More Antimicrobial Protection For DDC Dolphin Bedpan Washer Disinfectors

World-class infection prevention specialist DDC Dolphin has added more antimicrobial protection to some of its advanced bedpan washer disinfectors.
DDC Dolphin’s Panamatic Midi, Maxi, Optima 2 and Optima 3 bedpan washers have all had recent updates to further enhance their performance and economy.

The updates include more antimicrobial protection for the:

  • New Midi – the protected touch area is 2.5 times larger than on the previous model. The lid and front panel now have antimicrobial protection. Previously it was just in the lid.
  • New Maxi – now with antimicrobial protection (front panel and decals).
  • New Optima 2 – antimicrobial protection is now in the front panel and lid, making the protected area 2.5 times bigger. Previously this protection was just in the lid.
  • New Optima 3 – now with antimicrobial protection (front panel and decals).

DDC Dolphin specifies award-winning Biomaster product antimicrobial protection for its bedpan washer disinfectors and medical pulp macerators.

Biomaster is a world leader in the use of silver-ion technology to reduce microbial loads supporting infection control. Silver has long been known for its natural antibacterial properties. 

Biomaster product antimicrobial protection is moulded into the plastics used in the manufacture of DDC Dolphin infection prevention and control equipment.

The silver ions work at a cellular level, disrupting the DNA of bacteria. This stops them from growing or replicating, so they die. Silver ions – though primarily effective against bacteria – can also combat the spread of viruses such as Norovirus and Covid19.

Silver is inorganic and non-leaching so – unlike organic antibacterial technologies – it remains within the item to which it has been added.

It becomes an integral part of the product, preventing the growth of bacteria – without the high toxicity associated with other metals.

DDC Dolphin Marketing and HR Director Zoe Allen said: “We’ve been building antimicrobial protection into our sluice room equipment for many years.

“Our latest series of upgrades has given us the opportunity to increase this powerful protection – benefiting hospitals and care homes all over the world,” she added.

DDC Dolphin develops, manufactures and supplies a wide range of sluice room machines. Its products include:

  • bedpan washer disinfectors 
  • medical pulp macerators
  • incontinence product macerators
  • Vacumatic waste management system
  • UVC water trap disinfector
  • UV air purifiers

  • sluice room consumables.

Qualifying capital equipment from DDC Dolphin is eligible for tax breaks. Companies can apply for a tax cut of up to 25p for every pound they invest. This incentive was extended in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement last year.
