SOUTH CAROLINA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A doctor in South Carolina has created a lean, mean, germ-fighting machine.

He's using his invention to help fight the spread of Ebola.

The robot, known as Tru-D, is five feet tall. It has a UVC light, which can break down the DNA of organisms, such as viruses.

"The heart of the device are these sensors on top of the device. What these bulbs are, they produce UVC in amazingly high doses," said Dr. Jeff Deal.

The doctor has sent two of the robots to Liberia.

He's planning to head there this week to help train people there how to use the robots.

The Ebola virus has killed more than 1,100 people in West Africa.
