LESS TIME Three emitters operating during the same disinfection cycle deliver more energy and disinfect the room faster than single-emitter systems. VALIDATION Surfacide systems are smart systems that “see” every surface, ensuring disinfecting energy was delivered to all surfaces. SAFETY Every system detects anyone entering the room and shuts off the towers instantly, ensuring patient, visitor and employee safety. COST ADVANTAGE Surfacide contains three towers at a similar price of one single-emitter system on the market today.

Nojerm’s vision is a Healthcare Environment that does not transmit infection to its patients, staff or visitors. Two important aspects of Infection Prevention are Hand Hygiene and Surface Hygiene. But if clean hands touch dirty surfaces, all the good work can be undone in a moment.

 

So many surfaces in Hospitals are difficult or impossible to clean properly and clinically, because of their design. Killer Pathogens can settle undisturbed for months. Nojerm is designing items with smooth surfaces that can be sanitised totally, and are not receptive to pathogens. Our first product is Privacy Screens; others will follow.
