UVC Medical Device Disinfection

Our patented technology provides a fast, safe and efficient method for disinfecting medical tubing – even during use. 

The issue with Biofilm

Biofilm can be formed on the inner surfaces of medical tubing within 24 hours. 

It provides a perfect breeding ground for pathogenic microorganisms is very difficult to eradicate in places where traditional disenfectants cannot be used, such as venous catheters or endotracheal tubes in use. 

Consequences

In the US, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) accounts for about 1.7 millions infections and 100,000 deaths each year.

 

Our Technology Saves Lives!

Live application

Disinfection of the inner surface of catheters and endotracheal tubes during use

Highly effective

Kills all types of bacteria

Safe for the patient

No light exposure to the patient (medical tubes are non-transparent in UV-C spectral region)

Saves lives

Reduces patients morbidity and mortality

Increases capacity

Reduces hospitalization time

Reduced risk of infection

Protects life and welfare of healthcare staff

A Unique Value Proposition

Disinfection while in-use

Our patented technology facilitates disinfection of the inner surfaces of Catheters and endotracheal tubes while these are in use.

UVC light has been used for more than 100 years for disinfection of drinking water. UVC disinfection is a physical process where the UVC light modify/destroys the DNA of microbial cells such that cell multiplication is prohibited.

Kill all types of bacteria

Kills all types of bacteria - Broad spectrum efficacy kills all types of bacteria and virus including antibiotic resistant pathogens and biofilm

UVC – disinfection works both in air and saline solutions and is effective against all types of bacteria and fungi – including drug-resistant bacteria. 

No light exposure

Our patented light delivery system ensures that the patient is not exposed to UVC-light - even during in-use application.

Shielded exposure of UV light. No light exposure to  patient  tissue and staff.

Reduce Mortality

In the US, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) accounts for about 1.7 millions infections and 100,000 deaths each year. Approximately 150.000 HAIs are related to venous catheters and ventilated patients. According to WHO, one in ten patients worldwide suffers from HAI.

Frequent and efficicent disenfection of venous catheters and endotrachial tubes can reduce patient morbidity and mortality.

No Use Of Disinfectants and Antibiotics

Well-known kill mechanism used for disinfection in more than 100 years. No development of resistant pathogens.
