Diversey rolls out mobile device disinfection solution for healthcare and other facilities

Published: 7-Jun-2017

Sealed Air’s Diversey Care division has introduced the SKY 7Xi, a mobile device disinfection solution for healthcare environments

In one minute or less, SKY safely disinfects tablets and smartphones with high-intensity ultraviolet (UV) light that penetrates the cells of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and spores.

“Phones and tablets, which are being used with increased frequency within healthcare facilities, are extremely high-touch surfaces and potential sources of healthcare associated infections,” said Carolyn Cooke, Vice President Healthcare North America, Diversey Care.

“SKY is portable and easy to use, enabling fast and effective disinfection of facility-owned, healthcare worker and visitor devices and allowing organisations to create safer and more satisfying environments of care.”

The SKY7Xi disinfects devices with targeted UVC light rather than fumes or chemicals, making it a safe and effective method for reducing handheld device pathogen transmission. It achieves up to a 5-log reduction in harmful pathogens including MRSA, VRE, MDR-Gram negative, Norovirus and C. diff spores.

With desktop, wall mount and mobile cart options, SKY can be placed in multiple locations. The design provides 360-degree coverage and can accommodate devices up to 1 inch thick by 8 inches wide and 12 inches long.

Sealed Air has approximately 23,000 employees who serve customers in 171 countries.
