Point of use Tap Filters for Protection against Legionella

Legionella is a source of danger if water, vapours or aerosols are inhaled and reach the lungs through taps, showers, while washing dishes, or even during teeth brushing.

Point-of-use filters provide immediate protection against Legionella and remove 99.99% of Legionella from the tap.

Water supply systems are a major source of nosocomial infections. Point of use membrane filters installed directly at the water outlet are an established method of protecting patients against waterborne bacteria.

In medical facilities, point-of-use bacterial filters are used either a) reactively, as an immediate solution in the event of contamination with pathogens such as Legionella or pseudomonas or b) proactively, to deliver consistent protection to high-risk patients from the ever present risk of infection.

Sanitary Water Point-of-Use Filters


The Baclyse series are CE-marked medical devices. These are disposable, point-of-use, hollow fibre membrane water filters with a proven retention efficiency of 7 Log steps for Brevundimonas diminuta. This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtered water.

Thus, all waterborne bacteria such as pseudomonas and legionella are blocked by these tap filters. The hygienic design and use of bacteriostatic material in the filter outlet prevents retrograde contamination. The filter is designed to deliver a consistent bacteriological performance at the design flow rate for the up to 2-months dependent on water quality.

On expiry of the operating time, the used filter can be easily changed via the quick release coupling and then disposed of responsibly. The individual barcode on each filter supports traceability and documentation processes within hospitals hygiene routines.
