In the last couple of months we have been as busy as ever, exhibiting at another 3 events to try and introduce our products to as many new faces as possible.

In April we were in Vienna (Austria) for ECCMID and in June we went to both Johannesburg (South Africa) for Africa Health and Geneva (Switzerland) for ICPIC. All events were very well attended and proved to be a great success. It was so good to see so many of you there, and we’d like to thank you for taking the time to visit us!

GAMA Healthcare Disinfectant Compatibility Statement

July 2017

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) recently published a Medical Devices Safety Update (vol. 5, no. 3, May 2017) which contained an article entitled ‘Disinfectants and detergents can damage medical equipment plastics’. GAMA Healthcare are aware that this has caused a lot of concern and confusion in the Australian marketplace.

We welcome the publication of the following clarifications to the alert which is now available to view on the TGA website:

i. Certain disinfectant wipes and detergents can damage medical devices if the cleaning agent is incompatible with the device’s plastic surfaces*.
*The TGA considers cleaning agents that contain levels of benzalkonium chloride below 5-10% are safe to use on medical devices. Disinfectants generally use about 0.5% benzalkonium chloride, which is considered noncorrosive at these levels.

ii. Detergent wipes used by the hospital to clean the pumps contained the ingredient ‘benzalkonium chloride’. This is classed as a quaternary ammonium compound which is a corrosive ingredient and therefore should not be used**.
** Benzalkonium chloride is unsafe at a concentration above 10% and therefore should not be used without being diluted.

iii. When cleaning medical devices the TGA recommends that health facilities:
• Review all decontamination processes that use a disinfectant wipe or detergent containing quaternary ammonium compounds on a plastic surface***.
*** Particularly if the surface is made of polycarbonate material.

GAMA Healthcare Ltd. would like to confirm to all our customers that Clinell Universal Wipes contain benzalkonium chloride at a concentration of less than 0.5% and therefore per the TGA clarification are considered non-corrosive at this level.

We have also been advised that the wording of the alert specifically referencing detergent wipes has been interpreted to mean neutral detergent wipes. GAMA Healthcare would like to confirm Clinell Detergent wipes do not contain benzalkonium chloride.

We fully support the TGA statement that equipment manufacturers’ cleaning recommendations should be followed.

GAMA Healthcare continues to work with equipment manufacturers on material compatibility and welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on any items which require disinfection and are not currently listed on our approved equipment list.

For guidance of on using disinfectant wipes, please download the Instructions For Use below.

Track-200

The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, measured over their latest two years of available accounts.

This is the 8th year of The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, the league table of Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales. The International Track 200 ranks the 200 mid-market companies (25m+ total sales) based on their growth in international sales over the last two years of available data; whereas our SME Export Track 100 ranks companies with sales of less than 25m. Despite the backdrop of volatile international markets and the prospect of the UK leaving the EU, this year’s league table findings indicate the breadth of UK companies still making remarkable headway overseas.

GAMA Healthcare is delighted to make its debut entry this year at number 98 with a 41.91% increase in international sales over the last 2 years.
