Tru-D SmartUVC Proven to Provide Reduction in Patient Infections

In an abstract presented at IDWeek 2016, researchers presented findings on the effectiveness of Tru-D in reducing patient infections. Short for “total room ultraviolet disinfection,” Tru-D guarantees complete room disinfection operating from a single position with a single cycle of UVC light energy. According to the researchers, in the past
