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 mold on the product surface, causing unpleasant odors, 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, OMRON is partnered with Microban International 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 contaminating microbes. This means they cannot grow and reproduce on the treated surface and subsequently die. 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.
