Pharmaceutical Contamination & Cleanrooms
Pharmaceutical contamination can be a major problem for companies and despite advances in technology, pharmaceutical hygiene controls and procedures, unwanted microorganisms often enter these controlled environments (pharmaceutical cleanrooms) on the hands of staff – with a major source of the cross contamination being the door handles into the pharmaceutical cleanrooms. These touch points are used by thousands of staff each year so it’s no wonder that there is such a high probability of cross-contamination.
The Hygiene Handle is able to minimise pharmaceutical contamination by ensuring that each person that enters the pharmaceutical cleanroom has clean hands. It does this by applying sanitising hand gel to the users hand as they open the cleanroom door. The Hygiene Handle complements existing pharmaceutical hygiene procedures by ensuring that cross contamination at the point of entry is no longer an issue.
Pharmaceutical contamination represents a costly risk to brand reputation and the financial implications of contamination are equally as severe. For a minimal cost the Hygiene Handle provides an additional pharmaceutical cleanroom control measure, reducing the risk to your product and brand reputation.
The Hygiene Handle can be used on a number of doors, such as :
- Cleanroom doors (as a final barrier to prevent pathogens entering the clinical processing area)
- Gowning room doors (helps minimise contamination coming into your clean area)
- Toilet doors (helps minimise pathogens from exiting the bathroom)
- Micro lab doors (helps prevent pathogens from coming out of your lab and into you clean area)
- Main Facility / Building Entrance (helps reduce pathogens from even entering the building).
Marginal Gains from hand hygiene?
A top premiership club has recently installed Hygienic Door Handles into its training ground facility as part of a suite of measures to improve marginal gains.
