PURO Unveils First-of-its-Kind Disinfection Control System at Major Children’s Hospital

DENVER, April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PURO® UV Disinfection Lighting announced today the successful installation of its latest disinfection solution, PURONet UV Disinfection Control System at Children’s Mercy Kansas City. As the first control system of its kind, PURONet seamlessly controls disinfection units within a room to quickly and continuously disinfect air of pathogens up to 99.9% – including MRSA and today’s SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.

“Our team researched extensively to discover and determine the best infection control solutions for our operating rooms, and PURO offered the most thorough and complete solution for installation, utilization, and effectiveness,” said Adam Zorn, Director of Engineering at Children’s Mercy Kansas City. “With the introduction of PURONet, the products are now also the most safe and intuitive application for our facilities, environmental services, and operating room front-line staff.”

PURONet offers a user-friendly disinfection program complete with full-spectrum Helo UV disinfection units, powered by Violet Defense® technology, motion sensors and a touch screen control system. The control center provides powerful disinfection without the added cost of full time employees or expensive maintenance associated with portable UV machines.

“PURONet’s UV disinfection technology provides an added layer of safety and security for patients and healthcare providers,” said Brian Stern, CEO of PURO Lighting. “While other PURO fixtures have been successfully installed in hospitals and surgery centers across the country, we are proud to work with Children’s Mercy Kansas City on the first installation of our PURONet control system and ultimately revolutionize the way hospitals disinfect their operating rooms.”

Last month, PURO launched PUROHealth, a product line specifically tailored to healthcare facilities. PUROHealth offers a wide variety of UV technologies for both continuous air disinfection for occupied spaces, and air and surface disinfection for unoccupied spaces. The new healthcare division brings customized and proven UV disinfection solutions to operating rooms, hospitals, clinics, medical offices, urgent care, and long-term care facilities.  

PURO also recently partnered with Siemens Healthineers and other major healthcare systems to bring the power of UV disinfection to more areas of the healthcare industry.

PURO Launches New Product That Defines the Future of UV Disinfection Lighting

PURO Protect 222 uses Far UV-C 222 technology to offer a safe and continual air and surface disinfection solution for occupied spaces.

DENVER, June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today at the APIC 2022 Annual Conference, PURO® UV Disinfection Lighting announces its latest product line that pushes the limits of UV technology, making it safe and easy to disinfect in high traffic areas.

PURO Protect 222 utilizes patented, filtered 222 nanometer Far UV-C light technology to safely and continuously disinfect high traffic and high touch areas in occupied spaces. Designed for autonomous, continual disinfection of both air and surfaces, PURO Protect 222 products have been proven to inactivate harmful viruses and bacteria, including today’s SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.

“We’re excited to announce PURO Protect as one of the only Far UV-C products to be independently tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories. This is great news for schools and universities, hospitals and senior living facilities,” said Brian Stern, CEO of PURO Lighting. “Because it can be used safely throughout the day, our Protect 222 products represent the true future of UV disinfection. Surface or pendant mounted from above, it works to keep people safe from spreading infections and most importantly, offers real peace of mind that the space they’re in is protected.”

There are two PURO Protect 222 products available; a single Far UV emitter, ceiling-mounted device offering continual air and surface disinfection in occupied spaces and Protect 222 High Bay with two Far UV light emitters for use in industrial and commercial spaces. Both products are ideal for high traffic areas in healthcare, such as bathrooms, sterile processing, emergency departments, intensive care units, nurse’s stations, urgent care centers, patient exam rooms, waiting rooms and more.

Powered by patented CARE222® filtered Far UV-C technology from Ushio and patent pending dosage controllers and other technology from Acuity Brands Lighting, PURO Protect 222 utilizes a short pass filter to remove UV wavelengths that can penetrate the living tissue in skin or beyond the tear layer of the eyes to create a safe, narrow band of 222 UV light emission. In fact, PURO Protect 222 is one of only a few Far UV products to be UL certified to meet US standards for germicidal equipment for use in occupied space and classified in photobiological risk group Exempt as defined in IEC/TR 62471-2, when correctly commissioned and properly installed.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to take advantage of the technology developed by Ushio and Acuity Brands Lighting for PURO’s new product line. Now we can offer the next generation of autonomous, sustainable and chemical-free UV solutions for disinfecting occupied spaces,” said Jim Colantoni, Chief Revenue Officer. “Plus, Protect 222 is practically maintenance free, with an industry-leading warranty of 2 years and an expected system lifetime of 5 years.”

Columbia University and other research institutions have proven Far UV-C technology safe for use in occupied spaces and effective against a wide range of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens. Continual operation of Protect 222 in accordance with written instructions meets the 2021 exposure guidelines for occupied space established by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH®) as adopted by the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC).
