INTRODUCING THOR UVC®
A REVOLUTIONARY TOTAL ROOM DISINFECTION ROBOT
A UVC Robot used to terminally clean both air and surfaces and will eradicate and eliminate 99.9999% of healthcare associated infections (HAI) in minutes.

HOW CAN UVC DISINFECTION AID IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE SPREAD OF COVID-19?
The global pandemic has challenged almost every country across the world. Economies have been halted, communities put into lockdown and the healthcare sector has never been put under more pressure than it has in recent months. Wherever there is any form of human interaction, the virus could still be present and therefore deep cleaning regimes need to be rigorous to prevent further spread of this deadly disease. Manual cleaning protocols have been refined and cleaning teams across the globe are working tirelessly to ensure the safety of themselves and the wider healthcare sector. Manual cleaning, however, can only assist with surface cleaning and this is where UVC technology comes into its own.
THOR UVC® utilises 24 high output emitters, supplied to us Finsen Tech by Signify, part of the Philips Group of Companies. Signify, in conjunction with Boston University, recently tested the current pathogen with their emitters and found SARS-CoV-2 was eradicated in minutes.
We are able to verify with confidence that THOR UVC® can eradicate SARS-CoV-2,
the virus that causes COVID-19, in minutes.
REDUCING THE ACQUISITION OF HAI’S
Whilst good hand hygiene has reduced HAI’s by 50% over the last 10 years, we have now reached a point of diminishing marginal returns. Standard manual cleaning techniques can miss up to 50% of particulates on surfaces, and other methods can take hours in preparation and delivery time.
Daily use of THOR UVC® constant wave technology, was proven to reduce the acquisition of HAI’s by 37%.
THOR UVC® can be utilised in either single or multiple placements, making it the most versatile system for our end users.
HOW DOES UVC
UVC is a form of ultraviolet light with properties that make it useful for disinfection. In the simplest sense, a controlled blast of UVC light is delivered to a room, and kills the contaminants within it.
To be as effective and as safe as possible, this UVC light must be emitted by a specialised device, such as THOR UVC®. This will cause viruses and bacteria to be rapidly killed wherever the light touches, providing near-comprehensive disinfection of surfaces, air and objects within a room.
This happens because UVC light destroys genetical material. Specifically, the UVC light is absorbed by the proteins, DNA and RNA (ribonucleic acid, a vital component of all living cells and a carrier of genetic information) in any living cells reached by the UVC. The UVC then deactivates them. In the case of the proteins, it causes the rupture of cell walls. Meanwhile, it disrupts the functioning of the DNA and RNA, leaving the cells unable to replicate.
ABOUT THE MANUFACTURER
Finsen Tech was founded in 2015 with the aim of offering UVC disinfection solutions more effective and better value than the devices which were already on the market.
Finsen Tech are now a leading provider of disinfection products and services contributing to the prevention and reduction of HAI’s ( Healthcare Acquired Infections ) by delivering scientifically proven clean cost effective rapid UV-C disinfection technologies.
In more recent times, the technology has been effectively utilised across hospitality, retail, and other sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
