SUMMARY

Aseptium provides innovative decontamination solutions that reduce infections carried by dirty surgical instruments.

We research, design, prototype, manufacture and evaluate products for healthcare and laboratory markets

Created in 2014, led by Pawel de Sternberg Stojalowski and now based in the Scottish Highlands, Aseptium encompasses a decade of experience with top-end decontamination equipment.

Our uSonic range of advanced ultrasonic washers deal with the pre-cleaning and automated cleaning, and VeriTest answers the question: "HOW CLEAN IS CLEAN?" using science.

Being a leader in technologies for decontamination of complex surgical instruments

OUR VISION

OUR 'WHY'

Surgeons specialise in every organ of the human body, so do surgical instruments. It is amazing that we save people from conditions deemed fatal even a few years ago. Those new instruments are typically complex, expensive and reusable. We expect them to be safe to use every time, but that complexity makes them difficult to clean.

7-10% of patients acquire an infection during their stay in a hospital. A part of those can be attributed to dirty surgical instruments.

It is a global challenge: to make complex instruments safe for every surgery, for every patient.

This is what we specialise in.

We developed uSonic, a range of advanced ultrasonic washers to address pre-cleaning and automated cleaning, and VeriTest - a family of process challenge devices (HTM 01-01 compliant), with protein-based test soil and  multi-dimensional approach introduces a new standard in cleaning verification.

We are innovating medical decontamination technologies. We are working to improve healthcare safety.

INTENDED IMPACT

A decade of R&D in decontamination sciences made us realise the scale of the problem increasing complexity of surgical instruments brings to hospital staff and patients alike. A solution to this problem is a global market opportunity.

Cleaning is a cost and challenge for healthcare. Advanced instruments have to be cleaned and sterilised outside and inside – including all internal features. We've seen that the problem is the diversity and complexity of those tools, with surgical robots leading the trend.

We've seen that part of the cleaning is still done manually: labour intensive, inconsistent and costly. And in our experience, existing technologies recirculate dirty water, cross contaminating instruments.

Our patent-pending technology used in uSonics reduces that risk by cleaning without reusing dirty water, while VeriTest verifies cleaning effectiveness.

We are addressing a worldwide problem, made worse by prion diseases such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, and the rise of antibiotic resistance.
