Indisputable evidence proving the efficacy of the Handle Hygiene door handle sanitising system in a public hospital.
The device has also undergone trials at a major HSE Hospital in Ireland, where in excess of 1,100 samples were taken over a sixteen-week period. The results, from an independent laboratory, were conclusive regarding its efficacy at destroying germs and preventing cross-contamination.
HOW WE TEST FOR GERMS
Hygicult swabs are pressed against the door handle and then placed in an incubator for 24 hours. If there is bacteria present they will form into visible colonies. The Handle Hygiene door handle sanitizing system was designed to help prevent and/or reduce the spread of germs from door handles. Door handles, especially toilet door handles, are a well documented source of harmful bacteria that cause the spread of serious infection. The system is a simple mechanical device (requires no batteries or power supply) that fits easily to existing doors and operates in conjunction with the opening and closing motions of the door – ensuring reliability and effectiveness every time the door is used – guaranteeing a safer and cleaner door handle.
