The economic damage caused by nosocomial infections is enormous: in Russia this figure is a conservative estimate may reach 15 bln. rubles per year. Prevention of nosocomial infections today are among the priorities of the development of public health and scientific research. Hospital-acquired infections are caused by microorganisms persisting in hospital rooms. It has frequent contact with antibiotics and, as a consequence of acquiring resistance to them.

One way to solve the problem of nosocomial infections is the development of high-tech medicine, system of biological protection and at the same time - innovative systems for decontamination using disinfectant solutions, modern equipment for sterilization and disinfection.
