Kenall Introduces MedMaster™ Light Fixtures Using Indigo-Clean Technology for Healthcare

Sometimes, environments meant to make us healthy can be an unintentional breeding ground for harmful bacteria, but now there is a safe, effective disinfection method that reduces the risk of hospital-acquired infections: Kenall's MedMaster™ healthcare luminaires using Indigo-Clean® Technology.

Kenall has incorporated Indigo-Clean technology into three sealed, MedMaster™ LED light fixtures-- the MPCADE, ME and AMB Series Luminaires. These luminaires combine white ambient light with 405nm Indigo light in order to kill harmful bacteria, including Staph*, such as MRSA**, and are part of a comprehensive portfolio of lighting products that Kenall has developed utilizing this exclusive and revolutionary new technology.

“Indigo-Clean technology has been tested in a laboratory setting and has been shown to kill harmful bacteria. This fixture allows healthcare facilities to install ambient lighting using on-demand disinfection in a budget-sensitive configuration,” said Dr. Cliff Yahnke, PhD, Director of Clinical Affairs for Indigo-Clean. “Unlike UV disinfection, this technology is safe for occupants, and it reaches places normal cleaning doesn’t touch,” he continued. The luminaires are recommended for areas such as patient rooms, waiting rooms, public restrooms, physical therapy areas and locker rooms.

Frank Gonzales, Director of Product Management for Kenall, also remarked on the economic advantages of the new MedMaster Luminaires using Indigo-Clean Technology, “These provide solid lighting efficacy and disinfection at basically the same cost as a standard LED luminaire. They bolster current cleaning protocols by helping eliminate harmful bacteria in more generalized healthcare spaces.”

Indigo-Clean technology uses a 405nm light to penetrate harmful bacteria, including MRSA. It targets naturally-occurring molecules within the bacteria to produce intra-cellular Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). Similar to bleach, these ROS create an oxidative environment that kills the bacteria.
