The 7, 14 or 30-day point-of-use sterile filters from Siemens feature the combination of a 1.0 micron pre-filter and a 0.2 micron microporous membrane to remove water-borne pathogenic organisms lined to nosocomial infections. The Nosogard infection control filters are individually integrity tested, performance-validated and shipped in radiosterilized packaging with peel-able lids to maintain sterility.
The 7-day and 14-day Nosogard infection control filters are validated to remove all organisms and the 30-day Nosogard filters are validated to remove legionella only, for 30 days. A 60-day Nosogard infection control filter is also available, which requires autoclaving on a daily basis to provide 60-day sterilization.
Nick Amstrong, product manager for Health Science Solutions at Siemens Water Technologies, said: “Siemens’ Nosogard filters are an economical way of preventing waterborne infections, and therefore helping to ensure patient safety. The filters are one of the latest offerings in a line of water treatment products from Siemens Water Technologies to improve water quality and safety for customers worldwide.”
