AUBURN HILLS, Mich., May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Infection Prevention Technologies has been announced as a winner of the noted DiSciTech Award from Corp! Magazine in the science category.
Infection Prevention Technologies designs and markets a product family of the most powerful ultraviolet light disinfection robots in the world. IPT's germ-killing UV robots, marketed under the NextGen UV™ brand name, use the time-tested technology of UV light disinfection to thoroughly sanitize areas where hidden colonies of harmful microorganisms reside, and by doing so, reduce the incidence of dangerous healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
"We're gratified that Corp! Magazine has recognized the advanced technology in our NextGen UV disinfection robots," said Tom Kenny, the CEO of Infection Prevention Technologies. "Our family of UV disinfection robots are clinically tested and proven for dramatically lowering HAIs, which significantly reduces costs for healthcare systems and improves patient outcomes."
IPT's three NextGen UV™ germicidal robots - IRiS™ 3200, IRiS 2280 Syndicate, and IRiS 1140 Max, are deployed for disinfecting rooms in acute care hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, long-term care facilities and other healthcare settings where unsafe microbes such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi may reside. Other environments that benefit from the germ-killing energy of UV light disinfection systems include nursing homes, schools, day care centers, gyms, spas and correctional facilities.
Kenny continued, "Because our objective is to maximize the value to the customer, IPT has a strong focus on product engineering. As a result, we offer UV light disinfection systems that generate very high levels of UV-C with features like single placement, whole-room treatments and scientifically calculated applications of UV-C dosages that assure high pathogen kill rates."
IPT's intelligent robots incorporate patent-pending SmartDosage UV™ technology that automatically calibrates disinfection regimens so a complete dose of germicidal UV is thoroughly applied to the entire treatment environment.
"There is a qualitative difference in offerings from vendors of UV devices in the type and amount of ultraviolet energy that is created," said Chris Batts, IPT's Director of Marketing. "The NextGen UV disinfection robots create extensive amounts of germicidal UV-C energy that is unequaled in the market. That corresponds to very fast and remarkably effective disinfection treatments. For hospitals, ultimately that means a quick payback and high ROI. For patients and their families, it can mean a profound and positive difference in the outcome of their hospital experience."
