Infection control is a crucial part of healthcare service delivery. Patients undergoing surgery need to be protected from infection during and after procedures. Surgical instruments are required to be cleaned and sterilised for re-use. The hospital environment needs to be kept at good levels of hygiene to prevent hospital acquired infections (‘HAIs’). The infection control market includes products from low temperature sterilisers (for sterilising more delicate surgical instruments such as endoscopes) to disinfectant solutions to surgical drapes and gowns (that provide barriers to infection).
