Phase 3-test developed with University Medical Center Hamburg UKE
Dr. Brill + Partner developed in a research project financed by the Hamburg health authorities and in cooperation with the Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf a phase 3 test model for surface disinfection procedures. The model includes clinical isolated organisms as well as practice-like surfaces from the hospital in the phase 3 step 1-test as well as the opportunity to perform field studies in the UKE. In addition, the application of the product was developed further meeting practical conditions. The data will be presented on the DGKH-event on May 12 and 13 in Essen. The paper is in preparation but tests can be order with us as of now. In case you are interested please feel free to contact us.

Validation of disinfection procedures for pharma industry
In pharma industry production site that would like or need to change their hygiene regimen, the new established process has to be validated. Based on our phase 3-research project as well as existing standards such as EN 13697 and EN 16615 we can offer such validations with locally in the production site isolated test organisms and surface materials from the site. Please contact us in case you are interested.

Dr. Brill at 33rd ECCMID
Dr. Brill + Partner GmbH Institute for Hygiene and Microbiology. will be present at the 33rd ECCMID from the 15th-18th April 2023 in Copenhagen. Our team will have a poster about the project: "BioRes Test: A standardized test to determine the development of resistance in microorganisms against biocides". Here is a short summary: Surface disinfectants and antimicrobial surfaces are important for hygiene and the protection of materials. However, bacteria can develop resistance to disinfectants and material-protection agents, increasing the risk of cross-resistance to antibiotics. Disinfectants and antimicrobial material coatings are approved within the framework of the EU biocide regulation but there is currently a lack of standardized test methods that would provide industrial applicants and the assessing authorities with a framework for assessment. The aim of this project is to develop a standardized test method to determine the potential for the development of resistance and cross-resistance when using surface disinfectants and antimicrobial surfaces. The focus is on the development of resistance through de novo mutations and the test procedures are developed on the basis of procedures previously published in scientific journals. We are looking forward to exciting conversations!
