Cary, NC, January 13, 2019 – Lumagenics announced today their participation and attendance in the upcoming Ultraviolet Disinfection Technologies & Healthcare Associated Infections Workshop: Defining Standards and Metrology Needs. The event will be held January 14-15, 2020 in Gaithersburg, MD and will provide the community with an opportunity to learn about the current science of HAI prevention with UVC and to discuss standards needs in both physical and biological performance areas for UVC disinfection devices.
The meeting will be focused on examining measurement, standards, technology and data research needs to promote innovation in the effective use and implementation of ultraviolet-C (UVC) technology in healthcare settings for the reduction and prevention of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Input from the event will be used by the community for the development of proposed performance standards for UVC disinfection devices.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has engaged with the International Ultra Violet Association (IUVA) to explore ways to address these challenges and help advance measures of device disinfection efficacy, reliability, and operation.
Company CEO, C.G. Gillooly will speak at the events roundtable talk: Different Approaches, Common Goals to Combat HAIs. The roundtable will bring together manufacturers of UV disinfection devices from the across the marketplace to discuss their scientific, engineering, clinical, and business approaches to achieve disinfection in the healthcare environment.
