Spectra254, a developer of high-power, easy-to-use, affordable UVC light decontamination systems, will exhibit its flagship product line at the 24th Annual Florida International Medical Exposition (FIME) in Miami, August 6-8, 2014 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Spectra254, which enters the industry with years of research and development in the light technology market, will showcase the Spectra254 product line of portable ultraviolet light-generating systems, ideal for use in hospitals, health clinics, food-preparation areas and other settings where contamination is of critical concern. FIME is expected to be attended by more than 50,000 medical distributors, facility managers, doctors, manufacturers, suppliers, and purchasing agents. FIME is one of the top-rated expositions of its kind, named a top five medical trade show by the Healthcare Convention and Exhibitors Association.
Spectra254 will display two of its products at FIME 2014, the Spectra 1000, the Spectra 500. Spectra254 is exhibiting in Booth 261 at FIME 2014. This is the third major tradeshow for Spectra254 since the company’s launch in May 2014, an indication of its commitment to serving multiple markets. In June, the company exhibited at the 41st Annual Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Conference in Anaheim, Calif., and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) 65th Clinical Symposia & AT Expo in Indianapolis.
“At Spectra254, our focus is on developing UVC light technology solutions that address the very real need to fight surface pathogens in the many and varied environments, including in the healthcare market, in which they are found,” says Sanford Green, president of Spectra254. “The solutions we are offering can easily decontaminate a patient room or locker room in 15 minutes.”
The Spectra 1000 features eight high-intensity, custom-made lamps that broadcast a high output of UVC light to virtually every surface in the area being treated to kill pathogens such as C. difficile, MRSA, HIV, norovirus and salmonella. When coupled with the Spectra254 Touch Pad Interface, users can collect and easily export data on the use of the Spectra 1000, including date and start time of the system, cycle time and status to create a comprehensive log for management.
Spectra254 manufactures mobile systems that can decontaminate a space within 5 to 15 minutes, and provides a “green” supplement to the typical use of harsh chemicals.
In independent analysis performed for Spectra254 by EMSL Analytical Inc., scientific testing showed the UVC light from the Spectra 1100 was highly effective (greater than 99.9 percent) at killing MRSA and C. difficile on solid surfaces and inhibiting the growth over a range of exposure times and distances. The Spectra 1100 will be launched later this year and will feature new capabilities, including the Touch Pad Interface data-tracking feature.
The company’s systems are manufactured and assembled in a U.S.-based ISO 9000 facility that meets or exceeds the quality assurance standards outlined by International Organization of Standards.
