Surgical site infections account for 14% to 17% of all hospital-acquired infections and 38% of nosocomial infections in surgical patients. Surgical site infections remain a substantial cause of morbidity and death, specifically due to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms.
When one of the nation-leading hospital came to us looking for a solution to decrease surgical site infections, the answer was clear to us.
The solution was a triple layer of antimicrobial containment. The Bio-Grid Ceiling System's Antimicrobial Powder Coating and fungal-resistant gasket aids in the reduction and development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in operating rooms, patient rooms, procedure rooms, clean rooms, and surgical centers.
The Antimicrobial Powder Coating combined with the other components of the Bio-Grid produces the ultimate cleanroom ceiling system.
Three Layers of Protection
- Antimicrobial polyester powder coated grid.
- 3M closed cell anti-fungal seal.
- Antimicrobial polyester powder coated tiles.
These protective layers offer health systems an opportunity to provide patients with an infectious-free environment.
The Bio-Grid Ceiling underwent a Bio-Grid Powder Supplier Test (performed at Biosan Labs).
Over a 24 hour period, the number of bacteria were closely studied and compared to control samples.
The outcome was definite:
The Bio-Grid was the solution for the crucial need of reducing bacteria in cleanrooms.
99.99% reduction in Escherichia coli ATCC #8739
99.99% reduction in Staphylococcus aureus ATCC #6538
99.99% reduction in Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC #15442
