Webinar Overview

R-Zero’s Director of Clinical Studies, Dr. Carolina Koutras, partnered with Dr. Edward Nardell of Harvard Medical School and Dr. David Brenner of Columbia University Medical Center to discuss the utilization of ultraviolet radiation in healthcare environments.


Drawing from their shared expertise in the field of disinfection using ultraviolet germicidal light, these experts discuss:

  • Achieving continuous, autonomous disinfection via both well-developed and emerging UV-C technologies
  • Understanding the safety and efficacy considerations of various UV applications
  • Implementing germicidal UV lamps and fixtures to enhance existing HVAC and filtration

Watch now to learn best practices for incorporating UV-C disinfection into your healthcare facility. 


“The three established and proven air disinfection technologies are mechanical ventilation, upper room GUV, and portable room air cleaners. Of these, upper room UV is the most cost-effective and is demonstrably safe and readily available to deploy today to reduce COVID-19 and other respiratory virus transmission. Far-UVC is available, even safer, and may be a more effective air disinfection technology...”
