Viken Detection, provider of homeland security x-ray imaging and analytical devices, has entered into a partnership with OptiSolve Ltd., a technology provider for clean, healthy and safe spaces.
Viken will assist with the development of OptiSolve Pathfinder, a new proprietary surface imaging technology. This system provides intensity map images and spatially-specific data of contamination on surfaces.
“It’s important to regain public confidence that cleaning at work, in schools, public buildings and on public transportation is effective, safe, and free from potential pathogens” says Jim Ryan, CEO of Viken Detection. “This is a landmark partnership that brings together the leaders in imaging devices and environmental surveillance, to work alongside other measures like vaccines, to enable local communities and business to live and operate safely.”
OptiSolve Pathfinder is a proprietary environmental hygiene tool that generates images of contamination on hard, nonporous surfaces. To achieve meaningful adoption, OptiSolve integrates data and results in a cloud-based quality management software that aligns with current infection prevention best practices.
The new OptiSolve Pathfinder device will be released for purchase in May 2021. Initial production units have already been deployed and have received excellent feedback from end users.
