Meet the Infection Prevention team in 3M China. They made a simple visit to a customer and came away with creative solutions for a whole new product line.
Vivian Xie and her teammates were visiting customers in the sterile-supply units of hospitals when they spotted something. The 3M specialists noticed that instruments, like surgical scissors and trays, were cleaned with regular detergent.
They had an “aha” moment. 3M already provided sterilization and testing solutions – so they grabbed the opportunity to create cleaning solutions, too. The new cleaning line has been a big success in China and has expanded to other countries in Asia.
