We make disinfecting better, easier and more cost effective.
Studies have shown that less than 50% of environmental surfaces in patient care rooms are properly cleaned and disinfected. Evidence strongly suggests that cross contamination of microorganisms from environmental surfaces is directly related to patient infections. High-touch surfaces such as bed rails, bed surfaces, tables, fluid poles, door knobs, and supply carts have all been identified as having the greatest potential for transmission of pathogens.
Current cleaning/disinfecting methods and procedures are critical, yet, 100,000 people will die this year directly attributable to HAIs. Housekeeping is allocated insufficient time for cleaning/disinfecting resulting in inadequate chemical disinfection contact time as specified on disinfectant product labels. E-Mist helps healthcare organizations prevent and reduce HAIs.
Founded on a legacy of electrostatic science and technology, the E-Mist Infection Control System eliminates traditional disinfectant methods by providing a mobile, touchless, safer, and more cost-effective approach to environmental surface disinfection. E-Mist helps hospitals and other healthcare institutions break the chain of pathogen mobility.
The slow, labor-intensive process of wiping surfaces with disinfectant is a thing of the past. Now, with the E-Mist electrostatic application system, one person can disinfect large-scale surface areas quickly. How fast? An entire room in minutes and 54,000 square feet in an hour.
Electrostatics has been around and used for decades in the automotive, agriculture, inkjet and photocopier industries. Electrostatics is easily understood: opposite charges attract and like charges repel. Two positively charged things ( + and + ) will repel each other. Two negatively charged things ( – and – ) will repel each other. Using this natural electrostatic phenomena, E-Mist developed and patented a breakthrough disinfectant application technology and system. The E-Mist Electrostatic Systems place a positive ( + ) charge on the liquid droplets as they leave the spray nozzle. The dispersed droplets spread out more evenly and seek out a negative ( – ) or neutrally charged surface. The end result is that the disinfectant is more targeted, provides more uniform coverage with less waste, and like a magnet, attracted to a surface with remarkable force.
With fewer man-hours required to disinfect your facilities, you can reduce labor costs up to 45%. What’s more, the precision delivery system of the EM360 requires far less disinfectant to do the job, so you’ll save on chemical costs as well.
Those involved in the prevention and control of preventable infections require a balanced approach of cost and quality to improve outcomes. Existing healthcare disinfection methods including wipes, spray and wipe, fogging, and UV lighting are ineffective or expensive. As environmental surface contamination and healthcare-acquired infections have become more defined, the E-Mist electrostatic disinfectant application system presents an effective, approved, and cost effective alternative to facility disinfection procedures.
