All around us exist harmful pathogens that cause illness and infection, and they are most commonly spread by human hands and feet. No matter how stringent your hand washing procedures and SSOPs are, humans are prone to variability and error, resulting in poor hand hygiene and increased risk of spreading pathogens. That’s why Meritech invented CleanTech®: automatic handwashing technology that guarantees proper hygiene to reduce the spread of infection and harmful pathogens. 

So how does CleanTech® guarantee improved hand hygiene? The secret is in the automation! The below infographic illustrates the differences between a traditional manually-conducted hand wash and an automated one conducted in a CleanTech® system.
