March 16, 2023 – Tru-D® SmartUVC, a PDI Healthcare environment of care solution, has launched the next generation of intelligent UVC disinfection products—its most advanced innovation in fifteen years. A pioneer in the UVC disinfection industry, the Tru-D technology was introduced to the health care industry in 2007 and continues to be a leader in the space. Utilization of UVC disinfection systems grew exponentially during the Covid-19 pandemic and continues to be standard practice in healthcare.
While customers implemented a successful UVC cleaning and disinfection program with the Tru-D Classic device, it was important for this next generation portfolio of products to address health care facilities’ needs for shorter cycle times that do not impact efficacy as well as the ability to implement UVC disinfection in smaller spaces such as bathrooms, physician/ER exam rooms and ambulance modules.
The Tru-D iQ system of connected products adapts to the needs of a wide range of room sizes to administer a precise dose of UVC. Using Sensor360® technology, Tru-D products provide trusted disinfection of hard, nonporous surfaces with remarkable speed and proven efficacy. The Tru-D family of products is the only “smart” UVC disinfection system with Sensor360® technology that measures the reflected UVC energy that bounces back to the robot, allowing the Tru-D devices to provide a precise, required dose of UVC needed for thorough room disinfection.
The iQ system has three components—Tru-D iQ Tower, Tru-D iQ Scout and Tru-D iQ Controller—that together make for one of the most intelligent systems available and provide a triple threat against unwanted microorganisms including Clostridiodes difficile (C. diff), SARS-CoV-2, influenza A (H1N1), Staphylococcus aureus and Candida auris.
- Tower: Tower is the most powerful and intelligent device of the iQ system. It can be used by itself or together with its smaller counterpart, Scout.
- Scout: Scout is a compact, maneuverable component of the iQ system that provides effective UVC disinfection. It can be used in conjunction with Tower or by itself for small spaces, such as bathrooms.
- Controller: The Controller is the mobile command center for all iQ disinfection devices and connects to the Tru-D SmartHUB, an all-inclusive, web-based application that provides authorized users with the data, tools and resources needed to ensure each facility gets the most out of its enhanced disinfection program with the use of the Tru-D system.
