Air Surface Disinfection Unit (ASDU)

Product Use

Daily DISINFECTION of DEADLY PATHOGENS

The ASDU will produce a high level of disinfection on all surfaces exposed to the Far-UV Sterilray™ lamp and will disinfect the air in the room with ‘kill-on-the-fly’ demonstrated capability.

The ASDU is ideally suited for nightly disinfection of surfaces and air, but it can also provide disinfection between room occupation throughout the day.

Technology

MOST UV PRODUCTS DEACTIVATE PATHOGENS…FAR-UV DESTROYS PATHOGENS.

Far-UV Sterilray™ Technology is up to 1,000 times more effective than germicidal UV-C.

The ASDU’s very high photon energy actually breaks and destroys the outer membrane and protein molecules of microorganisms, whereas UV-C only deactivates replication.

The quicker action time of Far-UV Sterilray™ makes single-pass kill possible in HVAC and surface disinfection.

Advantages

  • Rotating lamp and power supply reduce the need for multiple units.
  • Dry, chemical-free disinfection.
  • Green Clean-environmentally friendly.
  • Instant off with motion detectors.
  • No mercury or other dangerous materials in the lamp.
  • No labor required; operation controlled by room switch (delay timer).
  • Produces high-level disinfection of room air and exposed surfaces.
  • Destroys surface pathogens (MRSA, C.Difficile, VRE) that routinely compromise healthcare environment.
  • Far-UV Sterilray™ produces up to 1000 times greater destruction than any other UV sources.
  • Level of disinfection proportional to run time; 7 hours produces >6 log kill on floor level surfaces.
  • Provides a high level of disinfection between room occupancy during the day and total disinfection each night.
  • Uses Far-UV Sterilray™ that is being tested for safe use on skin as opposed to UVC which can cause erythema.
  • Center of Room Ceiling Mount.
  • Kills airborne microbes in <0 . 2 seconds of exposure.
  • Disinfects outside makeup air on first pass.
  • Kills any microbes on exposed surfaces in the room facing towards the ASDU.
  • Reduces installation costs: ONE unit per OR is sufficient.

Benefits

  • Comfort in knowing that pathogen removal has occurred in a convenient process 365 days/year.
  • Increased confidence that germs are being reduced proactively whenever the ASDU is in use.
  • Quick, high-level disinfection of room air and all exposed objects with the flick of a switch.
  • Can be used each night for maximum disinfection or during the day to achieve a high level of disinfection between room occupation.
  • Reduces HAl’s and SSI’s cases saving cost associated with patient care expenses.
  • Supports a comprehensive decontamination approach and improves or complements existing manual application methods for cleaning.

Locations

  • Operating rooms.
  • Emergency rooms.
  • Decontamination rooms.
  • High-Risk patient rooms.
  • Critical use restrooms.
  • Critical care rooms that need routine but assurance of high-level disinfection of air and surfaces.
  • Critical care rooms used with contact patients.
  • Any health care rooms that need assurance of a very high level of disinfection of microorganisms between each day’s use.

While not meant to replace existing cleaning protocols, ceiling-mounted Sterilray’s ASDU devices can help support a comprehensive decontamination approach and improve or complement existing manual application methods for cleaning and disinfection.  Recent studies suggest that FAR·UV Sterilray™ disinfection may be more effective when used after traditional cleaning protocols. Therefore, cleaning must remain an important part of terminal room disinfection.
