Rapid Review Panel awards Clinell Alcoholic 2% Chlorhexidine Wipes Category One Status
GAMA are the only company in the UK who have been awarded with the Department of Health’s ‘RRP’ Category One Status for our clinical proven Clinell Alcoholic 2% Chlorhexidine wipes.
The Government Health Protection Agency founded the RRP in 2004 to help prevent and lower the rate of Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAIs). It is run by an independent panel of leading UK infection control experts and judges the benefits of products at the request of The Department of Health.
Clinell Alcoholic 2% Chlorhexidine Wipes are disposable disinfectant wipes used for the disinfection of non-invasive medical devices such as venous and arterial catheters, peripheral cannulas, needleless connectors and blood culture bottle caps. They are pre-saturated with 70% isopropyl alcohol and 2% chlorhexidine gluconate, conforming to the current EPIC 3 guidance (IVAD30).
The wipes provide fast acting and long lasting antimicrobial action with excellent residual activity. They are proven to be effective at disinfecting central venous catheter hubs, sampling ports and reduce catheter related blood stream bacteraemias. Alcohol and chlorhexidine have been shown to be more effective than both 70% alcohol and 10% povidone-iodine for preventing central venous and arterial catheter related infections.
Clinell Alcoholic 2% Chlorhexidine Wipes are now supported directly by GAMA Healthcare, which means improved support and training. Contact us or a member of our sales team to discuss our great deals.
