Two-Year Agreement Streamlines Use of Advanced UV Room Disinfection in Hospitals Throughout Saudi Arabia
(BUSINESS WIRE) -- UltraViolet Devices Inc. (UVDI), a leading global manufacturer of advanced Ultraviolet (UV) technology for Hospital Room Disinfection and Indoor Air Quality, announced today that the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer has been awarded a two-year tender with the National Unified Procurement Company (NUPCO) in Saudi Arabia. NUPCO is Saudi Arabia’s leading entity for medical device procurement, logistics and supply chain management for government hospitals. The tender streamlines procurement of the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer for nearly 400 government hospitals operated by the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Interior, National Guard, University Hospitals and Specialized Hospitals. Seven new UVDI-360 Room Sanitizers have already shipped to Saudi Arabia as a result of the two-year tender.
The NUPCO tender, reference number NPT0009/22, supports rapid UV device deployment to Saudi Arabian government hospitals, due to pre-negotiated pricing and by eliminating lead times. The contract was awarded after NUPCO’s rigorous review process and runs through 2025.
The UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer provides enhanced patient protection by disinfecting high-risk microorganisms from surfaces after manual cleaning and disinfecting. The UVDI-360 is independently proven to provide 99.99% inactivation of 35 microorganisms in 5 minutes at 2.44 meters (8 feet) distance - and Candida auris in 20 minutes. Its effectiveness has also been independently demonstrated in 23 clinical and laboratory studies. The UVDI-360 is distributed in Saudi Arabia by the Scientific and Medical Equipment House (SMEH) Corporation and UVDI is represented by Richmond Enterprises across the Middle East region.
“This exciting milestone can elevate patient care across Saudi Arabia by enabling the use of advanced UV disinfection technology in thousands of hospital rooms,” stated Ronnie Pegna, CEO, Richmond Enterprises. “We are grateful for NUPCO’s leadership to enable greater protection and safety of hospital patients, employees and visitors.”
“UVDI believes all patients should come home from the hospitals healthier than when they arrived,” added Richard Hayes, President, UVDI. “Thanks to the commitment of NUPCO, that promise can be efficiently realized to new levels throughout Saudi Arabia. We are proud and grateful to provide our advanced ‘No-Touch’ UV-C technology to help improve patient outcomes.”
