Time for a change at Royal United Bath NHS Trust who up-grade to Chronos UVC HLD system
Royal United Bath NHS trust continue to improve their Ultrasound service by replacing their existing automated HLD systems with the Germitec’s Chronos UVC HLD system.
Ever since their first trial of the Chronos UVC HLD system, the team has been extremely impressed with its speed, simplicity and reliability as well as the support received from the Germitec UK team. The Chronos revolutionises practice by cleverly utilising UVC light to High level disinfect Ultrasound probes from as fast as 60 seconds.

Tracey Blacker (Operational Team Lead Ultrasound) stated that
“We are absolutely delighted to continue implementing best practice and protecting our patients with the latest technology. After using an alternative automated solution for the past 3 years, it is great that we now have an option that can support our fast-paced workflow and is environmentally friendly. Implementing these new systems will help save the trust over £200,000 over the next 5 years whilst allowing us to accommodate more patients in certain areas. These new systems have been welcomed very well with all our staff, across our main site and community centres, as they are user friendly and do not expose the team to any hazardous chemicals or heat.”
Pavan Pankhania (Germitec UK Country Manager) explained that
“We are thrilled to have worked with the Trust on this project and look forward to supporting them very closely going forward. We are very proud to be able to offer the trust significant cost savings whilst providing a product which supports the NHS’ Long term sustainability plan. Without exposing the staff to high temperatures or hazardous chemicals, the Chronos will enable the department to safety high level disinfect their probes without risk with complete peace of mind concerning safety, reproducibility and traceability.”
