In many areas of the manufacturing industry (e.g. pharmaceuticals, medical devices, etc.), as well as in healthcare facilities, very expensive equipment is used with a variety of different materials (such as plastics, metals, textiles and coated surfaces). To meet hygienic requirements, they must be cleaned and disinfected frequently. In addition to the general criteria of material compatibility, however, investigations must also be carried out into the basic microbial load, cleaning effect and residue analysis.
Our experts support you with a wide range of services in the field of “Cleaning & Disinfection”. Especially in health care facilities – from hospitals to outpatient clinics to nursing homes – cleaning and disinfection of surfaces must be checked with regard to interactions, resistance and effectiveness.
At OFI, we conduct tests for material compatibility with disinfectants and test the anti-microbial efficacy of surfaces and products. We offer contract research, research within the framework of funded national and international projects as well as routine analysis. To this end, we advise on the selection and use of approved biocides and assist you with the approval of your anti-microbial products. Our expertise ensures safety and health protection for patients and users.
