Medical shower filter’s proven efficacy
A new 31-Day Medical Shower Filter from Danish water filtration manufacturer, T-safe, has a compact, ergonomic, and lightweight design.
The latest addition to the company’s Medical Water Filter range incorporates the same T-safe technology ‘trusted to deliver safe water in over 350 hospitals in the UK and Ireland’. The ‘all-new’ 31 Day Medical Shower Filter is a disposable high-performance filter for shorter term use in high-risk healthcare environments.
T-safe MD, Stephen McCreanor, said: “As the pioneer of the first validated 92-day point-of- use filter solution for healthcare, we recognise that in some instances, a shorter lifecycle filter may be preferred. This may depend on the microorganism of concern, the extent of the contamination, and the patient risk profile, and thus a site-specific risk assessment should always be used to determine the most appropriate filter lifecycle to be deployed to ensure optimised patient safety, value for money, and optimal resource use.”
As sterilising grade membrane filters, T-safe Medical Water Filters reportedly provide ‘total retention of waterborne bacteria, offering the highest level of protection for immunocompromised patients at risk of nosocomial waterborne pathogen infection’. The microbial retention efficacy of the new 31 Day Medical Shower Filter has been proven via independent testing in accordance with ASTM F838, and through ‘exhaustive lifecycle studies involving controlled microbiological challenge testing’.
