PDI International enters into partnership with 99Technologies
Northamptonshire, UK: PDI International, leader in infection prevention products and solutions, today announced its official partnership with Swiss-based 99Technologies, developers of the innovative HyperDRYMist® technology (HDM®). HDM® is a highly efficacious automated room disinfection system proven to eradicate pathogens from surfaces easily and sustainably.
HyperDRYMist® is a novel technology that consists of a portable micro-nebulizer which transforms a patented, non-toxic formulation containing a low concentration of hydrogen peroxide and other co-formulants into an ultra-fine mist, for maximum impact and efficacy. Thanks to its unique formula, the system provides high material compatibility and complete coverage safely and efficiently.
The incorporation of HyperDRYMist® technology within PDI International’s portfolio addresses the need for an integrated approach to infection prevention across diverse sectors including healthcare, industrial, hospitality and transportation. Its addition extends PDI International’s Environment of Care portfolio from hard surfaces to total room disinfection.
“We are proud of our 40-year legacy in assisting the healthcare industry with products and solutions that help reduce the risk of infections,” said David Gueundjian, President and Chief Executive Officer, PDI International. “Our partnership with 99Technologies is among our most recent efforts supporting our continued mission to reduce preventable infections, control associated costs, and ultimately help save lives across the healthcare continuum of care and beyond. With 99Technologies, we have a partner that not only shares our values, but also our mission to develop innovative technologies that make a real difference to healthcare professionals and patients.”
Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) affect approximately 4 million people, with an associated 110,000 deaths in Europe annually¹. Of these HAIs, Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is one of the most deadly and hard-to-kill microorganisms that are most commonly found in healthcare environments.
Gian Luca Malaguti Simoni, Chairman at 99Technologies adds, “With its extensive expertise as an infection prevention innovator, PDI is well positioned to help us further progress the growth and development of our ARD technologies and continue to fulfil 99 Technologies’ mission to provide hospitals and industries with leading-edge technology for automated room disinfection.”
