INFECTION CONTROL & SAFETY
In today's environment, patients and staff need higher levels of protection from infectious viruses and diseases, for example, the current COVID-19 has infected numerous frontline staff and patients globally.
The Safe-Decon System tackles infection control using the following technologies:
The system has airtight seals which means that once the infected waste is in the unit, it can be safely moved out of quarantined/infected spaces. The antimicrobial coating also allows for safer handling.
The patented steam filters allow penetration of heat and steam from the autoclaves directly onto the infected waste in the unit. This ensures that true decontamination has occurred and the waste can now be handled as non-infectious.
The system has the ability to allow the insertion of a load probe. This enables staff to check the actual temperatures reached inside the vessel. This step provides real measurable evidence to guarantee the destruction of pathogens within the unit.
The Safe-Decon System is a durable solid unit which can be reused for at least 3 years. Unlike other temporary cardboard bins and bags, the system is simply wiped down ready to be used again. This generates significant cost savings over the longer term and negates the need for expensive and manual waste removal services.
The integration of the Safe-Decon System load probe and the engineered steam filters reduces autoclave times therefore, allowing more decontamination cycles to be run each day. Again, saving energy, time and costs.
By reducing waste disposal services involving transport and the incineration of bio-hazardous waste, the Safe-Decon System offers a much cleaner and environmentally friendly solution.
