Skytron’s Ultraviolet C (UVC) provides an effective method of microorganism inactivation for contaminated air and surfaces. UVC disinfection technology has been in use since the early 1900s for municipal water supplies and Skytron’s UVC infection control devices are a powerful, modern, mobile solution to reduce HAI’s.
UVC energy is a wavelength range of Ultraviolet energy spanning 200-280 nanometers (nm). Skytron’s UVC sanitization robots specifically employ the highly germicidal 253.7 nm bandwidth to cause photochemical damage to cellular DNA and virus RNA. This biological damage inactivates the cell by preventing replication and therefore infection capability. Germicidal efficacy is determined by the overall dose of UV disinfection light, which is a product of lamp output (i.e., intensity) and exposure duration.
Traditional, manual hospital cleaning protocols are often insufficient in stopping the spread of pathogens and leave room for error in technique and chemical application. With the use of UVC disinfection in hospitals or any facility, the Skytron portfolio ensures the correct germicidal dose is thoroughly delivered to all surfaces, lowering infection rates and costs.
