DANBURY, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spectra254, a developer of high-power, easy-to-use, affordable UVC light decontamination systems, has released a recent study by Johns Hopkins Medicine that reports that Spectra254’s Spectra 1000 Series of UV light decontamination system is highly effective in killing three major healthcare-acquired pathogens recently named by the Center for Disease Control as urgent or serious public health threats.

The Department of Hospital Epidemiology and Infection Control at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore conducted the 2014 study on the Spectra 1000 Series. The device was tested in an unoccupied, fully furnished intensive care hospital room and bathroom. The conclusion from the testing is that the Spectra 1000 Series delivers so much UV energy that it has the potential to kill pathogens directly and indirectly exposed to the UVC light.
