Automated Device Disinfection at the Point of Care

  • Cost-effective, fixed price budget
  • Highly compatible with medical devices/medical grade (plastics) to help avoid damage
  • Eliminates disinfectant supply shortages65
  • Reduces the billions of wipes landfilled each year
  • Helps protect staff from chemical disinfectant health risks4
  • Disinfection assurance for your non-critical devices, personal and clinical equipment

Uses process controls and efficacy validation similar to SPD

Today's device disinfection practices can be time-consuming, costly, and ineffective36

Up to 52% of devices may remain contaminated even after the use of disinfectant wipes1


The Disconnect with Disinfection

Up to 97% of common healthcare equipment may be contaminated with multiple organisms

For disinfection wipes to be effective, users must know device composition, the target pathogen, and observe appropriate wet contact times.10,36 Up to 52% of nurses surveyed could not identify correct wet contact times.3

In an APIC online survey of 11,922 U.S.-based infection preventionist members, 39% reported insufficient stock of disinfection products

Domestic manufacturing allows one AURA-D Cartridge to replace up to 60 canisters of frequently unavailable disinfectant wipes.64

Study finds significant association between chemical disinfectant exposure and increased risk for COPD

In a recent 6-year JAMA Network Open cohort study of 73,262 nurses, weekly occupational exposure to chemical disinfectants was significantly associated with a 25-38% increased risk of developing COPD, independent of smoking and asthma.4

Device damage due to improper or residual chemical exposure can be a drain on hospital resources

Chemical disinfectants can cause environmental stress cracking damage to devices, leading to costly premature replacement or repair.5 Up to 20% of plastic equipment fails due to environmental stress cracking.6
