Formed in 2004, GAMA Healthcare is a world-leading developer of infection prevention solutions—focusing on continual innovation. Founded by two medical doctors, our ethos is to make it easy for healthcare professionals to always do the right thing.

Our products—marketed under the brands Clinell, Carell and Cleanall—are used by hospitals in Australia and worldwide. We are the largest supplier of wet and dry wipes in the UK, with at least one of our products used in every National Health Service hospital. We export to over 60 countries worldwide, with the list continuing to grow.

This year, GAMA Healthcare acquired the Clinell division of AMCLA—our longstanding distributor in Australia—and added their headquarters in Mornington, Victoria to make six offices in cities across three continents. We set out to invest heavily in the business, to provide better aftersales service and clinical support. Since May, we have established an Australian Clinical team to support healthcare practitioners on the frontline. We’re working towards our commitment to double the number of staff working at AMCLA. We’re hiring new area managers to help healthcare organisations find evidence-based infection prevention solutions that give them the greatest efficacy against healthcare-associated infections. Our new clinical team is growing to include clinical nurse trainers: available to provide bespoke, ground-level training to help local ICPNs support best-practice.

We have an active Research and Development Department who are permanently engaged in discovering and developing new innovative products and improving on our existing ones. We continually discover novel, effective solutions and ensure that GAMA healthcare remains at the forefront of healthcare innovation.

Since 2007, AMCLA—a family owned specialist import and distribution company—have brought you world-class healthcare solutions. We’re building on that foundation to ensure GAMA Healthcare Australia provides the most effective products, the most robust efficacy data and the most supportive aftersales service.

Through industry-first technology in air, surface and skin disinfection, the Surgical Specialties infection prevention portfolio enables the comprehensive reduction and monitoring of viral and bacterial contamination in surgical, hospital and commercial environments.

Join us during ACIPC for a demonstration of Aerobiotix Illuvia® In-Room HEPA and UV Air Treatment, technology that enables the validated elimination of bacteria, viruses and spores. Despite practices to clean hands, surfaces, and air through ventilation systems and HEPA filtration, these measures are not sufficient to remove airborne viable particles that can lead to viruses and infection. Used in hospital and commercial environments, this new system goes beyond filtering and disinfecting the air to remove 100 percent of viruses, 99.97 percent of bacteria, and 99.91 percent of spores from occupied areas.

We welcome you to visit to discuss THOR™ UV System, the latest constant wave UV-C surface and air disinfection technology designed specifically for areas of the hospital and healthcare environment. THOR™ incorporates unique patented design features that reduce shadowing. Log 6 reduction ( 99.9999%) bacterial kill achieved in minutes.

We are excited to introduce Q Shield™ from Q Biotechnologies, a family of antimicrobial products ( hand sanitisers, hard surface sprays and wipes and fog) that offer antimicrobial protection to skin, glass, ceramics and metal. Q Biotechnologies also enables real time monitoring of viable air particles and surface contamination.
