Biovigil Training at SUNY Downstate

About BioVigil

SUNY Downstate is implementing a new system, BioVigil in order to assist our facility with better handwashing practices.


BioVigil technology utilizes a simple room sensor, a plug-in base station and a small personnel use badge similar to a standard identification badge. The system is designed to detect and monitor hand washing events and automatically communicate compliance information to base stations located within our facility. 

The following tutorials provide training on how to use this system.

Access to the accompanying quizzes will require login using your Downstate email address and password.
