The Program Addresses Upcoming Regulatory Changes to USP <797> and <800> With an Affordable, Monthly Disinfection Plan for Pharmacy “Clean Rooms” to Help Achieve Best Practices in Environmental Compliance
(Waukesha, WI and ASHP Booth #710) – June 7, 2023– Surfacide, a leader in UV-C disinfection technology, has announced SURFrx, a new evidence-based, UV-C low-level disinfection program that can achieve up to a 6-log reduction against many of the organisms commonly found on surfaces and in the air in pharmacy sterile compounding rooms. The SURFrx program was designed specifically for pharmacy “clean rooms” as they prepare for the regulatory changes that go into effect for USP 797 and 800 in November of this year.
With drug resistant bacteria, viruses and fungi on the rise1, even “clean rooms” are discovering they need new ways to eradicate organisms. The SURFrx program is a flexible monthly membership subscription that enhances existing cleaning protocols by integrating chemical-free UV-C disinfection technology for both surface and air. The program allows for quick and easy implementation, so there is no need to wait on capital approval to get it up and running immediately. The program includes:
- Custom evaluation and strategy with dedicated implementation specialist
- Surfacide® Helios UV-C robot
- UV-C air disinfection system
- Utilization reports and analytics including pharmaceutical consulting by our industry experts
- Onsite training and ongoing support
“We’re proud to introduce SURFrx as the wave of the future in sterile compounding room disinfection,” said Gunner Lyslo, CEO & Founder of Surfacide. “Pharmacy directors are committed to patient safety and are seeking solutions that will allow them to meet the new and far more stringent requirements of the USP standard. As a leading UV-C disinfection solution for more than a decade in more than 600 healthcare facilities worldwide, we are excited to expand our technology to reach pharmaceutical settings as well.”
SURFrx by Surfacide is proud to debut SURFrx at the upcoming ASHP (American Society of Health System Pharmacists) conference taking place in Baltimore, Maryland June 10-14th. To learn more about the program, stop by booth #710.
