Baclyser® TL/TR (2M)

Point-of-use hollow fibre membrane filter for water taps

  • Safe protection against waterborne bacteria
  • CE-marked medical device
  • Operating time of up to 2 months
  • Hygienic design to avoid retrograde contamination
  •  Narrow construction depth (51 mm – TL version)
  • Offset outlet for more flexibility
The Baclyser® tap filters: TL with laminar outlet and TR with shower rose outlet are CE-marked medical devices. These are disposable, point-of-use, hollow fibre membrane water filters with a proven retention efficiency of 7 Log steps for Brevundimonas diminuta. This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtered water. Thus, all waterborne bacteria such as pseudomonas and legionella are blocked by these tap filters. The hygienic design and use of bacteriostatic material in the filter outlet prevents retrograde contamination. The filter is designed to deliver a consistent bacteriological performance at the design flow rate for the up to 2-months dependent on water quality. On expiry of the operating time, the used filter can be easily changed via the quick release coupling and then disposed of responsibly. The individual barcode on each filter supports traceability and documentation processes within hospitals hygiene routines.

Baclyser® S (2M)

Point-of-use shower filter

  • Safe protection against waterborne bacteria
  • CE-marked medical device
  • Operating time of up to 2 months
  • Hygienic design to avoid retrograde  contamination
The Baclyser® S (2M) point-of-use water filter is a CE-marked medical product. It is a disposable shower head enclosing a hollow fibre membrane water filter with a proven retention efficiency of 7 Log steps for Brevundimonas diminuta (the smallest water bacterium). This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtrated water.

Baclyser® WG

In-line hollow fibre membrane filter delivering safe, sterile water to birthing pools

  • Effective protection against waterborne pathogens
  • Sterile filtration for reliable water hygiene
  • High flow rate
  • Operating time of up to 3 months
  • CE-marked medical device
  • Quick-release couplings for easy filter changing
Baclyser® WG is a CE-marked medical device and has been developed specially for the sterile filtration of water in the supply line of birthing pools. It is equipped with a 0.2μm hollow fibre membrane for microfiltration ensuring bacterial retention resulting in 7 log reduction of Brevundimonas diminuta. This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtered water. The filter thus holds back all microbes present in the water system such as Pseudomonas and Legionella bacteria.

Filtration does not alter the chemical composition of the water. Baclyser® WG supplies microbe-free water at a high flow rate allowing rapid filling of the pool. The quick-release coupling of the filter connections and the aqua stop incorporated in the filter inlet allow an easy filter change. After the end of its service life the filter can be disposed of in the appropriate way.

WoundLyser 1M

Point-of-use hollow fibre membrane technology provides sterile filtered water for the rinsing of wounds

WoundLyser 1M is a CE-marked medical device, which is especially offered for a patient-related use for rinsing wounds during a hospital stay. This point-of-use filter includes a hollow fibre membrane, which has a retention of 7 log steps of Brevundimonas diminuta. According to the recommendations of the commission for hospital hygiene and infection prevention at the German Robert Koch Institute, the WoundLyser provides 0.2 μm filtered water for wound cleansing. Within the period of one month, the wound shower can be left to the patient for further use in outpatient care.

  • Reliable protection against waterborne bacteria from tap water up to 1 month
  • Thorough and gentle wound cleansing
  • Easy to install and convenient to change
  • Hygienic design to avoid retrograde contamination 
  • CE-marked medical device
WoundLyser is a CE-marked medical device. This disposable water filter is a point-of-use filter with a hollow fibre membrane. Its retention efficiency is 7 log steps for Brevundimonas diminuta, the smallest water bacterium. This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtered water. The filter thus holds back all microbes present in supplied water, e.g. Pseudomonas and Legionella bacteria. To prevent microbial colonisation of the filter as a result of splash water it is recommended to disinfect the housing and shower rose with alcohol wipes after every use of the WoundLyser. The hygienic design and the use of bacteriostatic material at the filter outlet provide additional protection against retrograde contamination. WoundLyser has an operating time of up to 1 month depending on water quality and delivers bacteria-free water at constant flow rates, providing patients with reliable protection against waterborne bacteria.
After the end of its operating time the used filter must be replaced and disposed of. It is very easy to install and replace the WoundLyser on all common shower hoses because of the G½ inch thread. A unique bar code on each filter guarantees full traceability.
