Do you need more information?

Surfaces are a major point of transmission for microorganisms, including those involved in healthcare associated infections (HAI). Some of these organisms are increasingly resistant to antimicrobials. That’s why your first line of defense is to prevent infection from spreading.  This will improve patient care, save costs and ensure you are well positioned when it comes to compliance and accreditation. bioMérieux brings you the innovative COUNT-TACT® range of products to ensure you’ve got your surface control needs covered.


Be confident controlling surfaces with COUNT-TACT®

The COUNT-TACT® range has been designed to ensure you achieve regular, standardized surface sampling with ease. Build your own package or use all for a comprehensive solution.
