Ineffective standards of aseptic technique are a significant cause of healthcare acquired infection. The Association for Safe Aseptic Practice (ASAP) works to improve standards of aseptic technique in clinical practice. It oversees the ongoing development and dissemination of Aseptic Non Touch Technique (ANTT), a unique, standardized approach to aseptic practice that has been shown to support the reduction of healthcare acquired infection. As a result, ANTT has become the de facto national standard aseptic technique in England, Australia and Wales and is now used in over 30 countries and is rapidly expanding.
