UVDI Announces UV-C Device Presentations at the 16th World Congress on Public Health 2020
Ultraviolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI), a global leader in UV-C surface disinfecting and indoor air quality products, today announced its first Italian hospital studies demonstrating the advanced effectiveness of the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer will be presented at the 16th World Congress on Public Health 2020, taking place October 12 – 16, 2020. The novel research, conducted by Dr. Gabriele Messina, Associate Professor of Public Health, University of Siena, at the Rugani Hospital Monteriggioni in Siena, demonstrates the UVDI-360’s ability to inactivate pathogens in the hospital environment as part of varied cleaning protocols, in multiple high-risk locations and at different disinfecting cycle times.

Presentations from Dr. Messina and his Team at the University of Siena include:
(1) one poster sharing preliminary data of a cross-sectional study measuring overall pathogen reduction on high-touch surfaces in hospital rooms pre-and-post use of the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer as a supplement to terminal cleaning. Preliminary findings conclude 83% of sites sampled had 0 CFU following the use of the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer.
(2) a second poster sharing preliminary data of a cross-sectional study demonstrating overall pathogen reduction in operating rooms in six minutes with the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer used in multiple protocols: with no manual cleaning, manual cleaning in-between operating room use and as a supplement to manual terminal cleaning.
(3) an oral presentation sharing research demonstrating 3-and-4-log reductions of Candida auris at 2.44 meters using the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer.
(4) a third poster illustrating a simulation model of microbe distribution on surfaces to inform future UV-C testing.
