Integrating decontamination technology into healthcare buildings

The COVID-19 pandemic has reiterated the importance of robust cleaning processes, demonstrating that manual cleaning alone is not enough to combat healthcare acquired infections and reduce the risks of transmission within patient care facilities.

While manual cleaning continues to have a place for removal of visible dirt and stains, additional decontamination is required to remove the harmful microorganisms left behind that can’t be seen. 

The Ultra-V Connect, designed by Inivos, has been developed using ultraviolet light (UV-C) which reduces harmful pathogens, including the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen which causes the COVID-19 virus, by up to >log5. The technology provides pioneering in-built infection prevention and control that delivers validated processes, complete with robust reporting at the end of every cycle installing confidence and reassurance in staff and patients. It is designed to attach to ceilings, and its rapid-deployment, short cycle duration and enhanced safety measures make it ideal for use for spaces that need to be regularly decontaminated. 

Able to decontaminate a space in as little as twenty-five minutes, the Ultra-V Connect is ideal for small, frequently used rooms and spaces, such as outpatient clinics, isolation wards, dirty utility spaces and dental surgeries. Multiple units can be connected to a single controller to serve larger areas such as theatres and multi-bed wards. The Ultra-V Connect is fully calibrated to create self-disinfecting rooms, such as high traffic touch-points or specific patient equipment within the space it is fitted.
