Wireless temperature monitoring specialist Monika has confirmed a multi-year extension with BioCote, a leading supplier of antimicrobial solutions.
Having worked alongside BioCote for the past three years, all of Monika’s current hardware including its Smart Readers, Hand Probes and Core Sensors, feature the very latest coating to protect against bacteria and mould.
Created using a unique formulation of silver-ions, zinc, copper and organic active ingredients, the coating allows products to be more hygienic, protected against stains, odours and material degradation, safer to use and easier to clean. The pioneering coating binds with any potentially harmful microbes that come into contact with the surface and irreparably damage them to prevent harmful bacterial growth.
Integrated during the manufacturing process, Monika introduced the use of the BioCote formula to add an additional level of protection for operators using the company’s range of hand-held readers, probes and sensors that come into regular contact with food items.
This extension to the agreement between the two market leading businesses reaffirms the importance of outstanding hygiene and food safety within a catering environment.
Simon Frost, managing director of Monika, said: “We’ve worked closely with BioCote the past few years and as such are delighted to be able to announce that all of our equipment will feature this state-of-the-art antimicrobial coating, designed to guarantee superior hygiene for a further three years.
“As the market leader in the field, BioCote continue to demonstrate a clear commitment to pushing boundaries in the pursuit for quality and consistency in hygiene. This, combined with Monika’s experience in wireless monitoring and total food safety systems, ensures we are able to offer our customers the very best solution for their businesses.”
The Monika PathFinder and TaskMinder systems complete with the BioCote technology is optimised for use in all types of independent, franchise or group foodservice operators, schools, universities and businesses and sites where critical care is given including hospitals and care homes.
