Erlanger using new germ-destroying robot

Erlanger Health System announced the addition of a new team member Wednesday. Standing a little more than 3 feet tall, the Xenex germ-destroying robot may garner more comparisons to Star Wars R2-D2, than a new-age cleaning system. But the $80,000 robot uses a UV-C light more powerful than the Sun to kill harmful bacteria and stop the spread of viruses in hospital rooms. The machine will be used in addition to standard chemical cleaning processes at Erlanger.
