Illuvia® Sense | Surgical UV Air Disinfection System

 

Illuvia® Sense is a surgical air disinfection system with sensing and reporting technologies, labeled for reducing risk of infection, and improving overall environmental safety in operating room environments.

 

  • Proven to reduce SSI risk as demonstrated in multiple clinical studies

  • Creates a safer environment through the removal of infectious bioaerosols, volatile organic compounds, surgical smoke

  • Autonomous operation using internal ultraviolet germicide and HEPA filtration to supplement operating room ventilation

  • Produces a non-turbulent supply of ultraclean air during surgical procedures that won’t interfere with existing ventilation

  • FDA-registered Class II medical device

Human Factors Engineered

The Illuvia Sense runs continuously, even in occupied rooms and does not interrupt existing workflows. Medical personnel can work in confidence, knowing the Illuvia Sense is there, quietly working in the background for the well-being of the patient and your personnel.

The Illuvia Sense is ideally suited for procedures where risk of infection is highest – such as orthopedic joint replacement, spinal surgery, implant and reconstructive procedures, long-duration procedures (>2 hours), procedures on immunocompromised patients, and patients with significant comorbidities.

THE IMPACT OF O.R. AIR QUALITY

Studies have shown that even with strict hygiene and quality standards in place, the O.R. air can be filled with significant levels of bacteria, spores, and viruses, which can be transferred from the environment to the surgical site, putting patients and hospital staff at risk.

“The Illuvia machine is part of our infection control protocol. We’ve been very happy with the machine and we’ve been really happy with the results for our team.”

SOMETIMES WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE POSES THE GREATEST RISKS.

The people in the O.R. are the dirtiest aspect of the room and are the main sources of contamination. Dangerous bacteria are riding on clothing, floating hair particles, and human skin squames (the average human sheds 10 million squames each day). These bacteria and particles land on surfaces, instruments and in incisions.

 

Illuvia Sense has been shown to reduce airborne contamination during surgery by 50-70% in peer-reviewed, published and independent studies.

WATCH HOW THE ILLUVIA SENSE WORKS

THE POWER TO ELIMINATE, NOT JUST COLLECT.

Illuvia Sense inactivates 100% viruses, 99.97% bacteria and 99.91% spores.³ With clean air confidence, you can take back control of the O.R. space.

Prefiltration: The disposable MERV 11 carbon cartridge captures larger particles, ensuring the optimum efficiency of the system.

 

Ultraviolet Photolytic Chamber: Illuvia Sense utilizes a unique patented UV reaction photolytic chamber we call INTRAVIOLET™ to slow and trap pathogens. This results in improved pathogen elimination and room safety over HEPA filtration alone.

 

HEPA Filtration: The remaining inactive particles are caught in a medical-grade HEPA filter, preventing them from returning to the air. Resulting in ultra-clean, non-turbulent supply of air.

MAXIMUM DOSE

Aerobiotix’s lntraViolet™ Core delivers an optimal UV dose that provides the highest level of pathogen inactivation.

Germicidal Lamps

High-output UV-C provides a 254 nm wavelength that inactivates pathogen DNA, making it nonviable.

UNIQUE Quartz Cylinders

Thousands of cylinders slow and suspend contaminants, which increases dwell time and exposure to UV.

UV CHAMBER

UV is constrained within the unit, protecting staff and patients from exposure.

THE DIRTY DONUT® BEFORE & AFTER ILLUVIA SENSE

Reduce the contaminants, reduce the risk.

  • The peripheral air of the room has the highest amount of bacterial contamination compared to the central zone4
  • Peripheral contamination can affect instruments, implants, gowns and be carried back to the surgical site5
