Infections

PRS UVC technology provides a ground-breaking solution to the problems caused by airborne infections in healthcare settings, saving countless lives in the process.

How It Works

PRS works by ‘killing’ airborne pathogens as they pass through the optical cavity. It is highly adaptable and can be integrated into most HVAC configurations, depending on how air is currently treated, the amount of recirculation (if any) and the level of airflow between wards.

Whether installed in a specific ward or throughout the building, our technology will ensure that any airborne viral load, within that area, will be removed every time the air is exchanged.

We lead the world in UVC anti-pathogen efficacy, having proved our technology with the most stringent, live virus testing, in a BSL3 lab. Full testing information can be found here.

 

 

Saves Lives

PRS installation greatly reduces intra-ward airborne infections saving lives

 

Proven Efficacy

World-leading UVC solution inactivates all airborne pathogens in air circulation.

Cost Efficent

Significant savings through increased energy efficiency and reduced staff sickness  

 

Bespoke Design

Systems are designed to suit the specific air handling parameters of any building

We offer a complete bespoke solution. PRS units are often integrated into existing HVAC systems, continually treating the air as it continues to cirulate, ensuring safe air for all inhabitants. Where also build smaller versions to suit localised recirucaltion systems.

All air passing through the Optical Cavity will be treated with high-power UVC and airborne viruses, moulds and bacteria will be inactivated.

Why PRS

Pathogen Reduction Solutions Ltd (PRS) is a pioneering Indoor Air Quality technology and research business established to transform the way we manage airborne pathogens in indoor environments.

Our proprietary UVC-based technology provides hospitals and large healthcare settings with a cutting-edge solution to protect patients and stuff, by ensuring safe, uncontaminated air within a building.

Patents-pending and world class bio-lab verified, our system instantly inactivates airborne pathogens traveling through the optical cavity. Click here to view the BSL3 lab test results.

In addition to saving the lives of patients and staff, PRS delivers huge economic benefits through increased productivity and reduced length of hospital stays for patients.

PRS provides sustained economic and environmental benefits, significantly reducing energy costs and importantly, carbon footprints, as well as creating a healthier environment for all.

 

KEY BENEFITS

  • Protects patients and staff
  • Reduces all airborne infections
  • Air recircurculation is safe to use
  • Energy efficient vs fresh air use
  • Powerful, energy efficient solution
  • Simple operation, low maintenance

 

FAQ

What does the system do?

We offer a range of UVC-based solutions, all using our ‘patents pending’ optical cavity and safety design elements, to inactivate pathogens in moving air and create safer environments – Any Pathogen – Any Space – Any Environment. 

Our system will instantly ‘kill’ any airborne pathogen that passes through the optical cavity. Our technology has fully been tested on SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, Measles and Aspergillus Niger. 

View our System page for more detailed information.

How do I know it works?

As a science-led company we believe that the highest quality testing should be carried out with ‘live’ pathogens, rather than surrogates, and that test conditions should be as close to real works as possible.

To this end, efficacy testing has been carried out with live pathogens: Measles, Flu A, SARS-CoV-2 and Aspergillus Niger, in a Bio 3 safety level Laboratory, using a modified ASHRAE 185/ISO 15714 single pass testing standard protocol. Our adaptation meant tougher testing: air speed increased from 2.5 m/s to 6m/s, creating a residence time of only a sixth of a second, and the use of live viruses instead of surrogates.

Details of testing can be found here.

Is your system safe?

We have carried out advanced electrical safety testing (to domestic standards) and UVC safety testing. Our patent-pending optical cavity design ensures UVC is contained within the optical cavity and therefore can not damage infrastructure within existing ventilation systems or pose a risk to personnel.

Safety certification details can be found here.

How does your system integrate into my hospital?

We all need safe air to breath. Beyond that simple statement every space is different. The great thing about PRS is so are we.

Being a science-based company, we view problems differently. We have solutions, tested efficacy, and scalable design, and we can apply this to Any Pathogen – Any Space – Any Environment.

PRS systems can be integrated into existing plant, whether that is a centralised HVAC system, localised fan-coils, or rooms without any existing mechanical air-handling. We look at your space, existing plant, and individual needs, then build a specific solution for you.

How does PRS help the environment?

The need for infection resilient environments and better indoor air quality IAQ is a given, trying to balance this with our moral and legislative duty to reduce carbon emissions can seem like opposing goals. PRS with its unique approach, and patents pending design features can help you achieve both.

Being able to recirculate air, because it has been safely treated to inactive pathogens, removes the need to heat and cool vast amounts of air within your environment, saving fuel and reducing equipment degradation, reducing your carbon footprint. 

No other units on the market today produces higher levels of UVC irradiation as a ratio to energy usage than PRS, together with our bespoke design for every environment and world leading test data we are able to maximise efficacy whilst minimising power consumption, again helping your carbon footprint. 

Continuous product development has led to the use of material components that last longer, for example lamps last 60,000 hrs meaning less raw material used.

What is the lifetime of a unit?

If maintained correctly units will last for at least 25 years.

What are the maintenance requirements?

Bio-annual checks should be carried out. As with all mechanical equipment, some parts will need to be periodically replaced over the life of the system. For example:

– Lamps burn for 60,000 hours.

– Ballasts typically last 5 years.

Individual maintenance contracts are designed for each client’s needs.
