SafeTag is an innovative medical indicator that streamlines the decontamination process through a time-sensitive color-changing mechanism. With a focus on enhancing infection control and minimizing costly errors, SafeTag facilitates the decontamination of endoscopes, ensuring healthcare workers adhere to regulations and guidelines effectively, thus reducing the risk of patient infection.
The Current State of Infection Control
Healthcare associated infections are growing in incidence. New infections, including a growing number of more resistant strains of bacteria are prone to spreading. Hospitals and medical practices have had to intensify their infection control procedures to stave off risk to patients.
Within endoscopy, post procedural infections are almost 100x higher than expected. It was reported that on average 1 patient in every 1,000-endoscopy procedure will be affected by a post-procedural infection.
Why is SafeTag necessary?
This inventive solution simplifies the manual processes and helps mitigate the risk of biofilm formation, reducing risk of infection to patients.
How does SafeTag Work?
By changing color over a predetermined time, it ensures proper cleaning to reduce infection risk and eliminate costly errors.
Accurate timings in easy-to-use formats which fits your process.

Where should SafeTag be applied?
HangTag: Apply to the umbilical cord of the Endoscope
TrayTag: Applied to the transport tray or liner
TrackerTag: Applied directly to the liner or tray, while key information can be stored inside your existing records
