The Buyers Guide is ideal for facility managers, business owners, and management teams who are reviewing options for cleaning and disinfecting their facilities. To prepare the guide, The Mobile Robot Guide (MRG) collected technical specs for all of the automated disinfection solutions on the market. The MRG staff normalized all of the technical specs and developed a database of the product specs. From this data, the MRG editorial team reviewed, compared, and evaluated all of the solutions based on their product specs.

Mike Oitzman, founder and publisher of the Mobile Robot Guide said “We are excited to release our first buyers guide focused on a timely and critical need that facility managers and business owners are actively reviewing.” Oitzman went on to say, “AMRs have matured to the point that designing and deploying disinfection payloads on top of them is now a viable option. The number of solutions launched since January 2020, is overwhelming and we realized that our readers needed a thorough review of the market and an easier way to understand who the clear leaders are. The Mobile Robot Guide will continue to cover this market segment in detail as more solutions come to market.”

The Buyers Guide also includes educational content about the science behind UV light disinfection and its applicability to broad facility disinfection. Readers will come away with an understanding of how UV light works and what to look for in a productized disinfection solution. The guide also dives into biocide spraying so that readers will be able to decide whether this is a viable solution for their facilities’ needs.

The criteria for selecting recommended solutions was based on several criteria: (1) maturity of the solution; (2) completeness of testing/validation; (3) availability of complete product data, including product pricing and (4) production minimum of at least 50 units (at publication time). Two vendors received a “Mobile Robot Guide Recommended Rating”.
