Update CAHMV 2020
Due to the current corona measures we modified the format of this year's CAHMV. For the first time the CAHMV will take place as an online event only. To be able to realise this, we had to make some program changes. Information about the program and registration can be found on our event page (https://brillhygiene.com/en/akademie/termine/online-6th-conference-applied-hygiene-microbiology-and-virology). Due to these changes, the ticket price could be reduced significantly. Despite the circumstances we are looking forward to an informative CAHMV! If you have any questions, please contact us.

Dr. Brill receives GLP certificate
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Brill + Partner GmbH Institut für Hygiene und Mikrobiologie has received a GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) certificate from the Hamburg Authority for Health and Consumer Protection. The certificate (https://brillhygiene.com/sites/default/files/company/certificates/GLP-Be...) includes the categories: 2 - Tests to determine toxicological properties 3 - Tests for determining mutagenic properties (in vitro, in vivo) 9 - Other tests: Microbiological and biochemical testing of cleaning, disinfection and sterilization processes. Category 9 thus comprises the company's main areas of work on efficacy testing of disinfectants and antiseptics as well as the validation of reprocessing processes for medical devices. In categories 2 and 3, only in vitro procedures are offered and carried out. We are very pleased that this GLP certification opens up new opportunities for the company. These include the world's largest market for disinfectant efficacy testing and validation of reprocessing processes for medical devices, the United States. We are pleased about the extension of our accreditation by the DAkkS according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, which has been in existence since 2006, and the recognition of the ZLG as a medical device testing laboratory (https://brillhygiene.com/sites/default/files/company/certificates/ZLG%20...), which has been confirmed since 2011. In addition, we have been operating a GCP (Good Clinical Practice) system since 2018, which we use to carry out microbiological and virological tests on voluntary, healthy test persons.

Successful candidacy: Dr. Florian Brill elected to the Plenum of the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce
In the 2020 plenary election of the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, the electoral alliance Starke Wirtschaft Hamburg, of which Dr. Florian Brill was also a member, was able to win 71 % of all votes. Dr. Florian Brill successfully ran in the electoral group "Services" for medium-sized companies and will now represent his goals in the plenary session of the Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Brill and the entire electoral alliance "Starke Wirtschaft Hamburg" would like to thank you for the trust you have placed in us and for your great support over the past few weeks. Dr. Brill said about his motivation before the election: "My goals are to reunite the chamber in order to achieve that honorary and full-time office work together again in an optimal way. I would like the Chamber of Commerce to be perceived again as the voice of Hamburg's economy, loud and clear. This is important in order to tackle the challenges facing the City of Hamburg on the issues of digital transformation, the shortage of skilled workers and the dilemma of "transport space" vs. "commercial space" vs. "living space" for a golden future for the city. SMEs in particular need a chamber of commerce with a 360° view, so that it can be at your side in all phases, from start-up, through transformation, innovation and the development of new business fields, internationalisation, and the training and further education of skilled workers. This is what I will fight for, always taking the values of a family entrepreneur and VEEK as my foundation. So that Hamburg becomes even more successful." https://www.facebook.com/StarkeWirtschaftHamburg/posts/187508182650236
