Disinfection Using Ultraviolet Radiation to Advance Environmental Safety in Healthcare

Nov. 21, 2022

R-Zero hosted a webinar on the use of UV-C disinfection in healthcare facilities featuring Dr. Edward Nardell of Harvard Medical School and Dr. David Brenner of Columbia University Medical Center.

Drawing from their shared expertise in the field of disinfection using ultraviolet germicidal light, these experts discussed:

  • Achieving continuous, autonomous disinfection via both well-developed and emerging UV-C technologies
  • Understanding the safety and efficacy considerations of Upper Room UVGI and Far-UVC
  • Implementing germicidal UV lamps and fixtures to enhance existing HVAC and filtration
