A healthy clean environment starts at the micro level. Micro organisms do not germinate in the air, it need a receptive surface to grow. Source control is the key to reducing nosocomial infection in a hospital setting.
Aegis is an exceptional disinfectant which, in a single application provides the treated surfaces with anti viral and antimicrobial properties. The treated surface becomes inhibitory for the development of microbial reservoirs. The destruction of the micro organisms, airborne or otherwise, on contact with treated surface reduces the risks of cross contamination and the spread of pathogens.
Unique Qualities of AEGIS Microbe Shield
Safe to humans and the environment.
The AEGIS Microbe Shield is environmentally friendly and user friendly antimicrobial. No heavy metals means no worries. The AEGIS Microbe Shield addresses the two main ecological concerns associated with leaching antimicrobials: bleeding harmful toxins into the environment and the generation of adaptive organisms (super bugs). The mode of action of the AEGIS Microbe Shield is physical and its molecular makeup alleviates these concerns.
Provides Long Term Protection
The AEGIS Microbe Shield chemistry offers a multifold benefit, where not only the war against microbes is addressed, but coupled with a treatment of a bonded non leaching antimicrobial which will give long term protection by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic micro organisms in hospital environment even after repeated cleaning. Because it does not dissipate, it retains its full antimicrobial strength for the life of the surface to which it is applied.
AEGIS works 24 hours a Day, 7 days a Week, 365 days a Year
The AEGIS treatment starts the Microbicidal action as soon as the micro organisms land on the surface and prevent the growth. Regular cleaning procedures are paramount in all hygiene sensitive environments; however what happens to the bio loading on surfaces in between cleans? The ÆGIS Program is your best defense on guard 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days. AEGIS value adds in supplementing your existing efforts in infection control and providing your second line of defense.
The need to use higher dose or stronger chemicals are reduced as the microbial pollutants are kept in under control. Aegis Microbe Shield is the clear solution to microbial control.
Life Cycle Cost Savings
The unparalleled durability of out treated surface helps extend the maintenance cycle and minimize all related material, labour and shut down costs.
How AEGIS Works?
Technology that Inhibits Microbial Growth
The active ingredient in ÆGIS Microbe Shield forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer that chemically bonds to the treated surface. You could think of it as a layer of electrically charged swords. When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine “sword” punctures the cell membrane and the electrical charge “shocks” the cell. Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial doesn’t lose strength and the “sword” is ready for the next cell to contact it.
