“The simplicity and safety of the device got us initially interested. Safety of staff and the environment are very important values for Optilab.

Having simple automation for safeguarding the cleanliness of our laboratory is of course fantastic too. The blue light reaches places that are difficult to disinfect with chemicals.

In our work, it’s critical to prevent cross contamination. Having blue light alongside our regular cleaning routines gives us peace of mind that everything is under control."

- Ulf Thorpert, laboratory manager, and Annika Liljeskog, laboratory assistant, of Optilab

“Why we chose Spectral Blue visible blue light devices instead of UV radiation in our biosafety cabinets?

In the decision, we looked at three things. First, we are committed to providing high quality and reliable results to our partners and customers. There is no room for contamination in our samples. With Spectral Blue, we know that the decontamination process works every day with the same efficiency.

Second, we take pride in taking good care of our employees. We want to use technologies that take into account their safety and wellbeing. Replacing dangerous UVC and reducing the use of toxic chemicals is an obvious choice for us.

Last, but not least, we want to make our operations as sustainable as possible. The Spectral Blue devices have a very long lifetime and do not contain mercury or generate ozone. This is important not only for us, but also for our customers and partners. Together with them, we want to reduce the environmental footprint of the whole value chain.

Spectral Blue delivers all these things and setting up the device took us no more than 30 seconds. We couldn’t be happier."

”Microbial exposure of our working environment and premises can constantly be retained on an appropriate level by using photon disinfection. Blue light is very suitable for this purpose, since it’s safe and does not harm materials. LED Tailor delivered a comprehensive disinfection solution quickly and easily. In the future LED Tailor’s solutions can be introduced in to our other premises too.”

“The number of particles less than 1.0 µm in diameter decreased by over 98% and that of particles 1.0–5.0 µm in diameter by over 60%, so we are extremely happy with the outcome! Tubes for specialized medical care must be sterilized before delivery to the customer, and thanks to the LED Tailor solution our sterilization costs have clearly come down. The system has now been in place for more than two years. We reached the current level of cleanliness within the first month, so the situation is very stable.”

- Jarmo Nykänen, Plant Manager, Salofa Oy, Finland

(see the complete reference card on LED Tailor website)

"The automatic, disinfecting blue lights in the toilets work fine and require no attention from the staff. Thanks to LED Tailor products, this year we were able to prevent the spread of the annual stomach epidemic for the first time! In addition to general well-being, the investment has also brought us savings, since staff absences decreased significantly during the epidemic as compared to previous years."

- Elina Konsala, HR Manager, Viola Nursing Home
(see the complete reference card on LED Tailor website)

Dental clinics

“The photon disinfection system gives us better surface hygiene, improving occupational safety and raising employees’ energy levels. It’s important to us to minimise the risk of infection to particularly vulnerable patients.”

- Tiina Yrjö-Koskinen, dentist, private clinic
(see the complete reference card on LED Tailor website)

Ambulances

“Hygiene requirements in healthcare are demanding, and high-quality disinfection of treatment facilities is in a more and more significant role. The blue light system has been in use in our cars approximately for six months now. We have been satisfied, the equipment has worked properly and flawlessly.”

- Jari Nyrhinen, the principal chief in medical transport, the procurement department of Keski-Uusimaa Rescue Department
(see the complete article on Profile Vehicles website)

Veterinary clinics

”Convenient size of the mobile blue disinfection device makes it easy to be moved around from one room to another. That’s why it’s almost always in use somewhere in the background, so improving the level of surface hygiene is indeed effortless.”

- Erica Lindell, Veterinarian, Vet Clinic Veterica
(see the complete reference card on LED Tailor website)

“Surface hygiene is so easy to maintain with the blue lights in place! We had tried in vain to clean the traction mat on the treatment table several times, yet just after one night with the lights the blood stains could simply be wiped off the stitching! The result is so positive we intend to have our other facilities treated as well, such as the operating room and the dental care facilities.”

- Jouni Niemi, Head of Development and Veterinarian
(see the complete reference card on LED Tailor website)

Schools & daycare

“The disinfection system was installed three weeks ago when the stomach flu period was at its worst. The effect was astonishing — the number of children with the flu remained extremely low. In our other unit, which has no disinfection system, the flu infected more than half of the children. It will be interesting to see if the system also decreases sickness in children in the long term.”

- Päivi Isopuro, Director of Kindergarten
