UV-C LEDs a new line of defense in medical applications

Hospitals and medical environments must be clean in order for them to operate in any capacity. It is vital that all rooms, equipment, and water that is being used in a medical setting must be sanitized and disinfected. If not, the consequences can be fatal.

UV-C LEDs for water disinfection are changing how hospitals and medical practitioners operate, providing guaranteed 
water disinfection in a fast and ultra-safe way.

How UV-C LEDs are fast becoming the new line of defense for medical applications

When we looked at the medical applications for our range of UV-C LED devices we saw a need to make life easier and safer for the doctors, nurses, and patients who come into contact with water.

Hospitals while cleaned to the highest standards, is a place where there is a constant influx of sick people who are entering and leaving. It is therefore almost impossible to ensure that no airborne pathogens or harmful bacteria find their way into water systems within the hospitals.

If a central water source within a hospital becomes contaminated it can have immeasurable consequences for patients in that hospital’s care.

However, UV-C LEDs are providing a solution to this challenge, able to disinfect water from the point of dispense to water being recirculated in a system. UV LED solutions for water disinfection is quicker than other conventional methods of disinfection, safer for everyone involved in the disinfection process, and easier for doctors and nurses that need clean water at the twist of a tap.

Our PearlAqua range was designed to make life easier and safe for the medical sector, designing our system so that they can be easily fitted and maintained to water systems within a hospital and provide instant disinfection.

How UV-C LEDs can be used in the medical sector

The PearlAqua harnesses the power of UV-C LED light to deliver clean, safe water to those who need it most. The system acts as a final barrier between the human body and the pathogens that attack it; assuring hospitals, nursing homes, and dental offices have the purest water possible.

The PearlAqua can kill pathogens ranging from MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) to Legionella; giving it the potential to prevent 1000s of painful, deadly hospital-acquired infections (HAI). UV-C LED disinfection is also smaller and safer than traditional UV systems so it can be incorporated into a variety of medical equipment – like autoclaves and dialysis machines.

The benefits of using UV-C LED's
in the medical sector

Healthcare providers who invest in their water invest in their patients’ care.

When doctors and nurses are able to wash their hands in legionella-free sinks, they protect their patients as well as themselves. They can cover their facility with confidence knowing they will not be the reason a child or grandmother contracts an HAI. Healthy healing starts with clean hands and clean hands start with disinfected water.

Take a look at the benefits of using UV-C LEDs:

  • UV-C LEDs do not use chemicals or mercury to disinfect​
  • It’s compact, up to 3 times smaller than traditional UV devices
  • Simple, ready-to-use design is easy to install​
  • Deep UV LEDs reach full intensity in under 10 nanoseconds – Instantaneous On/Off
  • No tank required for clean water storage
