Warrendale, Pennsylvania, USA, - Siemens Water Technologies introduces Nosogard infection control filters that help prevent pathogens in water used in the healthcare industry. The 7, 14 or 30-day point-of-use sterile filters feature a unique design that combines a 1.0-micron pre-filter and a 0.2-micron microporous membrane to remove water-borne pathogenic organisms. The filters are individually integrity tested, performance-validated, and shipped in radiosterilized packaging with peel-able lids to maintain sterility.

The Nosogard filter helps prevent pathogens in water used in the healthcare industry. Waterborne pathogens have been linked to nosocomial infections such as legionella pneumophila, stenotrophomonas maltophilia and pseudomonas aeruginosa. These pathogens can be passed to patients through drinking water and ice, hand washing, showering, and medical equipment rinsed in tap water. Immuno-compromised patents, such as newborns, the elderly, burn victims and transplant patients are especially vulnerable.

Nosocomial infections are estimated to be responsible for up to 10 percent of patient infections, and even patient deaths, adding billions of dollars in excess healthcare costs. Says Nick Amstrong, Product Manager for Health Science Solutions at Siemens Water Technologies, "Siemens' Nosogard filters are an economical way of preventing waterborne infections, and therefore helping to ensure patient safety. The filters are one of the latest offerings in a line of water treatment products from Siemens Water Technologies to improve water quality and safety for customers worldwide."

The 7-day and 14-day Nosogard filters are validated to remove all organisms, and the 30-day Nosogard filters are validated to remove legionella only, for 30 days. A 60-day Nosogard infection control filter is also available. This filter requires autoclaving on a daily basis to provide 60-day sterilization. The Nosogard filters will be launched at the Fifth Decennial International Conference on Healthcare-Associated Infections, March 18-22 in Atlanta, Georgia.
