Recent Scientific Article Proves Enhanced Terminal Room Disinfection Leads to Decreased HAI Rates

Posted by Tru-D SmartUVC 05.24.16

A recent scientific article in the American Journal of Infection Control by leading researchers reviews the compendium of clinical evidence on and discusses the effectiveness of UV devices for terminal room decontamination. According to the Effectiveness of ultraviolet devices and hydrogen peroxide systems for terminal room decontamination: Focus on clinical trials (Anderson, et al, 2016), two key findings were reported to validate the use and efficacy of no touch UV disinfection robots, such as Tru-D SmartUVC. Further, the researchers stressed the importance of well-controlled, large-scale, randomized, clinical trials versus small-scale before-and-after studies that lack monitoring of other infection prevention practices when comparing and contrasting such devices.

“The most studied device of its kind, and the only UV robot validated by a CDC-funded, randomized, clinical trial, Tru-D pioneered and remains the gold standard in the UV disinfection space,” said Chuck Dunn, president and CEO of Tru-D SmartUVC. “This intensive literature review proves our focus on and dedication to independent, third-party research and validates that Tru-D technology is backed by sound science.”
