How to use a UV Steriliser Cabinet
Many hospitals and other healthcare establishments consider using UV technology to increase disinfection rates, but how exactly do you use a UV Steriliser Cabinet.
At Finsen Technologies, we are a global leader in producing products for healthcare settings that use UV light technology to cut healthcare acquired infections by up to 37% - key to this being the Nanoclave Cabinet.
We are perfectly placed to look at how these cabinets are used, how easy are they to operate?
The truth is, they are as easy to use as a dishwasher, if not easier. They are also far quicker.
With the Nanoclave Cabinet, our UV sterilisation unit, you would simply do the following.
How to operate our UV Steriliser Cabinet
- Place the objects inside the cabinet
- Run the automated cleaning cycle - this a 30-second dose of powerful UV light
- Remove the object(s), rotate and place back inside the cabinet
- Run a second 30-second disinfection programme, this ensuring full coverage
- Remove the item(s) - they are now disinfected
- Pathogens have been effectively killed - these including MRSA, C.difficile, VRE, A.baumannii, K.pneumoniae and many more
Using this technology helps to tackle the blight of HAIs in healthcare settings. In the UK alone, HAIs are estimated to cost the NHS £1 billion a year and account for some 30,000 lives.
While improved hygiene through hand sanitisation and other methods has had some impact, there are now accepted to be only marginal gains to be made through these small steps.
Utilising UVC technology to disinfect rooms and equipment can lead to drastic cuts in pathogens, HAIs and with it preventable deaths.
Operating the Nanoclave Cabinet could not be easier, it also has a range of other benefits.
Benefits of Finsen Technologies’ UV steriliser Cabinet:
- Fast cycle - disinfection achieved via two 30-second cleaning cycles
- The Naonclave is a portable unit, take it to where there is equipment to be cleaned, rather than having to take everything to it
- The Sterilising cabinet uses UV technology with no chemicals, gases or water and no heat generated. It is therefore perfect for sensitive and electronic equipment - items that could not be disinfected in other way
- The cleaning cycle is endlessly repeatable
- This is a green option, with no harmful chemicals or residues and no disposable wipes
- Nanoclave is cost effective, the initial cost of outlay offset against ongoing major savings
- Safety, UV light technology can be used to disinfect sensitive and electronic equipment
About our Cabinet
The Nanoclave Cabinet offers full traceability for each decontamination cycle, data can be printed out as a hard copy and also saved to an SD card or network connected device - for administrators this means there is a full paper trail to refer back to.
Our technology has been tested by independent academic institutions and accredited by the British Standards Institution (BSI) as a class IIA CE certified medical device.
Our sterilising cabinets can decontaminate virtually all non-invasive equipment, this including:
