It is non-irritating to skin and eyes, requires no personal protective equipment and is compatible with most common health care surfaces and equipment.

The wipes are available in a variety of sizes. The 11”x12” wipes are ideal for larger area cleaning and disinfection in operating rooms, emergency departments and patient rooms.

The wipes improve compliance by staying wet on surfaces for the required label contact time, which ensures disinfection while streamlining the process.”
