Far-UV Sterilray™ Pathogen Reduction Box (PRB)

Product Use


Use the Pathogen Reduction Box (PRB) to disinfect high touch items that are frequently passed from person to person.

It will disinfect all surfaces on any object placed inside.

Use to quickly disinfect movable items, TV remotes, pens, glasses, cell phones, etc.

An automatic cut-off timer makes the PRB operation very simple to use.



Far-UV Sterilray™ is a new Far-UV technology that is up to 1,000 times more effective than germicidal UV-C.

The Pathogen Reduction Box uses two lamps over and under an object placed inside on the special plate.

It produces uniform illumination 360 degrees to disinfect all sides and surfaces. 99.999% (log 5) reduction of MRSA, VRE was achieved in tests in just 20 seconds.

The Deluxe model doubles the lamp power with the ability of a 99.99% (log 4) reduction of Clostridium difficile spores.*

Independent Lab Results

The Pathogen Reduction Box (PRB) using Far-UV Sterilray technology was tested in a clinical setting for its effectiveness against MRSA, VRE, and C. difficile spores.

The largest reduction in the smallest amount of time was Clean HA MRSA at 5 seconds of FAR-UV+ exposure with kills of 4 log.

Complete HA MRSA eradication was accomplished in the trials.

The same activity occurred against multiple strains of MRSA, to be specific, the community-associated 300 stain type and ATCC strain 43300.

“The PRB would be practical to use in the eradication of MRSA from small hospital surfaces.”

• 20 Remote controls on the ward were disinfected using the PRB for 60 seconds without adjusting the positioning of the remote control in the PRB.
• 20 Remote controls were sampled for MRSA, VRE, C.diff, and total bacteria before and after PRB treatment.

The data shows a 10 fold reduction of bacteria in patient rooms on remote control surfaces.

This correlates to a greater than 1.5 log reduction or a 98% reduction in aerobic bacteria; limited only by the amount of bacteria on the controls.

Lab studies show that the PRB is capable of reducing 4 logs of MRSA or more.
