In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, Bertin meets the needs of the healthcare sector with innovative technologies to tackle the challenge of the SARS-CoV-2.
The Covid-19 pandemic reveals the limits of our systems to manage a health crisis. The fight against the spread of a virus without a known treatment such as SARS-CoV-2 has become paramount.
The technology Sterilwave developed by Bertin Medical Waste considerably reduces the risk of contamination outside hospital sites. Thanks to its automated grinding and its microwave sterilization process it transforms medical waste potentially infected with SARS-CoV-2 into municipal waste. This easy-to-use equipment makes it possible to treat the waste directly on hospital sites or other places treating the virus, thus avoiding transport and possible hazardous liquid effluent.
Bertin Instruments and Bertin Bioreagent also offer innovative laboratory equipment and analytical tools, kits and reagents that allow scientists to better understand the virus:
– Coriolis Air Samplers to control the presence of SARS-CoV-2
– Precellys Homogenizers for sample preparation
– SARS-Cov-2 Detection Kits
