Hygiene and sterilization: Hightech for clean surfaces

Dear Sir or Madam,

The Corona pandemic has brought hygiene and disinfection issues into our everyday lives. They have always played a role in hospital operations, doctors' offices and laboratories. In our Topic of the Month, you can find out how high-tech can help hospital staff in the fight against pathogens and which measures are effective in the production of sterile medical products.

Stay healthy!
