UVBioTek offers relamping services to any owner of Narrowband Ultraviolet-B Phototherapy systems, regardless of what type of system they own.
We’re committed to providing you with the highest level of patient satisfaction possible and we know you want the most efficient and effective treatments possible for your phototherapy patients.
A key factor in effective phototherapy treatment is the quality of the lamp output. In a controlled laboratory environment Philips the lamp manufacturer, found 15% drop in UV output at 150 hours of use. The effective output continues to degrade with additional use. And, short cycle times like those used in your treatments have a powerful impact on the life of the lamps.
Regular, full system re-lamping makes good medical sense:
- Improved patient compliance with shorter treatment times
- Improved patient satisfaction with consistent treatment quality
- Improved patient safety with elimination of potential spots from a mix of old and new lamps
Regular, full system re-lamping makes good financial sense:
- Increased staff productivity
- Saves on lamp costs via full re-lamping discounts
- Saves on shipping costs
Now would be a good time to do a check-up on your UVBioTek Phototherapy system. Here’s a quick check list to help you out:
- Acrylic Panels: Whenever skin comes in contact with the acrylic panels a film will be left on the panels that will build up over time and reduce the radiation level received from the lamp, clean the four acrylic panels with a soft cotton cloth and acrylic safe cleaner.
- Cabinet: Dust and dirt can accumulate on the cabinet. Every month, routine housekeeping will keep the cabinet attractive and in good condition. The bottoms of the light panels have vent slots for cooling, be sure to keep these slots free and clear of accumulated dirt and dust. A vacuum brush attachment is a good tool for keeping this area dust free.
- Lamps & Reflective: BEFORE cleaning the lamps and reflectors switch off dedicated circuit breaker. Lamps and reflectors will accumulate dust and should be cleaned at least once every six (6) months. The dust will absorb the ultraviolet radiation. Clean the lamps and reflectors with a very soft cotton cloth and a standard type “medicine cabinet” alcohol (isopropyl).
- We recommend checking your lamp usage on your system directly. If you have any questions on how to do this, please contact us.
