MoonBeam3 is a highly effective, fast, and truly economical disinfection solution offering unprecedented ability to bring the fight to where it is needed, when it is needed.
Laboratory and in-room testing results with the Moonbeam3 demonstrate its effectiveness to significantly reduce aerobic colony counts on surfaces, and provide significant log reductions in spores.
MoonBeam3 is built and tested for HAI reduction; third-party antimicrobial effectiveness tested on a broad range of pathogens…
UVC Energy Works Powerfully in Disinfection
Ultraviolet energy has a unique characteristic affect on cells. When properly applied, UVC causes cells to become incapable of reproduction, preventing infection by the organism. UVC energy is an electromagnetic wave that penetrates deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) or ribonucleic acid (RNA) of microorganisms. When microbes are irradiated with the appropriate dosage of UVC, affected cells are considered “dead” because they cannot replicate.
UVC is not a new disinfection technology, but it is only within the last six or seven years that it has begun to gain a foothold in medical disinfection applications. Used in air and water treatment since the early 1900’s, today’s increased power and compact form factor of UVC lamps, combined with sophisticated electronic controls, now makes their use in the medical arena a valid application.
Proper design and use of UVC systems is critically important to generate the desired results. Click here to go to the parameters that matter most in the UVC systems world. Ultraviolet energy is an excellent disinfection tool, but UVC augments manual cleaning to create another layer of protection for what manual cleaning missed. Statistics and studies present a grim picture of the efficacy of manual cleaning, and not due to staff inattention. Ultraviolet sources, properly designed, offer a broad disinfection zone and allow for improper setup and use to minimally affect the outcome.
UVC systems are excellent additions to a robust cleaning regimen and are currently in use facility-wide for terminal cleaning and daily cleaning of patient rooms, operating/emergency rooms, bathrooms, oncology, and intensive care units. Unlike most older technology “tower systems”, MoonBeam3 is low cost and fast cycling. Its seamless portability easily enables use on every clean to standardize the disinfection process.
MoonBeam3 provides the opportunity to use UVC on EVERY CLEAN. Robust disinfection can be achieved in as little as 90 seconds on equipment such as stretchers and WOWs. Simple operation and portability enables staff to use MoonBeam3 on routine bathroom cleans, delivering powerful, targeted UV-C germicidal light to provide fast, on-demand broad area disinfection effective against a broad spectrum of dangerous pathogens, and is applicable anywhere COVID-19 is suspect or confirmed.
Both laboratory and in-room target area testing results with the Moonbeam3 demonstrate its effectiveness to significantly reduce aerobic colony counts on surfaces, and provide significant log reductions in even the more challenging pathogenic spores, like C.diff.
