August 12, 2020 – Surfacide (Waukesha, WI) was awarded a contract with Vizient Inc (Irving, TX) for Surfacide’s innovative multiple emitter UV-C solution, effective July 1, 2020.
The Surfacide system, which demonstrated efficacy against the MERS Coronavirus in data published from the University of Iowa, is being deployed in facilities across the country as organizations implement solutions in the battle against COVID-19.
While the implementation of Surfacide has been in response to the pandemic, many have noted this will be a long-term solution as the mindset around infection prevention has forever changed, the company says.
The Surfacide system provides an automated UV-C decontamination technology that significantly reduces bacteria, spores and viruses and is effective against a variety of advanced viral infectious diseases. Helios incorporates multiple automated UV-C emitters that work together to provide decontamination of the room in minutes to provide an extra layer of protection.
