Ultra-quick drying, smear-free disinfection wipes. High-quality 70% isopropyl alcohol kills 99.999% of pathogens on surfaces and non-invasive medical devices.
Pharmaceutical grade isopropyl alcohol evaporates quickly so wipes leave no residue or smear, yet kill 99.999% of pathogens including MRSA, E. coli, Pseudomonas and Enterococcus. Wipes contain 25gsm non-woven spun bond, which is wetter and thicker than competing alcohol wipes, meaning fewer are needed to clean the same area, saving time and money.

In the AJIC special issue on ‘Disinfection, sterilization, and antisepsis’, there is a helpful State-of-the-Science mini-review on the importance of biofilms in medical device reprocessing and healthcare surface disinfection.
The next article in the AJIC special issue on ‘Disinfection, sterilization, and antisepsis’ is a mini-review on whether there is a relationship between biocide use and antimicrobial resistance. Reassuringly, despite the widespread use of biocides in healthcare settings (and in consumer markets), acquired resistance has rarely been reported.
The American Journal of Infection Control has recently published a must-read special issue titled: ‘Disinfection, sterilization, and antisepsis: Principles, practices, current issues, new research, and new technologies.’
