Dr. Brill recommends: Hytrain training set
Patented process developed for hygiene training: Making germs, transmission paths and disinfection visible, thereby improving hygiene compliance. Germs are invisible...Unknowingly, this can create a deceptive feeling of security. After all, the transmission of microorganisms from one surface to the next happens in secret. But it is precisely this mechanism that must be consciously demonstrated in hygiene training courses, so that correct behavior can then be anchored and successfully transferred into practice. A white surface - the trainer takes a colorless spray and sprays it on the surface: blue dots gradually appear in front of the participants' eyes - astonishment and questioning looks... are these the germs that are on the surface? Now the leader uses the blue "germs" to illustrate transmission paths: from a surface via gloved hands to the sterile packaging of a venous catheter and on to the arm of a patient manikin. After appropriate explanations, the next "aha effect" follows. The success of disinfection becomes visible: Another colorless solution - applicable as a spray or cloth soaking solution - makes the blue "germs" disappear again before the eyes of the participants. However, this is only possible if the correct technique is used and the surfaces are sufficiently wetted. Neither UV light nor a darkened room are necessary: The deceptively real simulation takes place in daylight and in front of a large audience. This is made possible by the HyTrain® training set - a new and patented training system.  Depending on the field of activity, many practical processes can be simulated with the HyTrain® training set: specifically for doctors, nurses and cleaning staff. The visual power of the demonstration makes any language barriers of the participants less important. Even the effectiveness of hand disinfection can be demonstrated on gloved hands. The HyTrain® training set was recently patented. Further information: www.hytrain.de ©HyTrain GmbH

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.
