Disposable Shower Head Filter (Reorder Code: AQF4, AQF42) – 31 Day Use
The Pall-Aquasafe Disposable Shower Head Filter (Reorder Code: AQF4, AQF42) provides filtered water for topical applications such as wound care*, personal hygiene, for consumption and the preparation of cold drinks and food*, and for rinsing of medical instruments for up to 31 days. The double layer sterilising grade Supor® membrane is rated and validated at 0.2 μm1,2 and provides protection to patients and vulnerable users by acting as a barrier to waterborne particulates and pathogens such as Legionella spp. and Pseudomonasspp.
To minimise the risk of inadvertent cross-contamination and retrograde contamination, the filter housing material utilises silver technology as an enhanced, non-leaching bacteriostatic additive.* Where local practices and regulations allow.
