Do you need more information?

Regular control of water in healthcare facilities is necessary to limit the risks posed by water-borne organisms, which can cause severe, even life-threatening infections, particularly in debilitated or immunocompromized populations. This protects patients, saves costs, and ensures your success in compliance and accreditation. There are several critical areas where water can pose a danger, such as sinks, showers, therapy pools, air-conditioning systems, and more. And water isn’t just what comes out of the tap. bioMérieux provides a number of solutions to help you meet your water-monitoring challenges. In addition to microbiological controls for environmental water, we also offer specialized products for controlling hemodialysis water, endoscopes (to ensure proper disinfection) and for legionella detection.

    • High performance kit confirms almost 90% of Legionella strains present in environmental waters (L. pneumophila SG1, SG2-15, L. anisa)


Beyond water

In healthcare institutions, environmental monitoring and control includes more than water: your air and surfaces also need to be monitored to ensure a safer environment for patients; control costs, particularly due to healthcare associated infections; and meet regulatory requirements with confidence.
