This UV-C disinfection device is now proven effective in seconds against SARS-CoV-2

by Brianna Crandall — December 7, 2020 — Diversey, a global provider of healthcare and infection prevention solutions, recently announced it has received confirmation through third-party testing that its MoonBeam3 UV-C disinfection technology is effective in just seconds against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

MoonBeam3 is an ultraviolet-C disinfection device designed to add assurance beyond manual cleaning and disinfection. The portable, powerful solution is engineered to disinfect quickly, reliably and responsibly. The company says it is cost-effective and designed for fast disinfection of public and high-risk areas. The system offers three individually adjustable arms that can be positioned at almost any angle, optimizing disinfection energy to allow dosing of both horizontal and vertical surfaces, in just 3 minutes.

The MoonBeam3 UV-C disinfection device has undergone third-party testing against several microorganisms including enveloped viruses, small non-enveloped viruses, bacteria and bacterial spores. These tests have demonstrated a significant log reduction in these key pathogens.

Since studies have shown that contamination of environmental surfaces in healthcare facilities with SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA is widespread, Diversey commissioned third-party testing of MoonBeam3 in the US, and has also partnered with the highly respected Fujita Health University in Japan to test the effectiveness of the MoonBeam3 against SARS-CoV-2. The completed test results from Japan verified that MoonBeam3 was effective against SARS-CoV-2 under a range of conditions with contact times as low as 4 seconds for a 6 log reduction.

This study validates that MoonBeam3 is effective against the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus.
