Do shading or shadows in the room impact XENEX efficacy?

Third-party studies have shown that, “… pathogen concentration, organic load, and shading from the direct field of radiation did not” reduce XENEX’s efficacy (Donskey, 2015). However, we recommend running the Robot in multiple positions in a room to maximize the number of surfaces that are directly exposed to Full Spectrum UV-C and to minimize dependence on surface reflectivity that varies from room to room and surface to surface. Historical UV-C technologies that were used in only one position in the room have not achieved the multiple C.diff and MRSA rate reductions that hospitals using XENEX have reported in peer-reviewed journals.
