oa Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases - The microbiological impact of pulsed xenon ultraviolet disinfection on resistant bacteria, bacterial spore and fungi and viruses : review

Volume 31, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 2312-0053



Pathogens can persist in the patient care environment and cause the risk of transmission to patients. Pulsed xenon ultraviolet (PX-UV) is increasingly being used to disinfect patient rooms, operating rooms and other areas. Data on the impact of PX-UV on resistant bacteria, bacterial spores, fungi, viruses and the Ebola virus are lacking in the literature. Laboratory data are presented in this paper on the log reductions observed after the exposure of PX-UV to a variety of organisms in a laboratory setting.
