When the MERS epidemic struck, hospitals in Saudi Arabia needed to increase the number of isolation rooms rapidly. Genano has helped in building new negative pressure isolation rooms to keep patients, visitors and health care professionals safe.
UZ Leuven, the largest hospital in Belgium, uses Genano air purifiers to protect patients in critical condition, such as after organ transplantation.
Genano Customer Case – Patient safety comes first in Belgiums largest hospital
Genano has delivered a total of over 150 air purifiers to Polish regional hospitals responsible for hematology and oncology. Genano air purifiers are used as an additional system for maintaining high air hygiene level in rooms with immunosuppressed patients.
“Since using Genano air purifiers we have had a marked increase in our success rates in terms of first time pregnancy results and less miscarriages”, summarises Dr.
The air brought to the laboratories is decontaminated by a Genano air purifier before entering the room. In addition, stand-alone Genano units are
used to circulate and purify the air in critical spaces. “Genano system is a perfect solution for our needs”, summarizes Mr. Tenkanen.
The aim of using Genano air purifiers was to prevent airborne particles from spreading in the premises. Genano air purifiers were placed in the working rooms that had the greatest influence on the purity of the products. In these rooms, the final products are dispensed, liquids and buffers are prepared and other laboratory work is performed.
Due to internally raised concerns, one area of SUERC premises was closed in 2012 for a thorough air quality study. SUERC was committed to raise the air quality to a higher level to keep the health risks to the staff at a minimum. Additionally, they found the regular changing of HEPA filters inconvenient and the cost of the filters expensive.
The clinical Radiopharmacy deparment of the Clinical Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Institute of the university clinic Mannheim needed to reduce the number of particles in the production process. The institute wanted to follow Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines for radiopharmaceuticals according to the German and international guidelines to improve air quality in a special manufacturing sector.
This laboratory contamination study was conducted in the United Kingdom. The client in this contamination study is an international, UK headquartered company, developing, manufacturing and marketing a wide range of specialized bio-research reagents that simplify, accelerate and improve life sciences research. The Genano 310 unit is used in one of their UK based laboratories, to keep the air quality acceptable for use in their quality control laboratory.
“In recent years, there have been efforts to renovate and seal parts of the school. However, the enhanced ventilation has led to different fine particles being released from the structures. The exposure of students and staff to IAQ problems is followed yearly by surveys. Partly because of these survey results, we decided to equip every classroom and staff work space with a Genano air purifier.”
The kindergarten had been showing signs of indoor air quality problems due to sick building syndrome: people had repeated sinusitis, fever and headache.
Of the two identical departments of the kindergarten, they equipped one department with Genano air purifiers and the other one with a competing brand.
The municipality of Kangasniemi in middle-Finland faced indoor air quality problems simultaneously in several real estates in the year 2010. The municipal technical services conducted a survey on how they could afford the repair work, estimated to be worth tens of millions of euros, at worst.The municipality saved altogether ca. 360 000 € by using Genano air purifiers instead of acquiring temporary working spaces.
SMART SCHOOL is the first scientific research project in Poland aimed at showing the impact of properly selected work environment on improving not only student health, but also on improving their learning, cognitive function and increased activity during classes. The project was carried out by WPIP, private contractor for industrial, office, constructing and technological investments. Genano air purifiers were part of the project, creating safer indoor air.
The staff and pupils of Seppo School, located in Northern-Tapiola Finland, had been showing symptoms of poor indoor air quality for years. The school had undergone major renovations and cleaning operations, but these were unable to fully cure all the symptoms.
