Using UVC Technology in Acute Healthcare
The rise of multidrug-resistant organisims (MDROs) poses a siginificant challenge for acute hospitals. Surfacide’s UVC disinfection technology emits high-intensity UV-C light to disrupt the DNA and RNA of vegetative forms of bacteria, some fungi, and lipid viruses, inactivating the organisms.
What’s in your room?
50% of high-touch surfaces are not fully cleaned during terminal cleaning, leading to a shift to no-touch adjunct technlogies like UVC disinfection.1,2
A patient room after discharge of a previous occupant colonized with MDROs has been shown to have many residual MDROs on high-touch surfaces.
The FDA requires 99.9999% disinfection (6-log reduction) for UVC disinfection to inactivate vegetative bacteria, some fungi, and viruses, including Candida auris.
Combat MDROs with Helios
After manual cleaning, Surfacide Helios UVC disinfection cycles were nearly 2 times as effective as manual cleaning alone. Setting the industry standard by achieving 99.9999% disinfection with less time and labor, Surfacide maximizes the power of UVC disinfection in a proven, simple-to-use, and easily transported 3-emitter system1.Learn More
Not all UVC is created equal. Surfacide’s Helios UVC System is the only technology to use three emitters in a single cycle to reduce shadows, distance, and time.
A trio of emitters operate together to reduce shadows and direct more UVC energy on more surfaces.
The system efficiently delivers more energy to more surfaces through the use of multiple light emitters
Helios does not require robot repositioning, resulting in shorter cycle times and increased staff productivity.
Achieve 99.9999% UVC disinfection in minutes with three simple steps
After the standard terminal cleaning process, position the Surfacide Helios UVC system into the space with the three .emitters in a wide array of evidence-based configurations.
Place the safety motion sensors at all entryways and complete the safety checklist on the handheld tablet.
The system will automatically calculate cycle length to ensure an appropriate dose for disinfection. Safely initiate the disinfection cycle using the tablet.
The best housekeeping in the world will miss a crack, but supplementing our cleaning with this technology differentiates us. Surfacide’s log reduction is better than anything else you’ll see.

For me, it’s a partnership. Surfacide’s customer service goes a long way.

The shortest difference between 2 points is a straight line. Surfacide has the only system with the shortest line between 2 points because of their 3-emitter system. It works.
