Infection control on the agenda for Sirane in the autumn
INFECTION control will be the autumn focus for Sirane Medical & Healthcare as we head to two regional UK conferences where we will be exhibiting our product range.
Sirane will have a stand at Infection Today 2015 in Birmingham on Wednesday, October 7th, and then the following week at the North Wales Infection Prevention Autumn Conference 2015 at the Venue Cymru in Llandudno on Thursday, October 15th.
Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Sirane’s expertise in areas such as absorbency and material science means that we have some very exciting and innovative products to offer to the medical and healthcare market, with a real focus on our infection control products.
“One such product is our Sira-Care DiffX – a new disinfection system which both cleans and disinfects at the same time. The product offers great infection control outcomes.
“Sira-Care DiffX eliminates all surface contamination 100% and has the potential to not only revolutionise global infection control but also contribute significant financial savings. It is already used by an ever-growing number of NHS hospitals in the UK.”
Data from trusts who have used the product has demonstrated significant cost savings.
“When used as part of a cleaning regime it both cleans and disinfects at the same time, so there is a clear time saving,” said Simon Balderson, “but it can also save money by keeping wards clean, disinfected and infection free, reducing lost bed days, the cost of decontamination, cost of antibiotics and treatments, staff sickness and agency staff.
“As it is non-corrosive it also maximises equipment use – again, leading to financial savings.”
An exciting addition to Sirane’s already popular Sira-Care range, the company is already working on providing the product in new formats to complement the existing range – the first of which we intend to be a pack of Sira-Care DiffX handy wipes.
Sira-Care DiffX truly represents a new generation of infection control. It is non-chlorine-based, non-corrosive, cleans and disinfects at the same time, and eliminates all surface contamination – including MRSA and viruses, C Diff spores, Norovirus, TB and Mycrobacteria.
However, it is not the only product we offer that can contribute to infection control.
BenchGuard® Advanced offers the ultimate bench protection for laboratories, hospitals, surgeries and other clinical environments where high absorbency and sterile surface protection is required. It has a highly absorbent surface and an effective liquid barrier layer to ensure that spillages are contained and protect the work top.
Jonathan Mason, Sirane’s business development manager, said: “BenchGuard® Advanced is an absorbent, impermeable faced cellulosic fabric suitable for protection of laboratory benches and similar surfaces from spillage. It should prove very popular.”
BenchGuard® Advanced is strong and tear resistant even when wet and its flat smooth surface can be written on with pencil or ink. Used BenchGuard® Advanced can be readily disposed of after use and its clean composition means that it is suitable for incineration.
BenchGuard® Advanced is available in pre-cut sheets of various sizes and also in reel/roll format. It is also available with adhesive strips, preventing movement on the work bench.
Sirane Medical & Healthcare also offers nylon sterilisation bags & pouches, disposable non-slip absorbent theatre mats, absorbent tourniquet drapes, dental saliva absorbers and extraction packs, 95 kPa specimen transport bags and absorbent pads.
Sirane’s medical and healthcare products will also be exhibited across the Atlantic for the first time later this month as we head to the popular Pharma Expo in Las Vegas.
Pharma Expo is co-hosted at Pack Expo, one of North America’s largest trade shows. Pack Expo is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 28-30. Pharma Expo would be a sizeable show in its own right – 2014 saw 262 exhibitors over 60,000 sq ft.
Sirane is a highly innovative product development-to-manufacture company based in Telford, Shropshire. It has four divisions: food packaging; medical and healthcare; industrial and horticultural. The company can supply anywhere across the world.
