Amity is a speciality chemical manufacturer located in the United Kingdom and the USA with an excellent reputation for product innovation in the healthcare, food and industrial sectors. In recent years, Amity has focused on the development of alternative products purpose designed to overcome the environmental and safety restrictions which now confront the old ‘traditional’ products.
In 2005, Amity moved into the healthcare sector by developing several patented technologies in the area of High Level Disinfection (HLD) for instruments, surfaces & the environment. These proved to be so good they have re-written the rules for EN standards in contact time, efficacy, and how the products destroy and not just in-activate microbials. These initial products led to the development of the healthcare range.
The new range of CSSD detergents and enzymes offer superior cleaning power without damaging delicate instruments and devices. The formulation of these concentrated products allows less product to be used and ensures that cost savings are made.
Amity is accredited to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 (Medical Devices Directive). Amity’s High Level Disinfectants are CE Marked (CE 0120). Hence all of the claims have been audited and verified by independent microbiologists for the UK regulator MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) on behalf of the European Union.
With the marketing arm of idsMED, we promote and educate the clinical environment in order to challenge the traditional requirement and adopt the latest international standard.
