UVDIís Mobile Room Sanitizer Eradicates Microorganisms in Independent Laboratory Tests


A great deal of attention has been made recently to the dangers of harmful microbial organisms such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureas (MRSA), toxic mold and viruses like H1N1. Their presence in schools, hospitals, offices and even homes has been brought to light with major media reports and warnings from healthcare and government agencies.

UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI), a leading provider of advanced ultraviolet (UV) and molecular filtration products, recently challenged their popular Mobile Room Sanitizer with rigorous testing by ATS Labs, an independent antimicrobial testing services laboratory. The Mobile Room Sanitizer is a portable, ultraviolet technology product designed to eradicate bacteria, viruses and molds. It can easily move from location to location in hotels, schools, hospitals and anywhere else there are concerns about surface and air contamination by harmful pathogens. The units are capable of safely disinfecting a room using UV-C energy in as little as a few minutes. UVDIís Mobile Room Sanitizer is the only unit on the market that is certified by UL and CSA standards and FCC CFR47 Part18.

The ATS test protocol was specifically designed to determine effectiveness for surface disinfection at 8 and 17 foot distances in a controlled laboratory environment. Using Staphylococcus aureus as the test organism, the Mobile Room Sanitizer was proven to be successful at destroying 99.9% of the target organisms in 5 minutes at the 8 foot range and in as little as 10 minutes at the 17 foot range.

According to Dave Witham, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at UVDI, ďThe results were superb and exactly how we designed the units to operate. Further, UVDI uses a sophisticated, proprietary UV modeling system that can calculate UV dosage and predict disinfection rates for a variety of configurations and pathogens. These test results also validate the accuracy of our model.Ē Paul Cochrane, Public Relations Manager for UVDI stated that ďThese units have become very popular as the public becomes increasingly concerned about MRSA, the H1N1 virus and other microbial contaminants ranging from mold to food borne pathogens.Ē

UVDI is ISO 9001:2000 certified and has distributors for the Mobile Room Sanitizer across the country. To learn more about UVDI, or to locate a local distributor, please visit, email or call (877) 787-3882.
