Innovation Day: Hygiene 4.0

On Thursday, March 5, 2020, the Working Group Hygiene Regensburg will organize the first Innovation Day: Hygiene 4.0 in Regensburg. As part of this Working Group we are happy to be co-organizer of the event.

Innovation Day: Hygiene 4.0 in Regensburg

Hygiene protects and saves lives. Against the background of increasing and newly developing antibiotic resistance, the prevention and treatment of nosocomial infections is of particular relevance to health care. In addition to early, rapid and precise diagnosis, it is important to exploit prevention potentials as fully as possible by avoiding or reducing bacterial exposure. Materials and surfaces, antiseptic coating processes of hygienically relevant surfaces as well as easy-to-clean or sterilizable constructions of medical devices and equipment play an essential role in this context.

At the Innovation Day, among other things, updates on transmission control and clarification of outbreaks of pathogens will be given and various methods for reducing the germ load in the clinical environment will be presented. In addition, the conference with industrial exhibition offers an excellent opportunity for trade exhibitors for interdisciplinary exchange with experts from research, industry and application.
