Research for infection protection

Bacteria incl. multiple drug resistances

Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that may be resistant to an antibiotic or even to several antibiotics.

Multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens spread faster and faster and demand consistent hygiene management. In addition to Gram-positive pathogens such as MRSA, Gram-negative increasingly pose a major challenge to healthcare facilities. Here, you will find practical recommendations on how to deal with antibiotic-resistant pathogens and information on risk assessment and appropriate hygiene measures.

Infection protection in case of tuberculosis

Besides HIV/AIDS and malaria, tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most common infectious diseases worldwide. Although the number of new TB infections throughout the world decreases by 1.5 per cent per year [1], in 2014 around 1.5...[more]

Hygiene management in case of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative (MRGN) pathogens

In outpatient and inpatient care facilities around the globe, multidrug-resistant Gram-negative (MRGN) bacilli develop into a serious danger. Two thirds of the deaths linked to nosocomial infection are attributed to MRGN already....[more]

Hygiene measures in case of EHEC

Enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli, or EHEC for short, are E. coli bacteria able to produce toxins in the body, causing the currently occurring severe EHEC infections.
New strain The pathogen responsible for the current EHEC...[more]

Hygiene measures in the event of ESBL/CRE

The increasing prevalence of gram-negative Enterobacteriaceae being resistant to antibiotics poses new challenges to healthcare facilities around the globe. Enterobacteriaceae that are able to form enzymes with extended...[more]
