TOUL focused laminar flow is a system that removes 99.9% of bacteria and micro-organisms, including Covid-19.
In the last 20 years, the chance of success of organ transplants has significantly increased; however, infections are still a frequent and critical complication that can jeopardize the patients’ health and cause the transplant to fail, by contributing to organ rejection.
The major post-op infection risks are caused by the patient’s weakened immune system and the long surgery duration, with consequent increase of the bacterial count in the operating room and on the surgical instruments. A high bacterial count can be found on the surgical instruments used during surgery as early as 60 minutes after its start1.
TOUL focused laminar flow creates a sterile air flow directed toward the instruments table and/or operating field, which removes 99.9% of airborne bacteria and micro-organisms, including Coronavirus. The operating field and surgical instruments left open and exposed for very long times, are kept sterile without any time restraints, regardless from the number of people present in the operating theatre.
A necessary upgrade, since, according to Standard UNI 11425 2011, ISO Class 5 cleanrooms are mandatory for specialized surgeries, such as: organ transplants, implants, neurosurgery and oncologic surgeries, and other complex surgeries lasting longer than 60 minutes.
TOUL IS also compliant with the strict Standard ISO 5, which ensures that the instruments and operating field are kept sterile even during very long surgeries, without any time restraints.
The cost of TOUL laminar flow is broadly offset even after a single prevented infection.
