THOR UVC® by Finsen Technologies

Finsen Technologies is an award winning UK manufacturer of THOR UVC® the latest proven highest output UVC Disinfection technology to be introduced to Hospitals on a global basis.

FINSEN recently won a prestigious export award demonstrating that UK Innovation in INFECTION PREVENTION TECHNOLOGY is contributing to reducing and combating Healthcare acquired Infections but also keeping the UK Flag flying high as a major contributor to Medical Device technology and manufacturing.

THOR UVC® is now being used in Hospitals around the world and is the most efficient and unique UVC ROBOT introduced into the Infection prevention Market. Superbugs have evolved during a ‘post-antibiotic apocalypse' in which bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites have mutated to become almost untreatable

THOR UVC ®  (http://www.finsentech.com/thor-uvc). is a unique disinfection robot that uses UV light to kill all known superbugs in just minutes, sensing its surroundings, mapping the room, and even reporting back when the work is complete. A study of the robot’s efficacy concludes that it was best in its class , irrespective of cleaning time, THOR UVC® killed more than 99.99% of the MSSA bacteria exposed to it. This game-changer could mean that patients will no longer be at risk of catching an antibiotic-resistant infection while in hospital, and infections outside the hospital environment will reduce as bugs will be unable to spread.

The high level of UV-C light produced by THOR UVC ® is critical in killing the new strains of superbug. Its reach is higher than its predecessors, obliterating bugs from floor to ceiling while ensuring even those hiding in shadowed areas don't get missed. The robot disinfects a 360-degree area – irrespective of obstacles – and senses clutter and shadows, guaranteeing effective doses in all areas.

Steve Bertuzzi, COO of Finsen Technologies, the company behind THOR UVC ®, says

“We’ve been working on new, updated UV-C technology for some time now, knowing that it is an incredibly effective means of killing most bugs. With this knowledge, we have designed something incredible – a new generation robot that generates more UV-C than its predecessors, making it faster, more efficient and less expensive. The THOR UVC® destroys almost 100% of bacteria in just minutes of use, and has applications in hospitals and beyond. We are proud to be part of this revolution in infection control.”

 

Bob Darby, Director of Infection Prevention & Control at Circle Health www.circlehealth.co.uk who run hospitals, rehabilitation and NHS health services across the UK, says:

With the challenges of controlling the rise of increasingly resistant microorganisms facing healthcare today, the need to reduce the bio-burden in the clinical environment and particularly so in high-risk areas such as operating theatres; in support of the other infection prevention and control practices; has never been higher. As part of the IPC strategy Circle Health evaluated THOR UVC® performance in Operating Theatres and other clinical environments and we were extremely impressed with the results achieved. In my opinion, the use of UV-C can be a valuable aid in this as it can; when used correctly reduce bio-burden in difficult to contact areas and will not lead to increased resistance."
