Contamination control ‘under foot’


Contamination control within hospitals and pharmaceutical facilities is of great importance, either to protect patients from infection or protect products intended to be administered into patients from contamination. The primary contamination risk is from microorganisms – principally bacteria and fungi.

In relation to this area, Tim Sandle has written an article that assesses the types of contamination control systems for floors that are available to the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. This has been published in European Medical Hygiene.
