Tru-D is Committed to UVC efficacy.

Lowpressure mercury vapor lamps provide the most efficient delivery of UVC energy for use in the health care environment. The Tru-D device’s bulbs are similar to any lowpressure mercury vapor fluorescent bulb in your facility and pose no danger to staff. 


Thorough Room Disinfection Utilizing Efficient UVC Bulbs

Tru-D bulbs use ultra-low levels of mercury vapor that are consistent with modern fluorescent and compact fluorescent bulbs used throughout buildings around the world. The minute, invisible mercury vapor content is always encapsulated within the bulb; no mercury byproduct is emitted by the bulbs. The Tru-D bulbs are manufactured by Philips Healthcare.  

Tru-D SmartUVC uses Philips Low-Pressure UVC lamps in a single-ended U-tube configuration consistent with modern compact fluorescent lamp designs. Our bulbs contain the same small trace amounts of mercury like CFL bulbs and fluorescents, less than 1/100th of the amount in a mercury thermometer.
