Ultra-V™ was used to assess the efficacy of UV-C decontamination on surfaces both directly and indirectly exposed to UV-C.
Manual cleaning was performed on chosen surfaces followed by sample collection and decontamination using UV-C
After UV-C decontamination the number of total viability counts was reduced by 97% from levels after initial manual cleaning
HPD, after deep cleaning with a detergent/chlorine agent, was highly effective for removing C. diff contamination.
Ultra-V™ was chosen to decontaminate the environment during a construction project within the Walsall Healthcare hospital.
Manual cleaning was performed and samples collected to measure total viability count (TVC). Afterwards, Ultra-V™ decontamination was carried out and new samples were taken.
A strong presence of TVC was still found after manual cleaning, whilst after Ultra-V™ decontamination the levels of TVC were 98% lower.
Multiresistant organisms (MRO) at were on the increase. An action plan was formed using improved manual cleaning and Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour.
Sutherland Hospital ICU improved PPE requirements and implemented Deprox™ into their decontamination programme.
After using Deprox™, the ICU experienced significantly lower MRO cases and reduced the occupied-bed number by over 90%.
A study to determine the efficacy of using hydrogen peroxide vapour for decontamination of hospital side rooms.
Large environmental sampling for C.difficile was performed before deep cleaning with chlorine agents and again after Deprox™ HPV.
Deprox™ cleaning reduced contamination levels by 95% from the levels observed after deep cleaning.
