Resistance to antibiotics is an issue the WHO is dealing with since several years. Due to bacterial resistance, especially multi-resistance, a growing number of infections are becoming harder to treat as the antibiotics used to treat them become less effective.

This leads to longer hospital stays, higher medical costs and increased mortality. Bacteria have an exceptional genetic flexibiliy and can respond rapidly to environmental changes. By horizontal gene transfer, the antibiotic resistance can be transferred to other bacteria. Resistances develop where many bacteria live close to each other,  especially within the protected area of biofilms!

The dual approach of the MoveoSiphon ST24 – thermal disinfection of the trap liquid and vibration cleaning of the trap – prevents the development of biofilm and thus the transfer and spread of bacteria and genes that carry resistance information.

See for yourself how the MoveoSiphon ST24 works and visit us at MEDICA trade fair (Hall 11 G68), taking place from 15-18 November 2021 in Düsseldorf.
