Disinfecting – Ultraviolet Light – C Diff.

“Don’t try this at home” –

This one is not real relevant to our operation, but it’s a neat idea, and represents real progress in disinfecting hospital environments.

Basically this guy has invented a “robot” that emits UV and gets better results  than conventional disinfectants on things like C. Diff.  He’s showing C Diff reductions of 75% in multiple hospital tests.

Very cool approach to a very nasty problem.
