Environmental effectiveness of pulsed-xenon light in the operating room

In past years, Xenex has conducted many trials, especially in ORs, for hospitals desiring to demonstrate for themselves how pulsed xenon can zap those germs in ORs! Each hospital also shared their data. Our team pooled and analyzed it. They

Effect of PX-UV room disinfection on microbial counts for MRSA and general contamination

VA researchers found that surface MRSA counts were reduced by 75 percent and aerobic bacteria colony counts were reduced by 84 percent in rooms disinfected with pulsed xenon UV devices. Manual disinfection reduced bacteria counts only by 25-30 percent. According to the
