OhmniLabs has introduced OhmniClean, a fully autonomous robot that disinfects utilizing the power of UV-C light. Weighing just 58 pounds, OhmniClean is the world's lightest and most user-friendly high-powered UV-C disinfection robot available, its maker claims. Ideal for use in hospitals, schools, hotels and other environments that require deep cleaning in high-touch, hard-to-reach places, OhmniClean aims to eliminate the risk of bacteria and viral transmission and can disinfect a 3,000 sq ft space in less than 15 minutes.
"We developed OhmniClean to address a critical need in the market for fast, simple and effective disinfection," said Tra Vu, chief operating officer at OhmniLabs. "At a time when sterile cleaning and infection control are top of mind, OhmniClean is helping to restore normalcy by simplifying existing cleaning processes and making disinfection more intelligent through providing access to efficacy and compliance data. In addition, OhmniClean is made in the USA so we are able to bypass global shipping and supply chain issues currently faced by other manufacturers."
While ultraviolet light has been used as a disinfectant for decades, UV-C has been proven to reduce overall bacterial counts on high-touch surfaces. Furthermore, research shows that the COVID-19 virus is highly vulnerable to this form of UV light and can be inactivated using OhmniClean's autonomous UV-C Disinfection solution. Independent testing shows that OhmniClean's continuous 254nm UV-C Disinfection solution rapidly eliminates pathogens like MRSA, VRE, P. aeruginosa, E. coli and SARS-CoV-2 with an efficacy of 99.999%. This ensures a safer, cleaner environment for users, staff and visitors.
"The OhmniClean robot is incredibly easy to use," said Hector Garcia, president of ProClean Janitorial. "My team was able to get it up and running after just ten minutes of training. The robot's autonomy allows our staff to clean multiple rooms while the robot disinfects other areas of a property. The whole process is quick and efficient."
