To be in complete compliance with HACCP, Socamel Technologies has included an innovating solution on its new Compactserv and Roomserv trolleys to easily disinfect both the inside and outside of the trolley in a very short time.
This innovation was the innovation prize winner in the January 2011 SIRHA in the collectivity equipment category.
Standard disinfection is the result of the partnership between Socamel Technologies and SANIVAP, the leader in steam disinfection for hospitals in France.
What is disinfection?
Disinfection is the controlled elimination of germs designed to prevent the transmission of certain undesirable microorganisms by altering their structure or their metabolism.
The result of the disinfection operation is limited to the micro-organisms present during the operation; disinfection does not prevent later recontaminations, this is why is should be carried out regularly
After the evening service and the trolley pre-wash, all the operator has to do is connect the SANIVAP 5500 H²0². A connector is built into the underside of the appliance.
Once connected, the steam generation is triggered by pressing the 2 buttons on the pistol to spread the steam and H²0² mixture.
To test the disinfection solution and carry out validation tests we have decided to call on the laboratory which is the reference in matters of hospital hygiene: the Biotech-Germande laboratory in Marseille. The purpose of these tests was to determine the biocide activities of the disinfection method using steam and hydrogen peroxide on a suspension of micro organisms deposited on a glass test medium.
The tests were carried out using a method inspired by the NF EN 14561 standards: 2007, NF EN 14562:2006 and EN 14563:2004 demonstrated that the disinfection method by steam combined with H²0² leads to a reduction in the number of viable cells of >6.0 log for bacteria.
Under the described experimental conditions, the results of the completed tests demonstrate that the SANIVAP steam disinfection procedure has a satisfactory biocide action on bacteria.
