Whether the need is for functional overlays or more decorative product badging we can help ensure the equipment is safe to help protect patients during their stay.
(PRWEB) February 4, 2011
In January, the Health Protection Agency released the latest figures for infections caught within 151 primary care organisations. During the period November 2009 – November 2010, there were 1,808 meticillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) cases recorded and 25,600 cases of clostridium difficile infection (CDI).
On the 6th and 7th April, Diametric will be exhibiting at MEDTEC UK; a dedicated conference and exhibition focusing on medical device design and manufacturing in the UK. It will be showcasing its nameplates, labels and badges for the medical sector.
“The medical industry expects and requires very high standards because they need to ensure patient safety. We work with a number of global medical suppliers and understand exceptionally high standards and requirements of these organisations,” said Pete Knight, Director at Diametric. “One area we are keen to promote is our biomedical labels which contain Microban antimicrobial protection to help ward off infections such as MRSA and CDI. Whether the need is for functional overlays or more decorative product badging we can help ensure the equipment is safe to help protect patients during their stay.”
Microban is added to the polyester during the manufacturing process of the biomedical labels. It offers lifetime protection, working continuously to inhibit the growth of microbes, such as bacteria, mould and mildew that can cause stains, odours and deterioration of a product.
Diametric will be located on stand 1844 at MEDTEC UK.
