Sanitising Door Handles Help Keep Laboratories Pathogen Free

Sep 28 2017 Read 571 Times

Teknomek’s sanitising door handles offer a new level of support for hygiene routines in the pharmaceutical sector. The new products automatically release virucidal hand gel when pulled, helping prevent pathogens from being brought into laboratories and sterile environments.

Sue Springett, Commercial Manager at Teknomek, explained: “The greatest challenge to establishing the type of business-wide hygiene culture that will satisfy MHRA auditors can come down to one factor hygiene managers have little direct control over - staff’s personal hygiene. While signage in key areas such as changing rooms and wash rooms goes some way to addressing this, you cannot force people to wash their hands.

“By applying sanitising gel direct to a person’s hands through the simple act of opening a door, this system solves that problem once and for all. You cannot underestimate the value of boosting a company’s hygiene standards because the weakest point has been so comprehensively addressed.”

The sanitising gel used in the door handle eliminates MHRA, as well as other harmful viruses and bacteria including campylobacter and listeria. Independent swab testing found users’ hands were 87% cleaner after using the gel dispensing handles. It is non-perfumed and non-tainting and tested to EN1500, EN13727, 12054 and EN14476 (virucidal) for hand rubs.

Sue Springett concluded: “It’s sensible to place gel dispensing handles as a last line of defence at the entrance to clean rooms and other hygiene controlled areas.”
