The Hand-In-Scan Semmelweis Rub&Go System received the 3rd prize at the 2021 Innovation Academy. As the original Semmelweis System received the 1st prize at the 1st ICPIC Innovation Academy in 2011 we have to make the Rub&Go System even more successful than the original one.
The Semmelweis System allows immediate evaluation of hand hygiene technique evaluation with a special fluorescently labeled alcoholic training solution. To achieve this, the scanner employs harmless blue light exposure. The system provides objective overall quality assessment scores and creates reports and statistics. The innovative technology of the Semmelweis Rub&Go is made primarily for education and plays a major role in the control of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs).
With the Rub&Go edition HandInScan is expanding its range of products by introducing the new Semmelweis Rub&Go as part of their Semmelweis System. First, and most importantly, it enables multiple applications per day, therefore supporting total quality assurance.
Care providers can now conveniently verify their hand hygiene practice – whenever and wherever it is needed during their daily workflow.
The new fluorescent dye is safe, registered, and licensable across industries It can be effectively used in healthcare environments, public spaces, and office facilities as well as in the pharma and food industry.
Both hand rub and hand wash control available.
The biocide registration of the new fluorescently labeled hand rub is its final steps.
The scientific review from the Innovation Academy jury and the media awareness resulting from the prize helped tremendously to lunch this product on the international market.
In the last two years 23 organizations in 8 different countries used the Semmelweis Rub&Go System with great satisfaction.
