NIH Introduces Lumalier’s UV Disinfection Robot at Clinical Center

NIHThe National Institutes of Health Clinical Center has deployed a Lumalier-manufactured UV disinfection robot that is designed to eliminate germs and pathogens inside the facility while adjusting its settings to room variables.

Lumalier’s 5-foot, 5-inch TRU-D SmartUVC device uses Sensor360 technology as it works to detect room variables like size, surface reflectivity and location of equipment, then emit UV-C light in calculated doses, Lumalier said Thursday .

The device is also equipped with a cloud-connected usage tracking program called iTRU-D, which is built to deliver usage reports to hospital staff.

TRU-D SmartUVC has been tested to eliminate pathogens such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, Lumalier said.

The NIH Clinical Center is a 240-bed facility that serves an estimated 6,000 inpatients and 105,000 outpatients a year and employs more than 2,000 healthcare professionals and researchers.
