Design for ISO testing compliance

The devices of the kit are designed for usability and considering the standards specified in WP1.

It is important to mention that the risk of exposure to UV-C light, when using the sterilizer, has been considered, in accordance with ISO 15858:2016 proposals. To avoid UV-C light exposure different design decisions have been taken into account:

  • First, the sterilizer incorporates a protecting cover, not just for avoiding collisions and eventual damage to the UV-C lamps, but especially for safe operation.

  • Second, the sterilizer incorporates a 30s timer and a user-friendly interface, in order to help users adjust the sterilization time and to give user enough time for activating the sterilization process and leaving the sterilization room, before the UV-C lamps are actually lighted.
