MoonBeam™3 from Sealed Air’s Diversey Care division, is a disinfection system that uses ultraviolet (UV) technology to kill pathogens on high-touch surfaces in patient rooms, operating rooms, and bathrooms. Designed for use in conjunction with regular cleaning and disinfection, the portable solution uses three individually adjustable arms to sanitize patient care equipment, fixtures, bed rails, workstations, monitors, and more.
“Traditional UV disinfection towers are designed to disinfect vertically, meaning they can miss important surfaces in the horizontal direction,” said Carolyn Cooke, Vice President Healthcare North America, Diversey Care. “With adjustable coverage, MoonBeam3 provides a targeted approach that will allow our healthcare customers to take cleaning and disinfection to the next level and improve patient outcomes. Plus, it’s significantly more affordable than other technologies available in the market.”
With cycle times as low as 90 seconds, MoonBeam3’s arms each generate a broad umbrella (7′ x 11′ area) of intense, 254-nanometer wavelength, UVC light to quickly penetrate pathogen cells (no ozone generation). The disinfection system has been clinically tested to achieve 3 log to 5 log reductions in harmful pathogens such as MRSA, VRE, MDR Gram negative bacteria, and norovirus in as little as three minutes and C. diff spores in as little as 10 minutes.
Delivering chemical-free, fume-free pathogen elimination, MoonBeam3 incorporates a physical accelerometer and infrared motion sensing in the room. The bright yellow cover acts as a safety cone to alert staff and visitors that the device is in use. It also functions as a remote control that starts the device from outside of the room and automatically stops the cycle if entry or motion is detected.
MoonBeam3 is portable and weighs 39 pounds, enabling environmental services professionals to disinfect tight spaces. The base unit has smooth rolling casters with a locking feature that allows easy movement and positioning anywhere. Three individually-adjustable, articulating arms can be positioned at almost any angle to target the UVC light, enabling improved UVC dosing with reduced energy.
