B+N Referencia Zrt., as a major sponsor of the event, presented several of its breakthrough technology innovations with the aim of revolutionizing hygiene in hospitals. They can drastically improve the safety of patients and healthcare professionals in the near future.
PREMIERE OF THE UVC DISINFECTION ROBOT
At the conference, Péter Zalka, Head of the R&D Department of the company presented the latest revolutionary innovation of the firm for the first time, i.e. the autonomous robot that uses unique optics and UV-C irradiation for disinfection. The equipment to be deployed in the near future applies UV-C irradiation to disinfect various surfaces. With the help of this device that can be used for any application in a hospital environment, the number of infections can be greatly reduced. It is important to point out that the equipment significantly improves the efficiency of disinfection through the reduction of the shadow effect, the optimization of exposure time and setting the right distance. The robot is able to identify surfaces that have not been properly disinfected. As a result, it can be perfectly integrated into the cleaning and disinfection routine of the institution.
B+N Referencia Zrt.’s innovation is a breakthrough in the fight against hospital-acquired infections.
A WORLD NOVELTY IN IDENTIFYING HOSPITAL PATHOGENS
Another revolutionary breakthrough innovation of B+N Referencia Zrt. can be used to reduce the number of hospital-acquired infections. B+N is the first in the world to introduce this metagenomic analysis and forecast system which is able to identify pathogens on various surfaces by sampling and analysing processes integrated into hospital cleaning procedures. It makes the quick detection of pathogen colonies possible, thus preventing a potential epidemic. The analysis of the data acquired this way enables professionals to change the cleaning and disinfection processes accordingly. This can be attained with the help of the aforementioned UV disinfection robot developed by B+N Referencia Zrt. or by changing the type or concentration of disinfectants.
“We want to ensure and we are convinced that this unique invention will radically change the risk of infections at hospitals and increase the safety of patients” – said Dr. Ágnes Ősz, Senior Research Fellow at B+N Referencia Zrt. in the summary of her lecture delivered at the event of the Hungarian Hospital Association.
TRANSPARENT AND ECONOMICAL TEXTILE SERVICES
A subsidiary of B+N Referencia Zrt., i.e. Referencia Mosodák Zrt. presented another unique solution at the congress. The RFID technology introduced by CEO Tamás Varga monitors and supports the entire cleaning process of hospital textiles. The identification elements integrated into the materials make the circulation of textiles transparent and promote a clear settlement of accounts between the hospital and the laundry. With its help, healthcare institutions can save a considerable amount of time and cost and obtain predictable, high quality services.
All the three technological innovations of B+N Referencia facilitate safer hospital services and thus the recovery of patients.
