In addition to the assessment of medical devices in accordance with the requirements of the Medical Devices Regulation, we also offer other health-related services. These include, for example, tests for harmful substances in textiles and leather articles, proof of the UV protection effect of clothing and shading textiles as well as tests for compliance with hygienic requirements for textiles and surfaces.

Applied hygiene

Whether it is general occupational hygiene, hygiene management, drinking water analyses or the investigation of the antimicrobial effectiveness - hygiene inspections by Hohenstein are a matter of cleanliness. In addition, we also officially monitor the hygiene in laundry operations of the German Certification Association for Professional Textile Services.

Textile UV protection

Hohenstein tests garments and shading textiles for their UV protection factor, based on international standards such as UV STANDARD 801, the Australian-New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS 4399), the European Standard (DIN EN 13758-1) or the American Standard (AATCC TM 183).

Testing for harmful substances

Hohenstein tests textiles and leather products for harmful substances to ensure legal compliance and observance of international standards such as STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® or other, customer-specific restricted substances lists (RSL).
