UV Clinical is a company specialized in the development of devices using ultra-violet light emitting diodes (UVC – LED) for disinfection of medical tubing. Our competences and experience with the disinfection capabilities of this future new UVC LED disinfection technology are gained through pioneering scientific work starting with adoption and experiments with early market UVC LED technologies.
Our goal is to continuously design, develop and patent disinfection devices that utilize the UVC LED technology and bring these devices close to the patient as separate technical solutions or in interaction with existing medical devices.
We strongly believe that the UVC LED technology will continuously contribute to the future development of novel disinfection applications. This development will accelerate as the LED technology continues to improve in efficiency, extended lifetimes and reduced costs.
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.
UVC – disinfection works both in air and saline solutions and is effective against all types of bacteria and fungi – including drug-resistant bacteria.
Shielded exposure of UV light. No light exposure to patient tissue and staff.
Frequent and efficicent disenfection of venous catheters and endotrachial tubes can reduce patient morbidity and mortality.
