The Next Generation UV-C Disinfection*

Surfacide provides an evidence-based, automated UV-C system that data indicate is effective against multi-drug resistant organisms including C.diff, MRSA, VRE, CRE and Acinetobacter. Our approach is different. The Surfacide system utilizes multiple emitters to provide UV-C energy to more exposed areas with more power and efficacy as compared to single emitter systems.

Real Problems are Shadows, Distance & Time/LaboUr

Overcoming Shadows

With 3 emitters, the Surfacide system is able to cover more surface area than single emitters during a single cycle. It’s better protection for your patients that can only be achieved with a triple-emitter system. Single emitter systems, (including pulsed xenon gas systems) simply cannot reach all high touch surfaces in a single disinfection cycle. Relying upon reflected energy to measure, analyze, and determine the proper dose of UV energy is flawed. With Surfacide’s three emitters operating during the same disinfection cycle, more surfaces are exposed, leaving behind a safer environment.

Distance Matters

As the distance to a surface increases, less energy is delivered to that surface. Surfacide’s three emitters are closer to more surfaces than all other UV systems, addressing more areas for further protection. Because three times the coverage is better than one.

Less Time, Less Labour

Single emitter systems must be re-positioned throughout the room up to FIVE times, resulting in a 51-146.3* minute cycle. Surfacide does not require any additional re-positioning after room set up, allowing EVS to be productive elsewhere in the hospital. One Cycle + efficient delivery of energy results in more thorough disinfection and faster room turn-around. Set it and go.

Validation

With our Laser Mapping feature, Surfacide systems are smart and able to identify exposed surfaces, providing confidence that disinfecting energy has been delivered efficiently and effectively.

Cost Advantages

Surfacide provides the greatest value in HAI reduction. Our system includes 3 emitters at a similar price point of most single emitter systems. For added flexibility, emitters can be decoupled and utilized individually for small spaces such as bathrooms, which has been shown to improve HCAHPS.

Safe & Reliable

Surfacide has the ability to detect anyone entering the room and shuts off the three emitters instantly, ensuring patient, visitor and employee safety. Our three emitter system has been internationally certified, credentialed and registered with local regulatory bodies.

Value Added Features

Safe & Reliable

With the scrub feature, our laser alignment and parabolic concentrator enables Surfacide to do what no other UV system can. The proprietary function allows UV-C energy to be directed into a user defined area. Targeted areas may include multi-bedded bays, portable workstations, surgical tables, etc.

Technology

Our emitters are connected to the tablet via wireless interconnection and our tablet is connected to the web portal for report viewing via Wifi.

Surfacide Data

Surfacide Data Explained

Less Time, Less Labour

Three Emitters + One Cycle = More Coverage, Less Time and Better Efficacy

Single emiiter systems must be repositioned throughout the in room up FIVE times, resulting in a 51-146.3* minute cycle. Data shows Surfacide completes one cycle in less than 20 minutes.

Surfacide C.diff Infection Prevention

Surfacide is honored to be a part of the CDIFFerently infection prevention bundle St. Luke’s Campus of Mohawk Valley Health System

Surfacide Data on Candida Auris

Surfacide is proud to be a key part of the bundled enhanced terminal HAI reduction at Mount Sinai and others in the battle against Candida Auris.

Surfacide Data provides Successful Environment Disinfection

Surfacide Data on UV-C Light as an Adjunct to Infection Control in a Pediatric Burn Hospital – Julie Weitz, BSN RN et al., Shriners Hospitals for Children Cincinnati

Determined that the use of Surfacide as an additional tool in the reduction of HAIs in patient room areas was a “effective and integral component in the reduction of bacterial pathogens not eradicated by the cleaning process alone.”

Surfacide Data continued Success with UV-C Light Disinfection – Making the Case for Reducing HAIs, Susan Hanrahan MC, CIC, CRCST, Infection Prevention Manager JSUMC; Chad Haraschak BS, Environmental Services, Crothall Healthcare

This study demonstrated that persistent use of the Surfacide system in two ICU areas resulted in a quantifiable reduction in CLABSI rates and a statistically significant reduction in CAUTI rates. Ultimately, the 15-month study documented a 53% decrease in CAUTI rates along with several months with zero infections and improved patient outcomes.

Impact of Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection System Coupled with Evidence Based Interventions on the Incidence of Hospital Onset Clostridium Difficile by Dr. Heather Bernard from Faxton St Luke’s

The implementation of Surfacide at Faxton St. Luke’s resulted in a 41% reduction in their hospital acquired C. diff rates in a single year of use. The introduction of Surfacide was following the introduction of a comprehensive C. diff intervention bundle with limited effect on overall hospital onset C. diff rates.
