Utilizing technology from the larger GreenZapr™, the miniZapr™ deploys the same bacteria- and virus-fighting power needed to control today’s harmful microorganisms including MRSA, Staph, C. diff, HIV, Influenza (H1N1) and many other dangerous microbes. Germicidal UVC is a proven technology that has been used for more than 100 years to kill harmful microbes. Utilizing germicidal UVC technology, the miniZapr can be plugged into an ordinary wall outlet; its eight proprietary, shatter-proof UVC bulbs are designed to provide the needed energy dosage to destroy the DNA of harmful microorganisms. The mobile miniZapr can be used in locker rooms, equipment rooms, weight rooms and shower areas, and on floors, walls and any area where harmful bacteria can grow.
Each microorganism has a different level of sensitivity to UVC radiation. Some microorganisms require only a small amount of UVGI to break apart their DNA, while others require more. In order to use UVGI to effectively sterilize surfaces, the operator must understand exposure levels required, the intensity of the UVC light source, the distance from the light source to the target surface and the length of time required for optimum exposure.
The miniZapr has two distinct modules: the base unit and the handheld. The base unit is designed to operate 2.5″ from the target surface and uses 8 specifically designed UVC lamps to generate 6,874 µJ/cm² of energy assuming a standard walking speed of 2 mph and 3 passes. The handheld module requires the operator to control all aspects of exposure such as speed, distance, and the number of passes. Assuming most users will use the handheld unit approximately 2” from the target surface, at a speed of 0.5 feet/s and in 2 passes, an energy dose of 7,350 µJ/cm² is reached.
In essence, greater exposure time delivers a higher dose of energy. However, the variables contributing to UVGI exposure dosage are as follows:
|Module/Cart Speed (mph)||2||1||2||1|
|Passes over field||3||3||2||2|
|Peak Exposure @ 2.5” (µW-s/cm²)||11,125||11,125||11,125||11,125|
|Total CALCULATED Dosage (µJ/cm²)||6,874||13,748||4,583||9,165|
|Module Speed (feet per second – fps)||.5||.5||.5||.5|
|Passes over field||2||3||2||3|
|Peak Exposure @ 2” (µW-s/cm²)||—||—||4,410||4,410|
|Peak Exposure @ 3” (µW-s/cm²)||2,940||2,940||—||—|
|Total CALCULATED Dosage (µJ/cm²)||4,900||7,350||7,350||11,025|
NOTE: The green highlighted columns represent the recommended basic operation.
The operational requirements of this system are flexible and users can adjust their protocols to meet their needs. Using the basic variables listed above, each user can optimize the UVGI treatment system and design a regular treatment schedule that effectively targets microbes of particular concern. For the optimum results in any setting, however, the user should be aware that a slower, deliberate delivery method delivers significantly higher levels of exposure and more effective germicidal efficacy. Of course, a higher germicidal efficacy provides greater confidence of sterility and safety.

|General Description: The miniZapr sterilizes all hard surfaces with institutional settings, including counters, tables, hand rails, floors, cabinets, drawers, sinks, toilets, and bath/showers. This is accomplished with powerful germicidal UVC light. Harmful microorganisms such as MRSA, HIV, C-Diff, Staph and Influenza are eradicated through DNA destruction, eliminating the potential for “super bugs.” Reliable on-board power via generator or use of 50’ cord and standard wall outlet, provide the most efficient, cost-effective sanitation method available in the industry.|
