As you know, Pointers Institute is a professional body that represents those involved in solving problems related to infections, and those who advocate the best practice with their business.  We also act for practitioners who are responsible for infection, prevention, detection and control within the key industries of healthcare, food production, and retailing and pharmaceutical. One of those companies that solve problems related to infection is our oldest member, Qube Systems Retail.

Since 1975 it has been known that flushing a lavatory causes the spread of infection. Professor Charles Gerba from the University of Arizona published a scientific paper proving that pathogens included C.Diff, Norovirus, Campylobacter, E Coli, Salmonella, Shigella and many other harmful bacteria can be spread in this way.

Over the last seven years, Qube Systems have developed a technical solution to solve this problem. Combined with several other innovations in the area of prevention, detection and control of infection we have established a new high level of best practice in this crucial area within the health care, pharmaceutical and food sectors.
