ROC has the experience and knowledge to advise you on all your disinfection
needs and provide you with products tailored to your situation.
“Properties of an Ideal Disinfectant”
- Rutala , Weber. Infect Control Hospital Epidemiol
Persistence-should have sustained antimicrobial activity
Easy to use
Economical-cost should not be prohibitively high
Soluble (in water) and stable (in concentrate and use dilution)
Cleaner (good cleaning properties) and nonflammable
Broad spectrum-wide antimicrobial spectrum
Fast acting-should produce a rapid kill
Remains Wet-meet listed kill/contact times with a single application
Not affected by environmental factors-active in the presence of organic matter
Nontoxic-not irritating to user
Surface compatibility-should not corrode instruments and metallic surfaces
ROC PRODUCTS MEET ALL OF THESE REQUIREMENTS
Protect your patients, co-worker and yourself
How it works
(State of the Art Technology)
ADDRESSING CROSS CONTAMINATION WITH HANDHELD DEVICES
Technology: Advanced UV Systems (AUVS)
The AUVS patented technology and design is based on an innovative UV enhancement or “photon multiplication” technology that permits the use of relatively low power UV sources to achieve high microbial kill levels. This enclosed UV system technology permits the creation of very intense, highly uniform UV doses without increasing the input power. The approach is analogous to that of a microwave or a laser cavity, a photon trap.
Reflective cavity technology is designed to assure that UV energy reflects to every location in the cavity from every direction. No shadows and equal kill anywhere within the chamber.
Provides over a ≥4.5 log kill in 45 seconds for C-Diff Spores.

Small Device Cross Contamination
A given test surface area could be measured as follows:
Log 1 = 1,000,000 CFU’s reduced to 100,000 (90%)
Log 2 = 1,000,000 CFU’s reduced to 10,000 (99%)
Log 3 = 1,000,000 CFU’s reduced to 1,000 (99.9%
Log 6 = 1,000,000 CFU’s reduced to 1 CFU
Which cannot reproduce !!! (99.9999%)
This Graph shows the results log reductions have on a test area with 1,000,000 CFU’s
For Example: a 4-log Reduction on a surface with 1,000,000 CFU’s, which is written
as 99% reduction in potentially harmful micro-organisms. Log reduction means a
10-fold (one decimal place) or 90% reduction in the CFU’s.
Note: “Log” is short for logarithm, which is a power to which a base, such as 10, can be raised to produce a given number.
The Human Cost of Falling
Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall
The nation spends $50 billion a year treating older adults for the effects of falls
50% of seniors who have been on the floor for over an hour after a fall will die within six months from related complications
Fall risk management is a key quality measure within Assisted Living Facilities/ Independent Living Facilities (ALF/ILF)
