Great News! Ultraviolet Light Robot Kills Ebola In Two Minutes!
The reason I'm covering this medical technology is because I'm seriously impressed with the concept and the green technology behind it. The Xenex unit generates UV light using xenon -- one of the noble gases -- rather than toxic mercury. So there's no toxic mercury to deal with, even when disposing of the equipment after its useful life.
So many of the approaches to disinfection in hospitals today are based on harsh, toxic chemicals that pose a secondary risk to the health of hospital patients and staff. But UV light emitted by the Xenex robot leaves no chemical residue whatsoever and requires no chemical manufacturing plant to manufacture. This is truly "light medicine" because it disinfects using specific frequencies of light.
