UVC robots are among the most effective tools for reducing bioburden, viruses, bacteria and other types of organic microorganisms in medical settings, given how they can destroy 99.99% and greater of harmful bacteria.

Here’s a closer look at how the UVC Robot works and how it is essential for increased efficacy and reduction in bioburden.

What Does the UV Robot Do?

The UVC Robot from Varidyn is self-driving and uses integrated UV-C light technology to disinfect entire rooms. 

This UVC disinfection robot can disinfect an entire OR suite in under two hours and smaller rooms within 10 to 15 minutes, depending on their size. A healthcare or hospital worker can order the UVC Robot into the room and start the disinfection by using the tablet. Then, the UVC Robot disinfects the room by moving between set points. When finished, it sends a notification to the worker via the tablet, and the worker can send it to another room to disinfect or back to its docking station. 

How Does the UV Robot Reduce Bioburden?

The UV-C light technology emitted by the UVC Robot can effectively destroy bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other pathogens. It does this by breaking the pathogens’ DNA structure. 

How Does the UVC Robot Compare With Other Disinfecting Methods?

Studies show that the UVC Robot can reduce microorganisms in its environment by more than 99.99%. These devices are programmed to be highly efficient, which helps cut down on the number of errors made by humans that increase the risk for viruses and bacteria while they disinfect rooms.

The UVC Robot by Varidyn works quicker with greater efficacy than manual UV-C disinfection machines, which can take up to 20 hours or longer to disinfect large areas.

In addition to routine cleaning, the UV Robot is more effective at killing pathogens, may work more quickly, and offers a high ROI to doctors and healthcare systems that invest in these machines. It can save hospitals up to hundreds of thousands in manual labor costs.
