Medical Water Filtration

Even if the incoming water fulfills drinking water regulations, biofilms will form within a few days in the water distribution system. Chemical chemicals and heat disinfection treatments have little effect on the microorganisms inside. It is difficult to entirely remove once it has become entrenched. Many diseases, as well as protozoa (such as Acanthamoeba), fungus (such as Aspergillus, Fusarium), and other aquatic microbes, can be found in biofilms. Alfa Chemistry can creates and distributes specialized medical water filtration for our customers.

Water for Patient Care

Patients and workers in the hospital environment are exposed to water from a variety of sources, including drinking and preparing food, as well as personal hygiene and equipment cleaning. Patients may be more susceptible to water-borne medical-associated infection (HAI) infection as a result of this exposure, hence extra precautions should be taken in regions where immunocompromised patients may be exposed to water.

Water for Patient Care

Understanding the reservoirs and transmission channels of water-borne pathogens is critical for the development of healthcare-related infection prevention and control methods. The Centers for Disease Control has highlighted three major areas for patient safety risk management in relation to water quality, namely:

  • Water entering a healthcare facility meets all applicable quality standards.
  • Exposure to infection risks from water sources is minimized.
  • Healthcare premise plumbing, the building's hot and cold water distribution system, is designed and maintained in a way that minimizes growth and spread of waterborne pathogens in both supply and waste.

Alfa Chemistry's point of use (POU) water filter is a filtering device that meets international requirements. They've been shown to be effective against Legionella spp., Pseudomonas spp., non-tuberculous mycobacteria, and other opportunistic waterborne pathogens that might cause illnesses in patients.

Microbiologically Controlled Water

Legionella pneumophila is the most well-known water-borne biofilm colonizing bacteria, and it can be found in both central storage places (such as water tanks) and peripheral water outputs. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most common cause of serious infections such as pneumonia, sepsis, wound infections, and skin infections. Water filters with POUs are considered standard hospital equipment. They are commonly utilized in bone marrow transplant wards, organ transplant wards, tumor wards, neonatal care wards, and critical care hospitals as physical barriers to prevalent water-borne infections.

New Breathing System Filter

The Alfa Chemistry disposable water filter can be used for up to 31 days:

  • Bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and particulates can be eliminated from the water supply by acting as a physical barrier to common water-borne infections. When filtered water is used for this purpose, the water filter is given as a sterile, radiation-sterilized product to assure the best efficacy.
  • Showering and washing, personal hygiene operations (such as brushing teeth and gargling), drinking, and preparing cold drinks and food are all possible with filtered water.
  • Typically seen in bone marrow transplant wards, organ transplant wards, tumor wards, neonatal care wards, critical care units, and other medical settings.
  • During the production process, the integrity test is performed individually.
  • Contains a 0.2 m double-layer sterile filter membrane that has been rated and validated.

Our products and services are for research use only and cannot be used for any clinical purpose.
