Xenex Disinfection Services LLC Key Developments

St. Luke’s Hospital Deploys Xenex Germ-Zapping Robot to Enhance Patient Safety by Destroying Superbugs that can Cause Infections

St. Luke’s Hospital has taken a leap into the future with the installation of a LightStrike™ Germ-Zapping Robot™ that destroys hard-to-kill bugs in hard-to-clean places. The robot uses Full Spectrum™ pulsed xenon ultraviolet (UV) light to quickly destroy bacteria, viruses, fungi and bacterial spores. The portable disinfection system is effective against even the most dangerous pathogens, including Clostridium difficile (C.diff), norovirus, influenza, Ebola and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, better known as MRSA. UV light has been used for disinfection for decades. The Xenex LightStrike Germ-Zapping Robot is a new technology that utilizes pulsed xenon (not mercury bulbs) to create germicidal UV light. Pulsed xenon emits high intensity UVC light which penetrates the cell walls of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, mold, fungus and spores. Their DNA is fused, rendering them unable to reproduce or mutate, effectively killing them on surfaces without contact. The portable Xenex system disinfects a typical patient or procedure room in five minute cycles without warm-up or cool-down times. It can be used in any department and in any unit within a healthcare facility, including isolation rooms, operating rooms, general patient care rooms, contact precaution areas, emergency rooms, bathrooms and public spaces. The Xenex pulsed xenon UV disinfection system has been credited by health care facilities across the U.S. for helping them reduce their infection rates significantly. Several hospitals have published their C.diff, MRSA and surgical site infection rate reduction studies in peer-reviewed journals - showing infection rate reductions in excess of 70%. Over 400 hospitals, Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense facilities in the U.S., Canada, Africa, UK, Japan and Europe are using Xenex robots, which are also in use in skilled nursing facilities, ambulatory surgery centers and long-term acute care facilities.

ab Medica Chooses Xenex Lightstrike™ Germ-Zapping Robots™ to Disinfect Healthcare Facilities in Italy

ab medic and Xenex Disinfection Services, the market leader in ultraviolet (UV) light room disinfection technology, announced that ab medica spa is the exclusive distributor of Xenex LightStrike™ Germ-Zapping Robots™ at hospitals and healthcare facilities in Italy. Infections caused by superbugs like Clostridium difficile (C.diff), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are a global problem and Xenex’s pulsed xenon UV light robots are a proven solution to destroy these deadly microorganisms before they can harm patients and healthcare workers. Xenex robots take room disinfection to the next level by pulsing xenon, an environmentally-friendly noble gas, to create Full Spectrum™, high intensity UV light that quickly destroys infectious germs. Multiple hospitals utilizing Xenex robots have published peer-reviewed patient infection reduction outcome studies showing 50-100% decreases in C.diff, MRSA and Surgical Site infection rates in highly regarded scientific journals. The Xenex robot is designed for speed, effectiveness and ease of use, which allows hospital cleaning staff to operate the robot without disrupting hospital operations. With a proven five-minute disinfection cycle for C.diff and less than 90 seconds for other pathogens like MRSA, VRE, and Acenitobacter, the robot can disinfect 30-62 hospital rooms per day (according to Xenex customers), including: patient rooms, operating rooms, equipment rooms, emergency rooms, intensive care units and public areas. LightStrike is ideal for use in hospitals worldwide because Xenex has patented protocols for use in multi-bed wards. The robot’s speed enables it to disinfect areas and rooms quickly so it can be used throughout the entire facility, including multi-bed wards, to enhance patient and healthcare worker safety.
