Adept Water Technologies manufacturer high-end equipment for infection control.
The systems are produced in compliance with ISO13485 quality management.
BacTerminator® Dental has obtained »Environmental Technology Verification« (ETV); ETV is a certification scheme of the EU Commission which tests and validates the efficacy of green technologies.
The production of 1 l water with BacTerminator® Health Care costs € 0,15 – 0,30.
The patented BacTerminator® technology combines filtering and electrolysis, which produces active chlorine (hypochlorous acid).
Result of the BacTerminator treatment is clean and super disinfected water with a residual disinfection effect that protects against biofilm and regrowth.
Bacteria may grow in an ice cube maker even without a lot of bacteria in the incoming water.
An on-site test with BacTerminator® Health Care shows that the ice cube and drinking water function of the machine can drastically reduce the bacteria count.
The water system in dental units is notorious for biofilm and Legionella problems. BacTerminator® Dental reduces and controls biofilm and is very effective in combating Legionella. Many on-site tests as well as the ETV report show that BacTerminator® Dental is able to ensure good water hygiene in the water system of dental units.
The microbiological quality of tap water may vary significantly and tap water may contain potentially pathogenic bacteria. A small BacTerminator tapping station will provide a constant satisfactory water quality which can be checked with a fast and simple strip test. The water may be tapped into bottles for wound cleansing and is a cheap alternative to sterile saline. It also saves space as it does not require storage of bottles/bags of saline.
