PURO Lighting Announces Agreement with Siemens Healthineers
DENVER, Dec. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ —PURO UV Disinfection Lighting announces today a new agreement with industry-leading Siemens Healthineers, a global provider of healthcare solutions and services. The goal is to bring the power of UV-C disinfection to more areas of the health care industry, from ORs and ERs to exam rooms, waiting rooms and more. UV light disinfection is one of the only technologies currently recommended by both ASHRAE and the CDC to disinfect spaces. PURO Air products quickly and continuously disinfect air of pathogens up to 99.9% including today’s SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Most recently, PURO Air’s Aurora Air Fan unit has been independently tested and was shown effective in reducing aerosolized viral concentrations of SARS-CoV-2 by up to 99.976% in a single pass.
Brian Stern, CEO of PURO Lighting says, “This is really about the relationship between two companies that have a shared, vested interest in the safety of all during this time of increasing COVID-19 infections. We’ve partnered with Siemens Healthineers to offer the health care industry, hospitals, staff, doctors and patients real solutions to curtail the spread of this and many other infectious diseases.”
“The persistence of COVID-19 and the recent variant surge make it clear that keeping patients and front-line staff safe from germs, viruses and bacteria is more than a safety mandate – it can be a lifeline to keeping your business viable,” said Adam Schraegle, Senior Manager of OEM Solutions at Siemens Healthineers North America. “Our agreement with PURO comes at a critical time for our customers, when so many of them are exhausting their resources to keep patients and staff safe. This alliance is a breath of fresh air in healthcare disinfection, and it couldn’t come at a better time.”
Earlier this year, PURO Lighting expanded into continuous air disinfection using proven UV light technology with the creation of PURO Air, bringing new products to market designed to inactivate airborne pathogens including SARS-CoV-2 in occupied spaces through air ducts, HVAC systems and powerful in-room solutions. This relationship will allow Siemens Healthineers to continue to pursue their purpose of driving innovations to help humans live healthier and longer.
