A disinfector disinfects an object having channels therein, such as an endoscope, by one or more light emitting diodes that emit UV-C radiation. The object, including interior channels of the object, is exposed to emissions of UV-C radiation. One or more light emitting diodes provide UV-C radiation to the interior channels of the object. Operation of the device through the channels is responsive to cumulative levels of radiation received by the sensor(s) associated with the light emitting diode(s).

Devices and methods for defining a data set, referred to herein as a signature, for a particular device having interior channels. A baseline signature is established for the particular device while the particular device is known to be in a decontaminated condition. After use of the device and subsequent decontamination of the device, a signature for the particular device is determined and compared with the baseline signature to verify that the latter signature is within an acceptable range.
