germicidal UV energy to the space.
The researchers claim two previous studies also evaluated the ability of the same automated UV light device to decontaminate surfaces in laboratory settings and hospital rooms.
The Yale study also confirmed that the levels of reduction in vegetative bacteria and C difficile spores observed in their study were similar to those reported previously.
