STERIPRO - UVC Desinfection Technology

 
Expomédica was recently appointed as STERIPRO exclusive distributor for Portugal.

STERIPRO is a contactless equipment for disinfecting surfaces by ultraviolet light (UVC) and in few minutes (5 to 15), by the action of the UV-C rays at 254nm emitted by its multiple (24x) lamps, inactivates most bacteria and viruses on the surfaces.

Regardless of its proven validity in this acute phase of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid19), its continued use will always be very important for the reduction of the bacterial load existing in health units and the concomitant nosocomial infections and / or IACS. It has been proven to contribute to a reduction of at least 30% of hospital infections.
Being very easy to use, it can be quickly integrated into the daily clean and disinfection procedures of any Hospital. The STERIPRO equipment can be used to disinfect any room (OR, ICU, wards, offices, storage rooms, etc.), after its normal cleaning (for greater efficiency) and can be used continuously. The device itself calculates the time needed to disinfect the room (using the built-in radar it determines the size of the room and the time needed for its disinfection), which will normally take between 5 to 15 minutes (depending on size). During that time, no one can be in the room, but if someone inadvertently enters the system automatically stops (thanks to the built-in motion sensors). Once disinfection is finished in one room, it can be moved to another room and start disinfection in that one and so on. It can work 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.

STERIPRO is an equipment that is an “asset” for any institution, because of the huge financial and human savings.
