Sterinis constitutes an ultra-high-performance disinfection technology suitable for all surfaces, including those which are inaccessible or hidden
In the space of a year, Gloster Sante Europe, a French specialist in medical and disinfection technology, has doubled the size of its international distribution network, and the company is currently seeking new distributors in Europe (Germany and Switzerland).
Gloster's Sterinis disinfection process is being marketed across 17 countries and the ground is being laid to start selling the technology in another 14 countries.
Sterinis, which complies fully with the Biocide Directive CE 98/8, is used by renowned hospitals, clinics' laboratories and agribusiness units for both prevention and treatment purposes.
The success enjoyed bY Gloster Sante Europe stems from Sterinis having won international scientific recognition, combined with the company's coherent marketing policy as well as perfect co-operation between Gloster and its distributors, says the company.
Gloster already has distributors in the UK, in the Republic of Ireland, in the Netherlands, and across Scandinavia, among others.
Sterinis constitutes an ultra-high-performance disinfection technology suitable for all surfaces, including those which are inaccessible or hidden.
The Sterinis process is manufactured by Canon, which has an industrial partnership agreement with Gloster Sante Europe.
The experience Canon has, together with the fact it is a worldwide organisation, guarantees the products' very high quality while making it possible to optimise the logistics.
Combining a unique and patented dry-fog diffusion technology with an ultra-high performance hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-based disinfectant, the innovative process known as Sterinis meets all the requirements of the Biocide Directive CE 98/8.
Sterinis is neither corrosive nor toxic, and is 99.99% biodegradable.
It guarantees the destruction, on a massive scale, of pathogenic micro-organisms by disinfecting all surfaces, even those that are concealed or inaccessible.
Sterinis thus makes it possible, generally speaking, to guard against the appearance of contaminations and infections, especially nosocomial (ie hospital-acquired) infections.
It unites effectiveness with safety, while generating considerable cuts in disinfection costs.
Sterinis integrates a unique traceability system, which enables all disinfecting operations to be recorded and a log to be edited via the unit's USB port.
Its design is simple and functional, so that it guarantees ease of use, thanks also to its perfectly adapted automatic monitoring and operating systems.
The disinfection operations carried out by Sterinis require no human presence during the disinfection process (contact time) and limit the length of time during which the rooms undergoing treatment are immobilised.
The Sterinis process has already and very widely made its mark as an indispensable tool in global hygiene protocols.
Indeed, Gloster's disinfection process has been adopted by a very large number of decision-makers in the fields of hospital care, pharmaceuticals and agribusiness, says the company.
The results of the tests carried out under both laboratory conditions and actual hospital usage conditions (operating theatre suites, recovery rooms, infectious diseases rooms, dental surgeries, etc) in France and in other countries (including Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Taiwan and Turkey) speak for themselves, and attest to the fact that Sterinis is one of the highest performing disinfection processes on the market, it says.
Sterinis complies with the NF harmonised standards as well as the relevant CE directives, including the AFNOR standard NF T 72-281 and the Biocide Directive CE 98/8.
Besides, Gloster Sante Europe has ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 13485:2003 certification (SGS Yarsley, Ukas-accredited body).
Gloster Sante Europe is based in the high-technology enterprise zone known as Technopole Toulouse, in the city of Toulouse (in south-western France).
Gloster is a specialist in medical and disinfection technology, with applications in hospital and dental care, in the management of doctors' surgeries and medical facilities (including laboratories and R and D units), in the running of retirement homes and any other premises where hygiene is a prime concern, which makes the technology equally relevant in veterinary science and the treatment of animals, agribusiness and the production of cosmetics.
Sterinis is a patented technology.
