Product: Cubby Plus
Top Line: Vioguard, a leading supplier of ultraviolet light disinfecting solutions, is now offering Cubby Plus, the first and only FDA-cleared UV-C medical device, for sale to optical retailers and eyecare practices.
Close Up: With the Cubby Plus, simply lay items on the transparent shelf and let bacteria-blasting UV-C light get to work. The UV-C light, which is emitted from all directions, kills greater than 99.99 percent of even the most problematic Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) in under 60 seconds at the molecular level, according to Viogard. Patented dosimeter technology measures the UV-C level to ensure delivery of the precise amount of light required to destroy infectious agents. Effectiveness is guaranteed by the patented dosimeter technology, the same underlying engineering technology as the Vioguard Defender. Cubby Plus can also sanitize small items such as cell phones, keys, pens and name badges.
Vital Stats: Vioguard conducted a case study using their Cubby Plus sanitation chamber to see if its UV-C light technology effectively cleans eyeglasses without damaging the lenses. The study found that of all the eyeglasses tested, 95 percent had high levels of bacteria present, which is transferred from one’s hands when touching or trying on the glasses in a retail store. The case study concluded that Vioguard’s Cubby Plus is a safe and efficient sanitizing solution for frames and lenses.
