New Sealed Lighting with Indigo-Clean Disinfection Helps Pharmacies Meet USP 800 Requirements
Date:12/6/2019

In order to help pharmacies meet the requirements for USP 800, targeted for implementation this month, Kenall is introducing the CSEDOIC luminaire series. CSEDOIC fixtures are designed for healthcare cleanrooms, where air pressure must be tightly controlled. USP 800 now requires the unpacking of hazardous drugs (HDs) and HD-active pharmaceutical ingredients from the original container be done in neutral pressure or negative pressure rooms to reduce the risk of airborne contamination outside the pharmacy area – making sealed light fixtures critical to room design.

The CSEDOIC series also utilizes Indigo-Clean Visible Light Disinfection to kill harmful bacteria that may be inadvertently introduced into the healthcare cleanroom environment, accidentally contaminating sterile preparations. This unique new light fixture, pairing bacteria-killing technology with a sealed housing, is a cutting-edge way to meet and exceed USP 797 and 800 requirements in the healthcare space.

The fixture’s dual-mode Indigo-Clean technology provides white ambient light with disinfection in occupied spaces, and switches automatically to full Indigo mode to maximize disinfection when the room is unoccupied. A dedicated occupancy sensing system assures proper mode control. “This is a completely unique product designed specifically for pharmacies that must now meet the demands of USP 797 and 800,” said Tim Stevens, Kenall’s product manager. “It addresses the needs of the pharmacy space and helps ensure patients receive quality pharmaceuticals, free from contaminants,” he continued.

Indigo-Clean is a proven and patented technology that launched in 2015 to the healthcare industry. It is currently being used to disinfect operating rooms, emergency departments and other critical care areas in medical facilities across the United States. A July 2019 American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC) peer-reviewed study reported a bacterial reduction of more than 85%. The new light fixture is recommended for the following areas:

  • Hospital pharmacies
  • Compounding pharmacies
  • Anteroom pharmacies
