The major parameters of the SteriPulse RS 3000 XL by Xenon Corp have been compared with the parameters of XeMaticA-2LFA, the fully automatic two lamp system with an interactive LCD display, and with the basic one lamp semi-automatic XeMaticA-SA-1L. The comparison table shows that SteriBeam systems have many advantages over the system from Xenon Corp as follows:
- Both are one compact bench-tops, whereas the PL system Xenon Corp has three large pieces
- Both have water-cooled Xe-gas filled flash lamps, preventing a heat wave to samples (generated by the air cooled flash lamp of the Xenon system)
- Ours has almost silent operation, whereas an air blower on the Xenon system is very loud
- Both our systems have changeable distances between the sample shelf and lamps vs fixed positioned at the Xenon system
- Ours have changeable reflectors of various sizes, allowing the variation of UV fluxes at the same pulse energy, and this feature is absent at Xenon
- Ours have much higher UVC doses per pulse at the same energies as the Xenon system
- Ours both have convenient operations with visible controls, absent on the Xenon system
In addition, the semi-automatic model produces pulse energy up to 1,000J/pulse, allowing UVC fluxes up to 2J/cm²/pulse and 1J/cm²/pulse for our fully automatic system, whereas the system from Xenon has UVC pulse fluxes that are a few times lower. The fully automatic system has a convenient coloured interactive 5.7in display, whereas the system from Xenon has toggle switchers and no displays whatsoever.
In summary, SteriBeam systems have a higher performance-to-price ratio. The actual table is available on request.
