Diversey Announces MoonBeam™3 Effective Against SARS-CoV-2 in Seconds

Oct 14, 2020


Diversey, Inc., a global leader in healthcare and infection prevention solutions, today announced it has received confirmation through third party testing that MoonBeam™3 Disinfection Technology© is effective in just seconds against SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19. 

Moonbeam3™ is an ultraviolet-C device that provides an additional reduction of contamination on pre-cleaned and disinfected medical devices and surfaces, to give additional assurances for the healthcare facilities. MoonBeam3 has undergone third party testing against several microorganisms including enveloped viruses, small non-enveloped viruses, bacteria and bacterial spores. These tests have demonstrated a significant log reduction in these key pathogens.

Since studies have shown that contamination of environmental surfaces in healthcare facilities with SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA is widespread, Diversey commissioned 3rd party testing of MoonBeam3 in the US, and has also partnered with the highly respected Fujita Health University in Japan, to test the effectiveness of (the UV-C light from) MoonBeam3 against SARS-CoV-2.

The completed test results from Japan proved that MoonBeam3 was effective against SARS-CoV-2 under a range of conditions with contact times as low as 4 seconds for a 6 log reduction. This study validates that MoonBeam3 provides an additional reduction of contamination on pre-cleaned and disinfected medical devices and surfaces of SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen that causes COVID-19."
