Incubators create ideal conditions for the growth of microbes and bacteria which can in turn be harmful to incubating eggs and can be the cause of embryonic death.
To reduce this risk Brinsea incorporate Polygiene Biomaster Antimicrobial Protection into our incubator cabinets during manufacture. Polygiene Biomaster Protection is embedded within the plastic itself which prevents the growth of harmful bacteria helping to provide the optimum environment for hatching.
Proven to quickly reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% Polygiene Biomaster Protection is an effective means of reducing the risk of cross infection from MRSA, E.coli, Campylobacter, Legionella, Salmonella and many other harmful species of bacteria.
Polygiene Biomaster helps to provide a more hygienic environment for your eggs during incubation. From January 2013 Polygiene Biomaster has been utilised as widely as technically as possible within our products - providing you with additional confidence in your hatch.
Benefits of Polygiene Biomaster:
Our products incorporating Polygiene Biomaster Protection have been tested to ISO 22196:2011 standards to prove its antimicrobial efficacy. Incubators and other products made with Biomaster still need cleaning thoroughly as the effect of Biomaster is at the plastic surface only.
Polygiene Biomaster has been applied to the following products*:
*Parts treated with Polygiene Biomaster are all the opaque incubator and brooder mouldings as these are the most likely areas where cross contamination might occur.
