RevDesinfectie Robots announces that it is the exclusive distributor of Xenex Disinfection Services’ Germ-Zapping Robots™ for room disinfection at hospitals and healthcare facilities in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg (Benelux). Healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) caused by superbugs such as C. diff, MRSA, MERS and CRE are a global problem and Xenex’s Full Spectrum™ pulsed xenon ultraviolet (UV) light robots are a proven and ultra-fast solution to destroy deadly microorganisms before they can harm patients and healthcare workers.
Xenex robots take room disinfection to the next level by pulsing xenon, an environmentally-friendly inert gas, to create full spectrum, high intensity UV light that quickly destroys infectious germs. Hospitals utilizing Xenex robots have published peer reviewed outcome studies showing a greater than 50 percent decrease in C.diff, MRSA and multidrug-resistant organism (MDRO) infection rates in highly regarded scientific journals that include the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC), Journal of Infection Prevention, Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology (ICHE) and BMC Infectious Diseases.
“Xenex germ-zapping robots have helped hospitals in the United States achieve significant infection rate reductions and we are honored to bring this proven technology to Benelux hospitals,” says spokesman Eric Hesp. “We strongly believe that the Xenex technology is a breakthrough in the field of environmental disinfection. With Xenex’s revolutionary pulsed xenon UV disinfection, hospitals can now effectively reduce healthcare associated infection rates by destroying pathogens in the environment before they can endanger patients. We chose Xenex because only Xenex does not utilize mercury bulbs and is proven and published in peer reviewed journals to work in the hospital environment and reduce the rates of patient infections.”
The Xenex robot is designed for speed, effectiveness and ease of use, which allows hospital cleaning staff to operate the robot without disrupting hospital operations. With a proven five-minute disinfection cycle for C.diff and less than 90 seconds for other pathogens, the robot can disinfect 30-62 hospital rooms per day (according to Xenex customers), including: patient rooms, operating rooms, equipment rooms, emergency rooms, intensive care units and public areas. Nearly 300 hospitals and healthcare facilities in the U.S. and Europe use Xenex robots.
Founded by three experienced businessmen who have been supplying high-tech medical equipment and information systems to healthcare facilities in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg for more than two decades, RevDesinfectie Robots is focused on supplying hospitals with the best disinfection system available to enhance patient and healthcare worker safety.
Xenex's patented Full Spectrum™ pulsed xenon UV room disinfection system is used for the advanced disinfection of healthcare facilities. Due to its speed and ease of use, the Xenex system has proven to integrate smoothly into hospital cleaning operations. Xenex’s mission is to save lives and reduce suffering by eliminating the deadly microorganisms that cause HAIs. The company is backed by investors that include Malin Corporation/BrandonPoint, Battery Ventures, Targeted Technology Fund II and RK Ventures.
