Diversey’s MoonBeam™3 Disinfection System Wins 2017 AHE Exchange Innovation Award

Friday, August 4, 2017

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – August 4, 2017 – Sealed Air’s (NYSE: SEE) Diversey Caredivision today announced it has received the 2017 Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) Innovation Award for its MoonBeam3 Disinfection System, a device that uses powerful ultraviolet (UVC) technology to kill pathogens on high-touch surfaces. The annual Innovation Award recognizes products, processes, and technology advancements that help improve patient outcomes. Designed to be used in conjunction with manual cleaning and disinfection, the MoonBeam3 system’s three adjustable arms allow users to target the UVC dose, taking disinfection to the next level.

The arms each generate a broad umbrella (a 7 foot by 11 foot area) of intense, 254-nanometer wavelength UVC light to quickly kill pathogens. The system has been third-party tested and demonstrates three to five-log reductions in harmful pathogens such as MRSA, VRE, MDR Gram negative bacteria, and norovirus in as little as 3 minutes and C. diff spores in as little as 10 minutes.

“We are honored to receive this award, and are very excited about this portable, fast and easy-to-use innovation,” said Carolyn Cooke, Vice President, North American Healthcare Sector, Diversey Care. “Traditional UV disinfection tower designs are most effective on vertical surfaces, and often provide a lower dose of UVC to horizontal surfaces like beds or overbed tables. With adjustable coverage, MoonBeam3 allows users to direct the dose to high-touch surfaces. Plus, it is significantly more affordable to own and operate than other technologies available in the market.”

Weighing less than 40 pounds, the MoonBeam3 system is ultra-portable, enabling environmental services professionals to disinfect even tight spaces like patient restrooms. It also incorporates a number of safety features, including infrared motion sensors, proximity sensors and a physical accelerometer. The bright yellow cover acts as a safety cone to alert staff and visitors that the device is in use, and as a remote control that starts the device from outside of the room and automatically stops the cycle if entry or motion is detected.
