Disinfectants are used in medical facilities such as hospitals, outpatient departments, care facilities, or also in food production and in canteens. Disinfectants contain ingredients that not only combat microorganisms, but can also attack surfaces.
High-quality materials are used for the UNIFY DECT Handsets to protect them in daily use. The UNIFY DECT Handsets are additionally protected by a surface coating against the effects of a number of commercially available disinfectants.
To test the effectiveness of the surface coating, a number of agents were tested during the product development with the surfaces of the UNIFY DECT Handsets. These tests range from several types of artificial hand perspiration (alkaline, basic) to olive oil or cream. Because to the special use of the OpenStage M3 models, they are also tested with drilling emulsion, for example.
The following agents have been tested to obtain a representative selection:
- AHD 2000 - Dr. Hans Rosemann
- Sterillium classic - Bode
- Epicare disinfectant - Ecolab
- Desdermann pure - Schülke
- Spitacid - Ecolab
Skin care products
- CIMO Sept - Dr. Fast
- Samolind - Dr. Fast
- Samtasan - Dr. Fast
- Incidin Rapid - Ecolab
Note: The UNIFY DECT Handsets must still not be dipped or these agents should be sprayed directly onto the handsets - it is recommended to apply these agents with a cloth and wipe them off so that the agents do not penetrate into the devices, otherwise there is a risk of a short circuit. These agents should be removed completely to avoid deposits.
