The Baclyser® tap filters: TL with laminar outlet and TR with shower rose outlet are CE-marked medical devices. These are disposable, point-of-use, hollow fibre membrane water filters with a proven retention efficiency of 7 Log steps for Brevundimonas diminuta. This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtered water. Thus, all waterborne bacteria such as Pseudomonas and Legionella are blocked by these tap filters. The hygienic design and use of bacteriostatic material in the filter outlet prevents retrograde contamination. The filter is designed to deliver a consistent bacteriological performance at the design flow rate for the up to 3-months dependent on water quality. On expiry of the operating time, the used filter can be easily changed via the quick release coupling and then disposed of responsibly. The individual product labelling on each filter supports traceability and documentation processes within hospitals hygiene routines.
