Preventing bacterial nosocominal infectious diseases caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Legionella pneumophila, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia or Staphylococcus aureus among immunosuppressed and immunocompromised patients.
- Safe protection against waterborne bacteria
- Available in 3 service lifes: up to 1 month, 2 months or 3 months
- Hygienic design to avoid retrograde contamination
- Maximum retrograde protection thanks to antibacterial MetalSkin® coating
The Baclyser® S point-of-use water filter is a a hollow-fibre shower filter. This disposable water filter is a sterile filter with a 0.2 μm hollow-fibre membrane which displays retention of at least 7 log units1, thereby offering reliable protection of patients from infections by all critical water-borne germs such as legionella, pseudomonas, staphylococci or stenotrophomonas. The protection lasts over a service life of up to 4, 8 or 12 weeks, depending on the requested service life and the respective water quality.
The hygienic design and the use of bacteriostatic material in the housing and bactericidal material at the filter outlet prevent retrograde contamination incurred by splash water or physical contact.
On expiry of the service life, the respective filter must be changed and disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner via material recycling. This filter change is easy to complete thanks to installation of the appropriate adapter arms.
An individual product marking on each filter guarantees traceability and facilitates the documentation process within the framework of hospital hygiene procedures.
