Mobile UV Room Sterilizer MRS33-8 uses 360 degree safety motion sensors and features eight 33" UVC lamps optically centered around a highly polished reflector for maximum germicidal UV intensity. System controls are located directly on the unit, which allows utilization of a touch-screen with 3 pre-programmed disinfection cycles, and the option to manually set disinfection time.
These mobile ultraviolet units utilize eight UV lamps and are designed for operating rooms, sterile areas, laboratories, unoccupied patient rooms, clean rooms and all other applications where permanent UV fixtures are not practical. Each mobile UV unit is equipped with casters for maximum portability.
German researchers found that viruses and bacteria, including VRE, MRSA, TB, C.diff and Streptococcus can survive for months on dry surfaces. These pathogens are frequently found in patients with nosocomial infections. In the hospital environment, surfaces with which hands come in contact are often contaminated with nosocomial pathogens, and may serve as vectors for cross-transmission. Contaminated hands can transfer germs to five more surfaces or 14 other subjects and can also be the source of recontaminating the surface."Compliance rates of healthcare workers in hand hygiene are known to be around 50%. Due to the overwhelming evidence of low compliance with hand hygiene, the risk from contaminated surfaces cannot be overlooked.” said the researchers.
