Are your surfaces just visibly clean, or are they actually physically clean?

Organic material such as blood and faeces provide the perfect environment for harmful microorganisms such as C. diff to flourish. For this reason, achieving the highest standards of cleaning in our hospitals is the fundamental criteria for preventing hospital acquired infections.

CiFi stands for Cleaning Inspection for Forensic Investigation and the CiFi TORCH was developed as a forensic tool to detect traces of biological material for the police. As a portable device helping to prevent crime scene contamination, the CiFi TORCH is used by various law enforcement agencies around the world. Utilising this innovative technology to help healthcare professionals detect otherwise invisible, yet potential pathogen harbouring biological sources is a logical step in the CiFi TORCH application spectrum.

“The CiFi TORCH has changed how we clean our forensic environments. Our crisis workers who ensure forensic integrity is maintained, were able to visualise the surfaces they cleaned, and this has led to an improvement in service delivery for the criminal justice system.”

The CiFi TORCH will revolutionise preventative cleaning in healthcare

The light wavelength of 445nm is the optimal wavelength for detecting biological matter. The CiFi TORCH generates high intensity light in the 437nm – 458nm range making is a totally unique solution.

The 6 benefits of the CiFi TORCH to healthcare at a glance:

  • Allows healthcare workers to visualise levels of contamination on surfaces they are cleaning.
  • Invaluable training tool driving cleaning process improvement.
  • A precise auditing asset covering 100%
  • of surfaces rather than limited sampling.
  • Light, portable, and easy to handle.
  • No additional consumables required
  • Absolute discretion, only authorised staff wearing the CiFi TORCH protective goggles will see the results.
