"Like Xenex, Terumo was founded by scientists and has been a leader in helping hospitals reduce their infection rates for many years. They share our passion for patient safety and we are very proud to partner with them to provide our LightStrike Germ-Zapping Robot technology to hospitals in Japan," said Joseph Authement, Senior Vice President of Global Sales at Xenex. "The robot is very efficient and its speed enables it to disinfect areas and rooms quickly so they can be used throughout the entire facility, including multi-bed wards, to help reduce the risk of infection throughout the hospital."

The Xenex LightStrike Germ-Zapping Robot is designed for speed, effectiveness and ease of use, which allows hospital cleaning staff to operate the robot without disrupting hospital operations. With a four- or five-minute disinfection cycle (depending on robot model), the robot can disinfect 30-62 hospital rooms per day (according to Xenex customers), including patient rooms, operating rooms, equipment rooms, emergency rooms, intensive care units and public areas. More than 400 hospitals, Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, skilled nursing, ambulatory surgery centers and long-term acute care facilities in the U.S., Africa, Canada and Europe use Xenex robots for room disinfection.
