Photox™ was founded to develop technology that would make an important contribution to the safe delivery of healthcare. Specifically, the goal was to focus on significantly reducing the rate of health care associated infections (HAIs) from airborne contagions.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines HAIs as infections that patients acquire during the course of receiving health care treatment for other conditions. The CDC estimates that 1 out of every 20 hospitalized patients will contract an HAI.
In response, hospitals have enforced hand washing amongst employees and visitors and put great effort into the cleanliness of surfaces within their facilities. Yet, there remains another avenue of disease transmission that has not been thoroughly addressed: Airborne infectious organisms. Photox™ purification technology was developed to combat the airborne transmission of microorganisms, volatile organic compounds and odors.
While healthcare was the initial inspiration for the development of this technology, it has since become evident that Photox™ devices are beneficial in almost any indoor environment. Photox™ purification technology can also help manage allergens, mold and pet odors, in addition to viruses and bacteria. Daycares, office buildings, vet clinics and even residences can benefit from the Photox™ purification system.
