It is portable and has been shown to reduce HAI rates in numerous independent, published scientific studies as well as real-world deployments. Specifically, it can be used for Norovirus eradication, CRE/CPE outbreak, resistant NDM strains and ebola preparedness. It can also be used for ambulance bio-decontamination and many other applications.
*** This unit can be only be used by personnel who have successfully completed the two day training offered annually.
