A leading hair clinic in Manchester has become the first in the UK to introduce two state-of-the-art UV air sterilisers in a move that it hopes will help keep patients and staff safe from coronavirus and stave off any potential infections.
Having been operating in the city for more than 27 years, the clinic is world renowned for being at the cutting edge of innovation and having an outstanding team of hair surgeons and clinical staff. However, like many businesses in the region, the clinic was forced to close due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Leading surgeon and founder of the institute, Dr Bessam Farjo said: “Despite a temporary closure due to lockdown restrictions, we are thankful to once again be open and continuing to help our patients when needed.
“The safety of both our staff and our patients had been our utmost priority, and for this reason, we are operating a careful and responsible level of service to make sure our facilities are ‘COVID-secure’.
“The introduction of two new FagronLab™ UVGI-80 UV Air Sterilizers is but another measure we’re taking to keep everyone safe, as well as following social distancing guidelines and using equipment/PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) USA and NHS UK etc.”
FagronLab™ UVGI-80 UV Air Sterilizers provide dynamic indoor air disinfection for enclosed spaces such as hospitals, pharmacies, labs, waiting rooms, schools, offices, retail stores, gyms and more, helping to keep both staff and customers safe.
The devices use long-life, C-band (wavelength 253.7nm) ozone-free ultraviolet to improve microbial air safety against viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Dan Barton, Marketing Communication Manager at Fagron, commented: “We’re thrilled to have our sterilisers in situ at Farjo Hair Institute, helping to provide an extra layer of safety for Dr Farjo and his team.
“The FagronLab™ UVGI-80 UV Air Sterilizer is truly an ingenious device that’s simple to operate and maintain, whilst continuously disinfecting the air to keep you safe.
“Moreover, as it helps combat all manner of viruses and bacteria, it’s a great way to keep your workspace or office as clean and hygienic as possible – you’re investing in the future health of your staff, customers and business.”
