What sets UV disinfection apart from other sanitation methods?
Spectra254: There are some basic features of UVC light disinfection that make it a particularly effective choice. UVC
light disinfection systems kill airborne and surface pathogens quickly and effectively and are safe for patients and staff.
When combined with terminal cleaning, UVC light disinfection offers a fast, yet effective method and can easily be added
to an existing infection control protocol. UVC terminates pathogens on a molecular level.
Tru-D: Traditionally, hospitals have relied on manual cleaning processes to disinfect patient rooms and surgical suites.
However, studies have shown these processes to be less than 100 percent effective due to human error. Another method
utilizes hydrogen peroxide
vapors, which may be caustic to
delicate instruments and takes
more than four times longer than
UV to complete disinfection,
prolonging room turnover and
reducing hospital productivity.
When directly compared with
this method, Tru-D SmartUVC
was easier to use, had significantly shorter cycle times, could be
administered by personnel with
only limited training and did not
require monitoring by personnel
during the process.
Xenex: Xenex Germ-Zapping
Robots™ quickly destroy
bacteria and pathogens using
mercury-free xenon bulbs and
no toxic chemicals. The robots
bathe the room in UV light and
don't harm equipment in the
OR. Additionally, Xenex robots
offer short cycle times ( 5 minutes) and ease of use allows for
seamless integration into hospital
Recent analysis at Lowell
General Hospital determined
that the addition of Sodexo-provided nightly housekeeping
in the OR combined with use
of the Xenex Germ-Zapping
Robot™ has reduced surgical
site infections (SSIs). As part
of a performance improvement
program targeting SSIs at Lowell
General, the hospital dedicated
a Sodexo staff member to ensure
the best possible cleaning and
disinfection of all ORs on a
nightly basis. Use of the Xenex
Germ-Zapping Robot™ and
this staff member led to excellent improvements. The rates of
certain SSIs were cut almost in
half, a significant achievement in

Advancing UVC Technology for Better Health
In today’s healthcare world, the challenge of doing more
with less is very real; higher “HAI’s” - increased Protocols,
More Patients - Less Staff, all while maintaining the highest
standards of managed care.
Being practical has become a priority.
SPECTRA254 decontamination systems offer the five
things you want most in a UVC disinfection system:
• The highest UVC dosage levels leading to greater
• Rapid room turn-around times facilitated by easy-to-use
• Automated Data entry to eliminate the potential for
• Quality and Reliability on a daily basis, supported by an
industry first 3 Year Warranty
• The solution with the lowest total cost of ownership (TOC)
SPECTRA254 systems are the practical approach to
UVC disinfection in healthcare, with systems that are
performance assured, easy-to-use, cost effective and
provide a feature-set of applications and benefits that
typically only come at a much higher price.
SPECTRA254, by taking the practical approach, continues to
advance the state of UVC technology for better health care.
