The agreement, which was effective on July 1, 2015, allows MAGNET Group’s thousands of participating healthcare facilities to begin purchasing Spectra254’s UV-C light disinfection solutions.

Duke, vice president and chief operating officer for MAGNET Group. “Our customers include many different kinds of healthcare facilities with differing needs.
