New UV room sanitizer showcased at AORN conference

April 3, 2023

At the Association for Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) Global Surgical Conference and Expo 2023, UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) will showcase the new UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer --- now equipped with UV Smart Connect cloud communications technology. The new UV Smart Connect technology accelerates the efficiency of proven UV room disinfection in fast-paced healthcare settings, such as operating rooms, by simplifying device use. The new UVDI-360 features the same patented UV-C technology independently proven to inactivate 99.99% of 35 microorganisms in five minutes at a distance of eight feet.

The UV Smart Connect smart 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. 

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. 

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

“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. The new UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer with UV Smart Connect ensures they do not have to.”
