Point of Use Water Quality Check Kit for Dental Unit Waterlines
Germiphene, a Canadian owned and operated company, has developed an effective chair-side water quality test kit that is less costly, more convenient and produces reliable results faster than traditional laboratory testing which is essential to optimal infection prevention and control (IPAC) measures when bacterial counts exceed standards and appropriate corrective action is required. The test kit’s effectiveness has been tested in laboratory and traditional dental practice environments. However, Germiphene is now seeking to compare its test kit results against conventional laboratory tests in a busy multi-user educational dental environment such as George Brown College.
