Development of Colour-Changing Indicator Label for Healthcare Applications

Lunanos Inc. and Ryerson University's School of Graphic Communications Management are seeking to collaborate on a six-month project to develop an innovative colour-changing indicator label that will be used in healthcare facilities to track the cleaning of various equipment and surfaces to reduce the frequency of healthcare-associated infections (HAI). In Canada, 1 in 10 patients admitted to a hospital picks up an infection and it is estimated that 30-50% of these cases are preventable through better infection prevention and control. In this project, Lunanos will be able to access Ryerson University's School of Graphic Communications Management's unique combination of expertise, experience, and equipment in modern printing, manufacturing, and post-processing methods in order to scale-up their production to produce labels with consistent characteristics needed for a planned field testing project.
