The Need for Antimicrobial Breathing Equipment
It's no secret that nebulizers and other breathing devices are prone to microbial growth. Exposure to moisture and humidity often leads to the unwanted accumulation of bacteria and mould on the product surface, causing unpleasant odours, staining and premature product degradation. This greatly impacts the overall lifespan of the equipment and often leads to the need for costly replacements.
To address this issue, Microban® is partnered with OMRON to offer a range of antimicrobial nebulizers, aspirators and linked attachments.
Built-in to the plastic surface during the manufacturing process, Microban® technology works to disrupt the vital life processes and biological functions of any contaminating microbe. This means the cell cannot reproduce and subsequently dies. The result is a critical medical device that stays hygienically cleaner and fresher in-between cleaning. It is also more durable and less likely to break under recommended usage conditions.
Thanks to built-in Microban® technology, OMRON nebulizers and aspirators are:
- Effective against the growth of harmful bacteria by up to 99.9%
- More hygienic to use
- Proven to stay cleaner and fresher in-between cleaning
- Easier to keep clean
- Resistant to staining and bad odours caused by bacteria
- Less likely to prematurely degrade, crack or break
- Less likely to facilitate microbial cross-contamination in hygiene-critical environments
