ARTZ Mobile Room UVC Germicidal Solutions for Pharmacy and Laboratory

American Ultraviolet has designed the ARTZ (Automatically Reliably Targeting Zero) Mobile Room Germicidal UVC Solution with the goal of targeting zero infections in the environment around the patient. The ARTZ is less expensive, more efficient, and more effective than any other comparable mobile room germicidal UV decontamination device in the marketplace. We recommend using it as the final step during terminal cleaning of patient rooms or surgical suites, or in any other areas of your facilities where harmful pathogens may be present.

Here's what makes the ARTZ so unique:

    • Vancomycin resistant enterococcus (VRE)
    • Extended Spectrum Beta Lactamase Producers (ESBL) – gram negative bacteria

Prolonged, direct exposure to UVC light can cause temporary skin redness and eye irritation, but does not cause skin cancer or cataracts. American Ultraviolet systems are designed with safety in mind and, when properly installed by a professional contractor, do not allow exposure to UV irradiation and allow for safe operation and maintenance.
