Clinically Validated

Starbucks-ELF-User

We have conducted extensive efficacy studies in FDA-certified laboratories to prove that CleanTech® handwashing systems consistently remove more than 99.9% of harmful pathogens with each wash cycle. These studies were conducted on CleanTech® equipment using Meritech Hygiene Solutions. These independent laboratories specialized in topical antimicrobials and the science of hands and used the ASTM hand hygiene testing that is mandated by the FDA in the Guidelines for Healthcare Hand Hygiene TFM to test our CleanTech® systems.

The ASTM hand hygiene testing is only standard in the United States for validating hand hygiene effectiveness, and this standard employs the “Glove Juice Test Methodology” which is administered in a controlled environment that minimized the variables that affect skin hygiene testing.

Across these studies it was validated that Meritech’s CleanTech® automated hygiene systems remove more than 99.9% of pathogens from hands during each 12-second cycle.

Consistently Effective

Handwashing is the most powerful defense against the transmission of pathogens, but humans are prone to error, leaving room for contamination in your facility. CleanTech® provides a hand wash that exceeds FDA, USDA, and CDC requirements in 12 seconds, every time. By automating the process, you remove the variability of human behavior, in turn reducing your risk and increasing employee compliance.

While we are certainly proud of our innovative technology, Meritech is more than an equipment manufacturer—we are a strategic partner in hygiene excellence. Our goal is to make effective handwashing easy, effective, and sustainable for the environment, all while providing you with real-time and simplified insights from our CleanTech® systems to help you proactively address hygiene compliance issues.

Uniquely Formulated Solutions

Solutions---3-cascade---transparent - 1200x800Meritech's proprietary solution formulations are specifically designed to work with our automated hygiene system to ensure the removal of 99.9% of pathogens during each hand washing cycle. Not only are these unique solutions designed for optimal pathogen reduction and skin health, they are also alcohol-free, fragrance-free, triclosan-free, dye-free, biodegradable and kosher.

When employee hands are placed in the hand washing cylinders, jets deploy water and our proprietary solution evenly across all areas of the hands, achieving a balance of removal of dangerous pathogens without excessive damage to the skin, in two ways - gentle friction using a mild anti-microbial and balanced formulation of surfactants, and the addition of skin healthy emollients in our solutions to promote skin health and a normal skin ecology.

“I don’t think I could be happier with the service and product your company provides to us. Very quick and convenient.”

"We love our hand wash machine and receive compliments on it daily. I love that it needs little to no maintenance from my staff and has not rusted or slowed down a bit. It is always functioning properly due to the maintenance your techs provide when they make quarterly or semi-quarterly check-ups. This is SUCH a valuable service in itself. We are not "big fish" customers but you would never know that because we receive quality, caring, and professional service since day one."

“Our experiences with Meritech have all been positive! When I reached out to you to renew our contract after it expired, getting it renewed was very easy and quick. I was also pleasantly surprised with how quickly you had a technician out to check out our system. He was very respectful when he was on site, as well as very efficient to get things completed. This was awesome because it can obviously put a strain on production if the handwash isn't usable for an extended period during the production day.”

“The Meritech hand-washing units have greatly improved our compliance in areas that were previously challenging. We have units in high-volume cooking and service areas where employees are using them regularly and often. We are very pleased with the acceptance and use-rate by staff. We also feel we have more peace of mind knowing that the Meritech units are close to crucial work areas and are being used as they should be. These units certainly enhance our food safety and hand hygiene protocol.”

“We absolutely love our handwashing machines. We have had several students touring our plant in the last month who have commented on how cool they are. They seem to dry our hands out less than our old hand soap and conventional sink. I am happy to say we have not had a single complaint! We are hoping to purchase more units in the future!”
