Baclyser® TL (3M) and TR (3M)
Prevention through water hygiene
Water supply systems are a major source of nosocomial in- fections. Point-of-use membrane filters – installed directly at the water outlet – are an established method of protecting patients against waterborne bacteria. In medical facilities, point-of-use bacterial filters are used either reactively, as an immediate solution in the event of contamination with pathogens such as Legionella or pseudomonas or proactively, to deliver consistent protection to high risk patients from the ever present risk of infection.
Baclyser® TL (3M) and TR (3M)
The Baclyser® tap filters: TL with laminar outlet and TR with shower rose outlet are -marked medical devices. These are disposable, point-of-use, hollow fibre membrane water filters with a proven retention efficiency of 7 Log steps for Brevundimonas diminuta. This complies with the FDA definiti- on of sterile filtered water. Thus, all waterborne bacteria such as pseudomonas and legionella are blocked by these tap filters. The hygienic design and use of bacteriostatic material in
Health Technical Memorandum (HTM04-01) highlights the use of point-of-use filters as an acceptable control measure in healthcare environments. Part B: Operational Management indicates that, in high risk areas such as haematology, oncology, neurosurgery, transplant units or accommodation for older people, point-of-use filters should be considered in the event of any positive Legionella or Pseudomonas sample results.
the filter outlet prevents retrograde contamination. The filter is designed to deliver a consistent bacteriological performance at the design flow rate for the up to 1-month dependent on water quality. On expiry of the operating time, the used filter can be easily changed via the quick release coupling and then disposed of responsibly. The individual barcode on each filter supports traceability and documentation processes within hospitals hygiene routines.
