Diversey Care Rolls Out SKY 7xi, a Mobile Device Disinfection Solution

May 18, 2017

Sealed Air’s (NYSE: SEE) Diversey Care division today introduced the SKY® 7xi, a mobile device disinfection solution for healthcare environments. In one minute or less, SKY safely disinfects tablets and smartphones with high-intensity ultraviolet (UV) light that penetrates the cells of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and spores.

“Phones and tablets, which are being used with increased frequency within healthcare facilities, are extremely high-touch surfaces and potential sources of healthcare associated infections,” said Carolyn Cooke, Vice President Healthcare North America, Diversey Care. “SKY is portable and easy to use, enabling fast and effective disinfection of facility-owned, healthcare worker and visitor devices and allowing organizations to create safer and more satisfying environments of care.”

The SKY 7xi disinfects devices with targeted UVC light rather than fumes or chemicals, making it a safe and effective method for reducing handheld device pathogen transmission. It achieves up to a 5-log reduction in harmful pathogens including MRSA, VRE, MDR-Gram negative, norovirus andC. diff spores.

With desktop, wall mount and mobile cart options, SKY can be placed in multiple locations. The unique design provides 360-degree coverage and can accommodate devices up to 1 inch thick by 8 inches wide and 12 inches long.

Diversey Care is a division of Sealed Air Corp., a leader in food safety and security, facility hygiene and product protection. For more information about Diversey Care, please visitwww.diversey.com or follow us on LinkedInFacebook and Twitter. To learn more, visit www.sealedair.com.
