UVC Disinfection: Proven by Science


The BETR-D Study: The first and only randomized clinical trial on UVC Disinfection

Since its inception in 2007, UVC disinfection has been proven by multiple studies to be an effective means of enhanced terminal room disinfection to help stop the spread of HAIs such as C. diff, MRSA, VRE, Ebola and many more. This paper outlines the first and only randomized clinical trial on UVC disinfection, the Benefits of Enhanced Terminal Room-Disinfection (BETR-D) study, its results as well as subsequent studies that have resulted from the BETR-D study.

This Whitepaper, sponsored by Tru-D, will discuss:

  • How UVC works

  • Why every surface matters

  • History of the BETR-D study

  • The Future of UVC disinfection
