Advanced Ultra-Violet Systems, LLC. (AUVS) has announced its medical-quality infection prevention technology--known as the UV Box--is now available to the food processing and foodservice industries.

The AUVS KR615 Germicidal Enclosure was developed specifically to address the issue of mobile devices that move freely around hospitals and are known agents of cross-contamination. The same issues exist in the food processing and foodservice industries where cell phones and small tablets frequently come in close contact with food and food processing equipment. According to studies, more than 85 percent of cell phones carry significant contamination even after being cleaned with chemical wipes. Cell phones have even been described in the media as having contamination levels on par with toilets.

The KR615’s Ultra-Violet technology is proven in independent lab results and demanding medical environments to sanitize 99.9 percent of clostridium difficile, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, noroviruses, E. coli and other bacteria in just 48 seconds.                                                    

“The UV Box is effective, easy-to-use and affordable,” says AUVS CEO Jim Psihas. “And by putting this solution where the problem is—in spaces where food is processed, prepared and handled—and treating devices on an ongoing basis, we feel we can help the food processing and foodservice industries deal a major blow to foodborne contaminants and related illnesses.”
