Tru-D SmartUVC to Exhibit UV Disinfection Robot at AORN Surgical Conference and Expo 2015


Tru-D SmartUVC will exhibit the cutting-edge UV disinfection robot at the Association for Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) Surgical Conference and Expo 2015 in Denver March 7-11. 

Tru-D SmartUVC's UV light disinfection technology eliminates detrimental pathogens, which has made it an important asset to facilities elevating their prevention protocols throughout the healthcare industry. Recently, Tru-D's groundbreaking technology has been used in global health scares involving dangerous bacteria, such Ebola and enterovirus, and in hospitals to protect doctors, nurses and especially patients from harmful hospital-acquired infections that can cause death, readmission and unreimbursed high costs. 

Tru-D brings convenience and security to infection prevention efforts by providing hospitals with an automated device that eliminates infectious cells from a single, central location in the room. With its patented Sensor360 technology, the device calculates the amount of time required to successfully disinfect an entire room, a characteristic not found in any other UV disinfection technology on the market. Tru-D is currently being deployed by healthcare leaders around the world to eliminate dangerous pathogens such as Ebola, MERS, influenza, norovirus, Clostridium difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), in multiple facets of the healthcare industry.

"Tru-D continually expands into new markets and hospitals every day," says Chuck Dunn, president and chief executive officer of Tru-D SmartUVC LLC. "The growing use of our device in epidemiologically correct third party clinical research trials and in hospitals around the world allows us to confidently say that Tru-D is not only effective, but it's the best of its kind, using advanced technology to survey a room and calculate what is necessary to eliminate harmful germs and pathogens from all surfaces in the room. Being at the forefront of this technology drives us to remain the best in the industry."

Tru-D SmartUVC is the device of choice for nearly all existing independent research on UV disinfection technology, including a $2 million infection reduction study funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Epicenter Program at Duke University and the University of North Carolina. Hundreds of Tru-Ds have been deployed to disinfect hospitals across the U.S. and internationally, including the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland; the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston, South Carolina; and Houston Methodist in Houston, Texas.
