WATER TRAP DISINFECTOR (PATENT PENDING)

Washbasin water traps are some of the most contaminated areas in hospitals. For that reason, transmittance of multi-resistant bacteria from this area is increasingly recognized as a threat to patient health and safety.

The easily-installed Water Trap Disinfector uses UV-C light radiation to destroy the DNA/RNA of pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, virtually eliminating them from the inner surfaces of the trap.

Experiments done by the Department of Clinical Microbiology at Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet in Denmark demonstrated an effective and significant reduction of bacterial contamination in the washbasin water traps. More information on this study can be found here...
