VALENCIA, Calif. (June 6, 2013) -- Moffitt Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida, is partnering with UltraViolet Devices, Inc., on environmental disinfection efforts to continue to offer superior patient care. Moffitt’s mission is to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
Moffitt, based in Tampa, Fla., has evaluated several portable ultraviolet germicidal irradiation products used to disinfect surfaces and has chosen UltraViolet Devices’ V-360 UV Room Sanitizer. The V-360 UV Room Sanitizer generates high-intensity UV energy and quickly disinfects surfaces contaminated with viruses, bacteria and fungi, including superbugs that cause illness and infection. Moffitt chose this system for its proven performance and ease of use.
“UVDI is proud to have been chosen by Moffitt Cancer Center after a thorough evaluation of the V-360 UV Room Sanitizer against other UV products,” said Richard Hayes, president of UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI). “Moffitt now joins a growing number of hospitals and health care providers who have already implemented the use of UVDI’s V-360 UV Room Sanitizer due to its superior disinfection performance aimed at decreasing hospital-associated infections. Moffitt will be one of the first in the nation to receive UVDI’s V-360+ UV Room Sanitizer, the newest and most advanced version of the V-360.”
