White Paper: Efficacy of UV Lighting

Efficacy of an ultraviolet-A lighting system for continuous decontamination of health care−associated pathogens on surfaces

Contaminated environmental surfaces are an important source of transmission of health care−associated pathogens.1 Unfortunately, performance of manual cleaning and disinfection is often suboptimal. Automated room decontamination devices such as ultraviolet-C (UV-C) light devices can be effective as an adjunct to routine cleaning.1 However, UV-C room decontamination devices cannot be used when people are present and re-contamination occurs quickly after device operation.2 Thus, there is a need for effective approaches that provide continuous and safe decontamination of surfaces while people are present
