We use Xenex – a revolutionary, chemical-free UV light system that is proven to eliminate potentially harmful bacteria and viruses. It’s one additional step we take to protect our patients.
The Xenex device produces germicidal ultraviolet (UV-C) light that will penetrate the cell walls of bacteria, bacterial spores and viruses. The energy is absorbed by the DNA and fuses the DNA (creating thymine dimers), rendering the organisms unable to reproduce. This ability of UV to disinfect has been well-established. Unlike mercury-based systems, the Xenex technology allows for disinfection cycles that are quick enough for routine use in a busy hospital setting.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS XENEX?
Xenex’s efficacy has been confirmed in over 2200 independent lab samples and several hospitals.
WHICH ORGANISMS DOES XENEX ELIMINATE?
Xenex deactivates bacteria, spores, viruses, fungi, and mycobacteria.
