Available from the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC), the HLAC Laundry Process Monitoring ToolKit™ is vastly different in scale from anything else currently available in the industry.

It employs a proprietary extraction technique designed to recover the most accurate representation of bioburden load on laundry media.

It comes with everything a laundry needs to perform effective, consistent and reliable process monitoring. It measures the number of microorganisms found in a laundry on hard surfaces, in the air, on linen, in the water and on employee hands.

With this data in hand, the laundry may adjust accordingly the effectiveness of its overall plant hygiene, wash and hand-hygiene processes. This includes:

  • General comparative data for evaluating before and after conditions of cleaning processes

  • The effects of process modifications and/or system improvements

  • Trending data over time (e.g., reasons for process variability) for determining process consistency and identifying opportunities for improvements.

identifies microorganisms – not in increments but – by leaps and bounds.

It does for microorganism identification what the Hubble Telescope does for astronomy. Everything else that is currently available is like trying to look at the stars through a pair of opera glasses.”
