A link clearly exists between bioburden found on healthcare surfaces and HAIs (Healthcare Acquired Infections). Manual environmental disinfection practices are necessary to reduce these bioburdens, but are far from perfect. Staff miss and improperly disinfect surfaces and microbes repopulate almost immediately after manual disinfection has occurred.
PROTECTION EVERY SECOND OF THEIR STAY.
Why decide which patients to protect when you can protect all your patients all the time?
Now imagine the impact of an automated (?) method that could continuously reduce bioburdens facility wide. A method that is truly “No Touch”—no human interaction. A method that mimics a process that occurs in nature to safely and continuously eradicate dangerous bioburden on surfaces and in the air.
CASPR Medik utilizes that method with a Photocatalytic Conversion Device that is designed to convert H2O and O2 in the air into safe but effective levels of Hydroxyl Radicals (OH-), Oxygen ions (O2-) and Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2). The device utilizes a multi-wavelength ultraviolet light to illuminate a target surface. The target surface is a honeycomb matrix treated with a proprietary photocatalytic coating. When inserted into the ducts of an HVAC system the device reacts with H2O molecules found in the humidity to continuously create predominately H2O2 molecules which exit the duct and disperse throughout the targeted area coating all surfaces with highly effective oxidizing molecules that work to reduce the bioburdens of clinically relevant pathogens 24/7.
Environmental bacterial contamination that can contribute to the spread of HAIs is a primary concern for all medical and healthcare facilities.
