The Complete Solution to Hospital Hygiene
Antec International was founded to offer innovative biosecurity approaches to healthcare professionals and users throughout the world with the desired aim of reducing the transmission of infectious diseases.
Antec International is a private company operating from modern offices, laboratories and production facilities in Sudbury, Suffolk. The company's main activity is the research, development and manufacture of disease/infection control products in liquid and powder plants. Operating to the highest standards, with two manufacturing units comprising 40,000 sq feet with both facilities computer controlled, Antec International was awarded IS09002 in 1994. Maintaining the highest standards is vitally important and the company is now moving towards ISO9001:2000. Although it involves constant assessment and checking procedures, Antec International welcomes this process and are proud to be one of the first companies to achieve the new standard.
Antec International's products for human health are distributed worldwide through a distributor network in over 60 countries. From Antarctica through to Zimbabwe, in the fight to prevent the spread of infection Antec's Human Health products are internationally recognised as the new standard. Whether it is sterilising high technology instruments for organ transplants in Europe or disinfecting visitors to the Antartic, Antec products travel the globe ensuring fighting infection knows no borders.
Standards of hygiene in hospitals are of real concern to patients and Antec International is in a position to offer the complete solution to hospital hygiene and Hospital Acquired Infection, with two environmentally friendly products. Virkon and PeraSafe together address the need for general cleaning, disinfection and the more exacting requirements of instrument sterilisation. Both products offer exceptional user safety, an important issue for staff, who work with cleaning products on a daily basis.
Virkon is established as a multi-purpose, safe and effective high-level disinfectant, suitable for one step cleaning, disinfection of medical surfaces or laboratory equipment requiring decontamination. Supplied in powder form for safe easy storage, Virkon offers economy by replacing the majority of disinfectant products, saving money on stock control and staff time and labour costs. To complement Virkon, Antec International introduced PeraSafe - a cold liquid sterilant. Especially effective in endoscopy, which requires rapid disinfection without damage to sensitive and expensive instruments, PeraSafe can be used in Automated Endoscope Reprocessors, with only 10 minute disinfection cycles. PeraSafe is cost effective, obviating the need for special disposal and handling precautions. Its user safety profile means that there are no long-term effects to users, which allied to its rapid tuberculocidal and sporicidal efficacy and other benefits means it is now the professional choice.
Antec International recognise that their most valuable resource is their people. Investors In People is a UK initiative, designed to identify the best companies in terms of training and commitment to staff and to raise that company's standards even higher. Antec International became the first infection control company to gain accreditation in 1996 and the company is committed to maintaining this high standard throughout all areas of its business.
