Research: evidence for validated disinfection
UV Smart supports scientific research and invests in thorough clinical and equipment tests. In many trials, the method appears to be more effective and practical than disinfection with, for example, hydrogen peroxide or disinfection wipes. Consistency has also been confirmed in a practical clinical setting with more than 1000 disinfection cycles in 2 weeks. Based on this research and the literature already available, the application of UV-C disinfection with UV Smart equipment can be confidently called ‘evidence based’. This is an overview of completed research with UV Smart equipment; more publications are expected soon.
