After a year of uncertainty, we are delighted to be attending 2021’s Infection Prevention Society (IPS) Conference. Over the past year, we have been very busy thinking of new, innovative ideas to help stop the spread of infection!
While we don’t want to give away everything, we’d like to tease a few things we’ve been developing. For more information or demonstrations, come and see us at stand 63 from the 27th-29th September at the ACC, Liverpool!
Since 2006 we have been ardent supporters of the IPS Conference, and this year we are thrilled to be platinum sponsors of IP2021 once again. For GAMA’s sponsored session at 09:10am - 09:45am on Tuesday 28th September (Hall 1B), we have invited Dr David Weber, an intellectual powerhouse in the infection prevention field, to discuss Strategies to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Transmission to Healthcare Personnel.
Alongside our sponsored talk, we’re excited to be unveiling some of our latest infection prevention solutions and recapping some favourites at our exhibition stall, ranging from new disinfectant wipes, air purification systems and our instant isolation unit!
So, what can we share with you now?
Dry surface biofilms are a community of microorganisms which allow survival of microorganisms on surfaces for prolonged periods of time. While traditional disinfectants kill free-floating (planktonic) bacteria and viruses, dry surface biofilms can survive cleaning and disinfection and cause persistent outbreaks. Our solution to these biofilms is Clinell Peracetic Acid Wipes. Our patented formulation can disrupt the biofilm matrix and eliminate 99.9999% of microorganisms, making it perfect for high-risk and hard-to-kill organisms.
There’s a worldwide shortage of patient isolation facilities in healthcare. When these rooms are filled, we're forced to cohort patients in open care areas or send them away to be isolated away from their home ward. Rediroom is the world's first mobile isolation room. It can be deployed around an existing bed space by a single person in under 5 minutes to help break the chain of infection. Rediroom's hand-free entry, in-built PPE station and HEPA air filtration allow it to offer effective isolation for droplet and contact precautions. Throughout IP2021, we will be giving live demonstrations on Rediroom, where you will be able to see how quick and easy Rediroom is to set up!
Microorganisms such as Influenza and Coronaviruses can be found in the droplets and aerosols we expel when we talk, cough, and even breathe. In poorly ventilated spaces or around vulnerable people, these droplets can cause infections. Rediair is a portable air purification device that uses HEPA 14 & activated carbon filters to trap up to 99.995% of particles down to 0.3 nanometres. With a sleek design available in 4 different sizes, Rediair simply plugs into the wall and begins trapping aerosols. When used around patients, Rediair’s highly efficient filters remove particles without sounding like a hurricane! With built-in day and night modes, Rediair gives even the lightest sleepers a chance to rest and recover.
After such a long time apart, our team of experts are eager to see you once again. We want to give everyone the opportunity to talk to us about products you might already use or answer any questions about some of our new products seen at IP2021. It wouldn’t be GAMA if we didn’t talk about the extensive training resources and educational materials we provide, so make sure you ask our experts about these when you drop by!
That’s all for now, but we can’t wait to talk about these new products at IP2021 with old friends and new faces, both in-person and virtually. If you’d like to keep up to date with everything happening at IP2021, be sure to follow us on Twitter, or for more information about the various sessions held, visit the official IPS website.
