During epidemic or pandemic situation, Bertin Medical Waste meets the needs of the healthcare sector through innovative technologies to deal with the spread of a virus.
The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed the limits of our systems to manage a health crisis. Tackling the spread of a virus without a known treatment such as SARS-CoV-2 has become paramount. Present and surviving in the waste, the use of externals waste collection services for the treatment of biohazardous waste represents a strong risk of external contamination. The Sterilwave technology developed by Bertin Medical Waste significantly reduces the risk of contamination outside hospital sites. Indeed, this shredding and microwave treatment system sterilizes medical waste potentially infected with a virus such as SARS-CoV-2 and transforms it into municipal waste without risk of contamination. This easy-to-use equipment makes it possible to treat waste directly on hospital sites or other places where the virus is treated and / or detected (screening center, vaccination center, temporary facilities), thus avoiding transportation of waste and possible hazardous liquid effluents. Bertin Technologies, through its Bertin Instruments and Bertin Bioreagent brands, also offers innovative laboratory equipment, analysis tools, reagents and kits, that allow scientists to better study viruses.
