Clean Card PRO for the USA
Clean Card PRO is intended for monitoring the effect of cleaning processes on surfaces where protein contamination is possible. Clean Card PRO enables you to ensure a high standard of hygiene.
Protein residues on surfaces indicate insufficient cleaning which may pose a threat to health, as the unclean surfaces may support the growth of pathogens. Each Clean Card PRO device contains a reagent pad which is impregnated with reagents. The Clean Card PRO device is wiped on a moistened surface, resulting in a visually readable colour change if proteins are present. When producing and handling food, hygiene must be monitored by surface sampling (e.g. Clean Card PRO).
Healthcare-associated infections which spread through hand-touch sites are a significant challenge in healthcare. To prevent infections from spreading, it is important to stop transmission from clinical environments. This can be achieved by focusing on surface hygiene and quality of cleaning.

About regular hygiene monitoring
Hospitals are busy environments where healthcare professionals, patients and visitors are in close contact with each other, making the risk of human-to-human contamination significant. Good hand hygiene and correct working methods are cornerstones of infection control and prevention. In addition, it is essential to eliminate the transmission of infections from surfaces by paying attention to surface hygiene and the quality of cleaning. Visual inspection of surfaces is not sufficient; objective hygiene assessments are required. By monitoring the cleanliness of surfaces, infections can be prevented from spreading and best aseptic practices can be objectively determined.
