Coming up next… a unique Germ-Zapping Robot is starring in some of our favorite medical TV shows – Chicago Med and Grey’s Anatomy.
As movie and television sets returned to production this fall, they incorporated many new best practices to ensure the safety of their actors and employees and to tell the story of the pandemic. As writers for medical TV shows researched what hospitals are doing to battle the virus that causes COVID-19, one name kept being repeated: Xenex. As a result, two of the world’s most popular medical TV shows chose Xenex LightStrike UV disinfection robots for an important role.
No, it’s not special effects – it’s the real deal. LightStrike’s cutting-edge use of Pulsed Xenon UV light allows real-life hospitals to quickly and effectively disinfect ORs, patient rooms and other high-touch areas just as easily as you saw them disinfecting rooms at Grey Sloan Memorial and Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. The robot’s cycle times are 5 minutes or less – and proven in peer-reviewed studies to deactivate SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), MRSA, C. diff, VRE and other pathogens.
LightStrike robots utilize xenon lamps to create intense bursts of UV light that covers the entire germicidal spectrum for fast and effective disinfection. Whether you are an actor, in a prop department, or part of the IP or EVS team in a real hospital – LightStrike integrates easily into your existing cleaning process, providing enhanced disinfection.
