Germ-zapping robot available for mobile equipment
The product is meant for quick disinfection of reusable mobile equipment such as wheelchairs, workstations and ventilators. The pod is collapsible, mobile and can be positioned in a hallway. It provides 360 degrees of UV light coverage over devices that can be difficult to clean.
“Studies have found alarming levels of bacteria on mobile equipment like workstations, IV pumps, pulse oximeters, isolettes, and even patient charts,” said Mark Stibich, chief scientific officer and co-founder of Xenex. “We believe this is a major step forward for room disinfection and patient safety.”
Xenex is demonstrating its new LightStrike Disinfection Pod this week at the 44th Annual Conference of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology in booth 536.
