CHEMICAL FREE UV-C ROOM DISINFECTOR (PATENT PENDING)
The Dolphin Care Chemical Free UV-C Room Disinfector rapidly disinfects contaminated rooms without use of chemicals by radiating UV-C light from units placed on the floor. This UV-C radiation shines through air and on surfaces, destroying the DNA and RNA of affected bacteria, fungi, and viruses. This includes elimination of:
- MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
- ESBL producing Gram-negative bacteria (Extended spectrum beta-lactamase)
- Multi-drug resistant strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MDRPA)
- VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococci)
The main unit is supplemented by two smaller satellite units that can be placed to ensure disinfection of blind angles, bathrooms, and storage rooms. It takes roughly 15 minutes of use to eliminate the most common varieties of antibiotic resistant bacteria, and about an hour for spore-forming Clostridium species.
This timeframe should be compared to the time typically spent using chemical evaporators, which require taping of windows and doors, and which render a room unusable for half a day or more.
ELIMINATION OF BACTERIA VIA UV-C RADIATION
Two scientific studies done by the Department of Clinical Microbiology, Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet in Denmark showed a log 5-6 reduction of resistant facultative and aerobic bacteria at
a 5-meter (16.4-foot) distance from the unit after 15 minutes of irradiation.
In the first study, testing focused on swabs taken from surfaces in four different outpatient clinics for patients suffering from Cystic Fibrosis. Swabs were taken before and after 30 minutes in-room exposure to high
UV-C radiation. The bacteria present were virtually eliminated.
In the second study, in vitro samples were placed within 5 meters of a source of UV-C radiation. 99,999%
of the bacteria present were killed after 15 minutes of exposure to radiation (bacteria tested included Enterococcus faecium (VRE), Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia). This level of elimination is more than
sufficient for the purpose of room disinfection.
