UVD Robots for UV-C Disinfection

What is UV-C disinfection?

UV-C disinfection utilises UV-C light at wave lengths of 200 to 300 nm to destroy the DNA structure of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi in seconds, leaving the microorganisms inactive and unable to spread, preventing further infection. This form of disinfection has a sufficiently high irradiance ensuring the UV-C disinfection is reliable and environmentally friendly.

Why use a UVD robot?

There are several options available for facilities and businesses when it comes to UV-C disinfection, but shadowing must be considered. UV-C light can only disinfect surfaces that it can reach which can create problems areas that are shadowed. UVD Robots have created innovative technology to solve this issue.

By combining UV-C disinfection technology with an autonomous robot, UVD Robots have created a reliable solution that significantly reduces the likelihood of shadowing.

How does it work?

Once the UVD Robot has been programmed with a
map of your facility, it is able to function fully autonomously and will make
its way around corridors and rooms, disinfecting configured areas
. UV-C light is harmful to humans so the benefit of the UVD Robot technology is that it doesn’t need manually moving and works off a tablet device, meaning there is limited risk to the end-user. 

Sychem, in partnership with, Danish company UVD Robots, are pleased to be offering the next generation of innovative UV-C Disinfection technology to the UK. UVD Robots have integrated proven UVC germicidal industrial solutions with advanced robot technologies, resulting in an innovative product that allows facilities to eradicate harmful pathogens and superbugs reliably and efficiently

UVD Robot for UV-C Disinfection


UVD Robot Model B

2nd generation autonomous UV-C disinfection

This robot was developed for disinfection at hospitals, including operating theatres, patient rooms, corridors, and larger areas as long as the distance and disinfection time are enough to reach all the targeted areas. Model B is robust and designed to disinfect large areas as airports, warehouses etc.  

  • Reduces hospital acquired infections (HAIs)
  • Clinically tested and verified
  • Workflow optimisation
  • 10-minute disinfection time
  • Kills 99.999% of bacteria

UVD Robot Model C

3rd generation autonomous UV-C disinfection

A fully autonomous system delivering fast, chemical free, hospital grade disinfection for offices, hotels, airports, cruise ships, shopping malls and residentials etc. without human interaction. Model C is agile and easily integrated into the cleaning routine – no previous infection control know-how required.

  • Autonomous
  • Small footprint
  • Workflow optimisation
  • 10-minute disinfection time
  • Kills 99.999% of bacteria

Validating UV-C Disinfection

Sychem are also pleased to offer validation consumables to work alongside your UVD Robot. These products are placed in areas prone to shadowing and will prove if the UVD Robots technology has reached these areas as the chemical dye will change colour when touched by UV radiation.

Key benefits of using a UVD Robot:

Decontaminates 25m2 in 10 minutes

Using a UVD Robot, you can decontaminate a 25 square metre area in 10 minutes, killing 99.999% of all bacteria and viruses.

Fully autonomous

With their fully autonomous design, this eliminates the chance for human error when disinfecting and decontaminating your facility / chosen area.

No shadowing

Using its autonomous robotic platform, the UVD Robot is able to reposition itself around shadow-causing objects, resulting in a more complete disinfection of the desired area.

User friendly

The UVD Robot is easy to program with training provided by Sychem. Fast operation with validation reports available, switch to UVC technology today!

Trialled and tested technology  

Independently tested for microbial kill against various bacteria, fungi and yeast- giving you peace of mind that your facility is protected.

Destruction of c.diff spores and resistant pathogens

Say goodbye to c.diff spores with reduction to log 4 in 3 minutes and the elimination of pathogens that are commonly left after manual cleaning.

UVD Robots are the future…

Proven to be effective against Clostridium difficile, Staphylococcus aureus, Methicillin-resistente Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-resistente Entercoccus faecialis (VRE) and Norovirus, UVD Robots are the future of UV-C Disinfection in a variety of environments and applications.
