UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI), a manufacturer of ultraviolet technology for hospital room disinfection and indoor air quality, announces that the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer is now available on CME Corp.’s $49.5 million Defense Logistics Agency’s (DLA) Department of Defense contract. CME is a distributor of medical products.
The electronic catalog (ECAT) contract, meanwhile, streamlines procurement of the UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer—to help reduce healthcare-associated infections and to reportedly eliminate 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2 from surfaces—by a wide range of military services, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, as well as the Veterans Health Administration and Indian Health Services.
CME secured the ECAT contract, which runs until 2025, on behalf of UVDI. DLA’s Troop Support Medical Supply Chain developed ECAT to streamline DLA’s business practices and procurements. CME also services other federal, state, and county agencies with contract vehicles and open-market purchases.
The UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer can disinfect an average-sized hospital patient room in reportedly 5 to 10 minutes, according to company officials. CME’s government sales manager, Bob Charron, says, “The UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer reinforces protection and peace of mind against COVID-19, so we are thrilled to provide that in our continued partnership with the government.”
