Why Xenex

Microbial Reduction Powered by Evidence-Based Science

Liquid chemical cleaning alone is not sufficient. In fact, research has shown that 48% of hospital room surfaces are not properly disinfected during the liquid chemical cleaning process1 – increasing the risk of pathogen transmission from surfaces to staff and patients.

Our results-driven best practices and LightStrike+ technology are a validated means to significantly reduce the number of pathogens that survive liquid chemical cleaning.

The Xenon Difference

LightStrike+ uses a patented Pulsed Xenon UV light system that produces broad spectrum (240-315nm) germicidal UV, deactivating pathogens at wavelengths where they are most susceptible.

Unlike single spectrum mercury UV lamps, pulsed UV is proven to not harm surfaces the way narrow spectrum mercury UV bulbs do2.
