The Japanese hygiene products specialist SARAYA has been in business for half a century. Today, its products are still at the cuting edge. At MEDICA the firm is presenting the revised version of model UD 1000 dispenser – launched in 2005, that model has been sold 150,000 times.  
The new battery-operated dispenser system has a new colour design, anthracite tray and white dispenser case and, most importantly, is equipped with touchless technology. Infrared sensors recognise an approaching hand and release the precise volume of disinfectant spray. Thus a constantly high disinfection quality is guaranteed, and the cost for the disinfectant is optimally controlled, the manufacturer explains. ‘The touch necessary in manual dispenser systems is avoided, which absolutely eliminates the transmission of nosocomial germs to the dispenser case.’
Saraya’s ‘one-stop solutions’ include the UD 1000 dispenser, customised hand and skin disinfectants, as well as the touchless soap dispenser UD 2200 which has suitable liquid soaps, and the manual soap dispenser MD 201 for foam soaps.
