Report Summary

Pulsed xenon technology has been shown to work in a lab setting, but it is also supplementing manual cleaning and making a difference in the healthcare environment. This report summarizes recent studies that have examined pulsed xenon technology.

Editor's Take

At the core of pulsed xenon technology are high-intensity ultraviolet light produced by xenon flash lamps across the entire disinfecting spectrum known as UV-C. This UV-C energy passes through the cell walls of bacteria, viruses and bacterial spores. The DNA, RNA and proteins inside the microorganism absorb this intense UV-C energy, thus destroying pathogens on a submicroscopic DNA level.

Takeaways for Your Business

  • Discover the four mechanisms of destruction by pulsed xenon technology
  • Review outcome and environmental studies relating to the effectiveness of this UV technology
  • Learn how hospitals are using pulsed xenon technology against a range of pathogenic organisms
