Special to The Freeman

June 26, 2015

KENOSHA Kenosha-based Kenall Manufacturing is introducing Indigo-Clean, a light fixture that uses Continuous Environmental Disinfection technology to continuously kill harmful bacteria linked to hospital acquired infections.

The technology behind Indigo-Clean inactivates a wide range of micro-organisms that are known causes of hospital acquired infections, including MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), C. difficult and VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus).

Indigo-Clean is a light fixture manufactured through an exclusive licensing agreement with the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, which developed, proved and patented the technology.

The light operates continuously, automatically killing bacteria in the air and on all surfaces, reducing the risk of human error. It uses 405nm visible light rather than harmful UV and is safe for patients, staff, and surfaces. No special or additional training is required.

There are three product configurations to choose from to balance cost, effectiveness, and visual preference for each application.

Kenall is ready to start commercial production of the technology immediately.
