Intellego: Expert Advice for Choosing and Using UV-C Disinfection Systems for Your Facility

“Deploying UV-C technology requires meeting facility needs and ensuring they know how to use it and validate it that it’s working properly.”

Disinfection is at the forefront of everyone’s mind in a pandemic. As a result, most facilities need a portfolio of tools to support this, with UV-C being one of those. But how can organizations implement it and ensure it’s working? In this discussion, host Daniel Litwin spoke to two subject matter experts, Wendy Brady-Walling, Director of Global Marketing, Intellego Technologies, and Christine Gallo, CEO, Gallo Medical Company and IP Program.

Gallo, already in the medical industry, became a bigger advocate for infection prevention and disinfection after a family member’s health battle. “I realized we have to do better, and that’s what led me to add UV-C to the toolbox to help with this,” she said.

Gallo’s objective now is to partner with facilities to help them find funding to acquire and deploy UV-C disinfection systems and ensure it’s working by using UV-C dosimeters, which provide visual validation of disinfection. She noted that dosimeters are included in the purchase of the UV-C equipment and that her team trains staff on how to use them.

Brady-Walling discussed the many delivery systems of UV-C, from mobile towers to ceiling mounts to autonomous robots. “Pre-COVID, UV-C disinfection systems were considered ‘nice to have.’ Now they’re a ‘need to have.’ That’s why we’re focused on educating industries about its availability, safety, efficacy, and efficiency.”

The pandemic also meant using UV-C in new spaces, including restaurants, airports, gyms, and office buildings. In the healthcare setting, UV-C was in use in operating rooms. “They are using it in patient rooms prior to staff cleaning, so it’s safer for them. We just deployed it at a cancer center.”

Brady-Walling added, “They love the technology and the visual evidence from the dosimeter that it was a successful disinfection.”
