This Robot Can Sanitize An Entire Hospital Room In 10 Minutes
One place that offers each and every variety of pathogens is the hospital. You visit hospital for a cure but deadly pathogens and drug resistant organisms are already waiting to attack you right away. The Xenex Germ-Zapping Robot™ protects the patients while destroying bugs in hospitals and medical centers with bursts of ultraviolet (UV) light.
The director of Infection Prevention at Saint Peter’s University Hospital, Amy R. Gram, says,
Ultraviolet technology has been widely used for antimicrobial purposes. However, the Xenex robot is easier and safer method that uses pulsed Xenon; a very high-intensity UV light. The light emitted by the robot penetrates the microorganism cell walls, whether it is bacteria, viruses, mold, fungus, or spores. This fuses the DNA of the targeted organisms and stops them from being reproduced or mutated, while killing them once and for all.
Although most hospitals follow proper practices to keep the place as germ-free as possible, the detailed cleaning is still a very extensive task that requires long hours. The Xenex Robot handles the entire problem efficiently while taking no longer than 10 minutes to zap all the pathogens. First, the room is cleaned, and then the areas with highest traffic and risk are targeted after a little preparation
