The results of a long-term study show: the MoveoSiphon ST24 can effectively eradicate multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa from sink drains leading to a decrease in colonization of patients.

The findings of a study conducted at the Leiden University Medical Centre in the Netherlands (de Jonge et al., Journal of Hospital Infection, the MoveoSiphon ST24 can effectively eradicated multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa from sink drains. 

However, the study does not only substantiate the effectiveness of the MoveoSiphon but also show that the disinfection with the MoveoSiphon resulted in a marked decrease in colonization of patients with multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Since the study is the first using a concurrent control group it is highly unlikely that the decrease in prevalence of MDR-PA is caused by other measures.
