CorrMed: specialists in infection control equipment
Medical Bags, Vaccine Bags & Infection Prevention Expertise
Drawing on our founder’s extensive experience delivering innovation into the infection control industry, CorrMed is a UK business supplying infection prevention safety products, alongside quality designed medical and vaccine bags with infection prevention principals.
Launched in 2017, we design and manufacture our own range of market-leading quality equipment bags, whilst also working with carefully-selected specialist providers to bring new infection control innovations to the UK.
CorrMed is headed up by Katie Houghton, an experienced business leader. Before launching CorrMed, Katie was the founder and Managing Director ICNet International, supplying infection surveillance technology across the globe. She brings this experience to CorrMed to ensure that all the products we manufacture and distribute are market-leading in infection control and prevention.
Katie is supported by a team of experts with experience in the field, most notably Brian Arnott who is the designer of our high quality medical and vaccine bags. Brian has more than 40 years’ experience in bag design and manufacture, working for leading brands around the world, before moving his expertise to CorrMed to develop our own brand range of products, along with our bespoke bag design service.
Katie is also joined by Fiona Gardner who for many years worked with Katie at ICNet International, leading the marketing division and supporting both sales and installation teams within the UK.
What CorrMed Can Do For You
Medical & Vaccine Bags
Our range of UK medical bags has been developed with extensive input from and testing by UK medical emergency teams, to specifically make them durable, fit-for-purpose, relevant in their usage, and overall the best bags available on the market.
It is this approach that makes them NHS-approved, and saw them being used in NHS Nightingale during the pandemic. They are manufactured by a specialist medical equipment provider, and both CorrMed and our manufacturer are ISO9001certified, demonstrating our commitment to quality production.
Everything that we design and use helps minimise the spread of infection, including wipe-clean and anti-bacterial materials, velcro-free designs, and heavy-duty components.
Our Porta Thermal Cold Chain Vaccine bag range utilises specialist design to maximise the time the contents remain in cold chain (2-8C) without additional refrigeration.
They have been independently tested to ensure that they exceed Public Health England and equivalent international standards, and manufactured to last. Several of our designs have been used during the UK and Australian community vaccine programme for the Covid-19 pandemic, taking vital vaccinations to some of the most vulnerable in the country.
For those interested in a high-quality bag design, specifically suited to your own needs, then ask our team about our bespoke bag design and manufacturing service.
Sourcing a solution that makes a meaningful difference to the spread of infection and reduces overall infection rate and absenteeism, led CorrMed to become the leading international distributor for AIRsteril.
AIRsteril air purification units employ six different forms of infection control technologies to eliminate bacteria, viruses, spores, allergens, particulates, volatile organic compounds, and other pathogens from the air and on surfaces.
Designed for use at home, in the office, and almost any enclosed or high footfall environment, AIRsteril has been independently tested by Leeds University, and found to be effective in as little as 60 minutes, including on strains of coronavirus.
It was also installed in an NHS call centre, and delivered a 54% drop in absenteeism through common illness.
Blue Mirror AI
One of the leading causes of infection spread in hospitals is improper donning and doffing of PPE equipment by staff and visitors.
CorrMed is proud to be the UK distributor for Blue Mirror AI, a virtual PPE buddy which guides you through the process, corrects any errors, and encourages maximum protection always for hospital staff, patients and visitors.
Using AI technology in a mobile app, loaded onto a tablet, this interactive ‘digital mirror’ is the latest line of defence in infection spread.
Distributors & Suppliers
We are always interested to explore new partnerships where we can work together.
If you feel your product or service might meet our infection prevention principles, then please do get in touch. We can undertake market research, product evaluation and even add the products to our portfolio if this feels the right thing to do.
Equally, for businesses who are seeking to expand their product offerings to community and emergency medics, vaccination teams and pharmacists, then maybe acting as a local distributor for our range of medical and cold chain bags might be an option for you.
