Bonafide Partners With EMist
Bonafide Medical Group announced that it has partnered with EMist to provide the EPIX360, a new handheld disinfectant sprayer, as part of its Bac-Track solution.
The EPIX360 is an electrostatic disinfectant sprayer. This patented system can cover 4,000 square feed with just eight ounces of chemical. The system applies a bipolar charge to the chemical so that the oppositely charged target surface pulls the droplets like a set of magnets. As a result, electrostatic spraying of disinfectant provides the best technique not only for even, uniform coating of surfaces and hard-to-reach areas, but also provides a uniform coating and eliminates wasteful and expensive over-spraying.
Bac-Track helps health care facilities reduce the risk of infection due to cross-contamination. Following guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Bac-Track uses the measurement of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) levels to quickly identify the surface areas that are a higher risk for cross-contamination and health care acquired infections. Bac-Track complies with CDC guidelines to objectively evaluate surface contamination.
“It’s what you can’t see that can lead to disease spread. Bac-Track helps you see the world through a different lens,” said Scott McDaniel, chief commercial officer for Bonafide.
Bac-Track offers comparative data analysis, validation and assessment of current environment cleaning strategies, a proactive approach to combating disease spread, and cloud-based real-time monitoring for multiple users/platforms. The addition of EMist’s EPIX360 to the Bac-Track solution makes it even easier for healthcare facilities of all sizes to address the risk of health care acquired infections.
“With the EPIX360 electrostatic sprayer, health care facilities can apply an even, uniform and wraparound layer of chemical in just minutes,” said George Robertson, CEO of EMist. “This greatly reduces the existence and transmission of dangerous pathogenic microorganisms from high-touch point surfaces, substantially improving patient and staff health. Additionally, the EPIX360 maintains a breakthrough technology resulting in more coverage, less waste and better results.”
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has established a new 483.80 guideline that requires health care facilities to maintain an infection prevention and control program designed to provide a safe, sanitary and comfortable environment and to help prevent the development and transmission of communicable diseases and infections. Bonafide’s Bac-Track solution has been designed to help comply with these guidelines. The Bac-Track solution allows health care facilities to review contamination by facility, department, EVS or housekeeper, and supports floor plan monitoring.
According to CDC Options for Evaluation Environmental Cleaning, Level II Guidelines, Appendix B, “the ATP system has been used to broadly document significant improvements in daily cleaning as well as provide quantitative measurement to indicate the level of cleanliness of high touch surfaces.”
The EPIX360 is a powerful, efficient, and cost-effective disinfectant application system. The patented system places an appropriate electrostatic charge to disinfectant as it leaves the spray nozzle, giving each droplet a powerful attraction to its opposite charge. High-touch point areas such as desks, tabletops, chairs, door handles, cabinet handles, light switches, and more are effectively covered. EPIX360 helps stop the unnecessary spread of infections through cordless, mobile, and effective application.
“We are thrilled to introduce the EPIX360 at ISSA 2019 before its public release in early 2020,” said George Robertson, CEO, EMist. According to Robertson, “The EPIX360 will help prevent the spread of infection with its revolutionary technology.”
EPIX360 can be used in:
- Care Clinics: To keep patients and staff safe from pathogen transmission and sickness by effectively and efficiently disinfecting after each patient visit.
- Emergency Medical Services: Safeguard patients and EMS personnel after every patient transport to eliminate dangerous pathogens.
- Education: Prevent the spread of bacteria to keep your children protected from an unnecessary outbreak of the flu this year.
The EPIX360 will be available at an introductory price of $995 at the ISSA Conference in Las Vegas, booth 1900. This will be the first reveal and an exclusive pre-order opportunity for the EPIX360 handheld sprayer. Once the pre-order closes, the unit will maintain a price of $1,495 MAP.
