Cairn offers hospitals breath of fresh air at the Infection Prevention and Control Conference 2022

State-of-the-art air purification technology will be taking centre stage on the Cairn Technology stand at the Infection, Prevention and Control Conference 2022.

Using patent-pending filtration technology, the Blueair HealthProtect™ 7740i Air Purifier provides complete filtration of hospital rooms of up to 62 m² at the industry recommended rate of 4.8x an hour.

The purifier combines electrostatic and mechanical filtration to catch 99.97% of particles down to 0.1 microns, including viruses and bacteria. What’s more, its HEPASilent Ultra™ filtration technology delivers 50% more clean air (1), uses 55% less energy and has a 10% lower noise than traditional true HEPA filtration (2).

Even while left on standby, the 7740i proactively monitors your room and kills (3) viruses and bacteria, whilst the system’s omni-directional airflow circulates clean air to every corner of the room.

The purifier’s SmartFilter consists of one particle filter layer and one active carbon filter layer, which combine to remove gas, odours, smoke, VOCs, exhaust, smog, and chemicals from the air.

The SmartFilter’s performance is tracked through the Blueair App, which notifies staff when it is time to replace it. The app also allows staff to set speed control options, enable Auto and Night modes and change the On/Off timer.

An intuitive 5-colour indicator bar on 7740i purifier also gives quick updates on particle and gas levels, and a numerical display quantifies the levels for PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 particles.

In addition to the HealthProtect™ 7740i Air Purifier, Cairn Technology will be exhibiting its absorbent floor mats for operating theatres and scrub rooms. These include the innovative T-Mat which is the most absorbent floor mat on the market. Turning up to 8.5litres of fluid to gel within seconds, these non-drip mats avoid cross-infection, allowing for safe and easy disposal in clinical waste.

Also helping to control infection, Cairn Technology’s DryMax Sterile mats are useful for burns, endoscopy and arthroscopy departments that are looking for a mat that can safely be used next to the patient’s body.

In addition, information will be available on Cairn Technology’s Biohazard Spill Kits, Body Fluid Spill Kits and Sterile Services Cleanroom Testing.
