Unique Gas Plasma Disinfector
A Better Way to Destroy Pathogens
Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are the infections a patient can contract while being treated in a healthcare facility. HAIs present a significant threat to patient safety and cause approximately 100,000 deaths (14% of all hospital deaths) annually in the U.S.
Impact of HAI
The cost of treating HAIs is staggering — estimated at over $30 billion each year. Hospital cost is reported at over $15,000 per affected patient. Beyond the financial cost, the terrible impact on patients and communities cannot be measured. Infections complicate treatment, prolong hospital stays, cause higher re-admission rates, result in additional surgery, and cause pain, suffering and death.
Current Prevention Methods Fail
HAI prevention often focuses only on the high-risk, invasive diagnostic and therapeutic tools. However, the risk from non-critical tools is frequently underestimated and therefore neglected.
Examples of these non-invasive portable clinical items (NPIs) include blood pressure cuffs, stethoscopes, pulse oximeters, ophthalmoscopes, otoscopes, ultrasound transducers, id badges, pens, and more. Additionally, dozens of electronic devices carry pathogens, such as cell phones, pagers, game systems, and TV remote controls.
GLOTRAN™ KILLS HAIs
Our unique cold plasma technology effectively destroys pathogens on surfaces that have been traditionally difficult to disinfect.
The GloTran™ surface cleaner and plasma disinfection system is an advanced, fast-acting technology that uses cold plasma (hydrogen peroxide and gas plasma) to destroy microbes, disinfecting hard-to-reach surfaces that may have intricate designs and complex shapes. It provides consistent, uniform disinfection of non-critical medical devices, heat-sensitive items and some electronics.
GloTran™ was designed to reduce the prevalence of HAIs (Hospital Acquired Infections) caused by Noninvasive Portable Clinical Items (NPIs) and non-critical equipment in outpatient clinics, hospitals, dental offices, long-term care facilities… anywhere healthcare is being practiced and pathogens such as MRSA present a danger.
