Melville, NY. March 22, 2022 – Leviton Lighting brand Viscor announced today they are launching a new Certolux MSU-DFX luminaire featuring 365DisInFx UVA technology designed to promote cleaner surgical suites. This is the first luminaire Viscor’s Certolux brand has released featuring 365DisInFx UVA Technology since Leviton Lighting brands announced they were licensing the technology for incorporation into their portfolio in 2020.

“Our new MSU-DFX luminaire provides an innovative and highly effective UVA technology intended for operating rooms that can help reduce bacteria, which is the most common source of surgical site infections,” said Tim Stevens, director of product management, Certolux. “This unique technology combined within Certolux’s best-in-class surgical luminaire, provides superior illumination, disinfection, and simplicity.”

The new surgical luminaire with DFX technology has the added benefit of 365nm UVA light. This technology provides a controlled amount of UVA light to reduce the bacteria on surfaces within surgical suites. The use of this low-energy invisible light near the visible spectrum is suitable for 24-hour human exposure yet dramatically reduces bacteria.

“Viscor is thrilled to offer its first disinfection luminaire under the Certolux brand,” said Pierre Legare, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Viscor. “The addition of Certolux’s MSU-DFX luminaire is in alignment with our strategy to offer the most comprehensive healthcare lighting portfolio in the market.”
