Infection Control

Infection control is the discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated infection, a practical (rather than academic) sub-discipline of epidemiology. It is an essential, though often underrecognized and undersupported, part of the infrastructure of health care. Infection control and hospital epidemiology are akin to public health practice, practiced within the confines of a particular health-care delivery system rather than directed at society as a whole.

Infection control addresses factors related to the spread of infections within the healthcare setting (whether patient-to-patient, from patients to staff and from staff to patients, or among-staff), including prevention (via hand hygiene/hand washing, cleaning/disinfection/sterilization, vaccination, surveillance), monitoring/investigation of demonstrated or suspected spread of infection within a particular health-care setting (surveillance and outbreak investigation), and management (interruption of outbreaks). It is on this basis that the common title being adopted within health care is “Infection Prevention & Control.”


Xenex’s patented pulse xenon UV disinfection system is a pesticidal device used for the advanced environmental cleaning of healthcare facilities. The Xenex system has been repeatedly shown to integrate smoothly into hospital cleaning operations because of its speed and ease of use.
Product Overview
Pulsed-Xenon UV Lamp Using a Xenon bulb, a powerful, non-mercury form of UV light, combined with a pulse technology that generates high intensity pulses, which makes Xenex the most powerful form of UV-C.
UV Focus System Uses reflectors and movement to focus UV light towards “high touch” surfaces.
On-Board Database Logs system activity for utilization tracking and analysis.
Visible Light Filter Blocks the bright xenon pulse, so that rooms with interior glass can be treated without distraction.
Safety Features Built in safety timer, emergency stop button, automatic shutdown motion detection system.
