A Simple Solution to a Simple Problem? 

Back in the 1840’s Doctors Wendell-Holmes and Semmelweis, finally proved that infection and disease were being spread by the unwashed hands of medical colleagues, and simply washing hands well between patients visits, reduced the risks of cross infection dramatically. 


Ignaz Semmelweis

(1 July 1818 – 13 August 1865)

  Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. 

(August 29, 1809 – October 7, 1894)


Yet, here we are at the turn of the twenty first century and touch-transferred infections still present a major health problem throughout the world.

The undisputable conclusion they arrived at, is that poorly washed hands are as much a touch-contamination risk as unwashed hands.  Thankfully this is one problem easily solved using the WASH & GLOW  Hand Wash Training System.

Using our WASH & GLOW training system is simple, yet effective. The UV particles in our hand wash gel medium symbolise bacteria – by applying a thin layer of a medium onto the hands and inspecting them before and after washing under a UV Checkpoint Lamp, any areas not thoroughly cleaned will be highlighted with our distinctive bright green glow. This method of revealing poor hand washing technique can help you to achieve and maintain high hand hygiene standards throughout your organisation. UV particle mediums are now available for use on work surfaces and equipment.

From the novelty and fun of first-time hand wash training, to the assurance of daily hand wash self-tests, there is now a simple, effective and affordable WASH & GLOW solution, to help raise and maintain hand hygiene standards, throughout the organisation.



The Importance of Effective Hand Hygiene

When performed correctly, hand washing is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. Good hand washing technique is easy to learn and can significantly reduce the spread of infectious diseases among both children and adults.


Are these hands clean?

             Did you know?

  • We have between 2 and 10 million bacteria between fingertip and elbow

  • Damp hands spread 1,000 times more germs than dry hands

  • The number of germs on your fingertips doubles after you use the toilet

  • Germs can stay alive on hands for up to three hours

  • Millions of germs hide under watches and bracelets and there could be as many germs under your ring as there are people in Europe.

Around 20% of women and 40% of men don't wash their hands after using a public loo!

90% of germs on hands are found under the nails!

The number of bacteria can double in 20 minutes and after one day without hand washing; a single bacterium can multiply 2 billion, trillion times!







Invisible SMART UV Technology at Work


At the heart of every UV GERM product is the magic active ingredient, Invisible UV SMART Particles; amazing microscopic germ-like particles, which under normal lighting conditions are  invisible to the eye yet are completely safe and non-toxic .

However when exposed to a UV Black light (such as the Checkpoint Examination Lamp) they will fluoresce brightly and clearly, to indicate the scope of 'contamination' that has occurred, and to reveal the potential bacteria that remains after washing (even on the towel!)

UV GERM SMART UV particles glow Bright Green, for a more realistic simulation experience and one which provides a far more distinctive and pleasing effect under Black ight.

UV GERM - Just like the Real Thing!

Microscopic UV GERM Simulation Particles lodge in the many creases and crevices of the skin as microbes would do, and only effective hand-washing will remove them.

A New range of Surface Hygiene Monitoring & Compliance Tools designed to safely and hygienically check surfaces are being cleaned in accordance with directives. A non-toxic, invisible alcohol-based coating which only becomes visible under Ultraviolet light, is simply marked or sprayed or smeared on to the surface to be tested. 

These discreet invisible marks are easily removed through normal cleaning (even a damp cloth) so if traces still remain after cleaning, it would indicate that the surface has not been cleaned effectively.
