Infection prevention in health care 

Microorganisms are essential to life - a natural part of our environment. They exist naturally in our environment without being visible. Human beings have harnessed them to our benefit in the production of life-saving antibiotics and vaccines, and in the production, preservation and fermentation of a wide variety of foods. But other microorganisms known as germs (pathogens) may be harmful, causing infections and contamination.

Today, more than ever, germs cross borders. Their existence is dangerous, but not as dangerous as underestimating the threat they pose. Counter-measures deal more with treating the symptoms rather than fighting the causes. Precautions are therefore key.

schülke's products and services help to protect people from infections and materials from contamination. Prevention also plays a key role, because preventing contamination and infections is much easier than fighting them.
