EPA Confirms Products as Efficacious Hospital Disinfectants

Hype-Wipe Bleach towelettes and Bleach-Rite Disinfecting Spray have received the “Agency Approved Efficacy” designation from the U.S. EPA. The EPA’s Antimicrobial Testing Program (ATP) has completed testing the majority of hospital disinfectants and tuberculocide products at its laboratories. In its March 11, 2014 ATP report, the EPA placed registered disinfectants into three categories:

• “Agency Confirmed Efficacy” which includes products that passed testing by the Agency’s lab and are confirmed as efficacious hospital disinfectants.

• “Agency Taking Action” which includes products under EPA deliberation, including undergoing testing or review, or taking regulatory or enforcement action.

• “No Post Market Testing by EPA” which includes products labeled for use in dialysis facilities, newly registered products that have not yet undergone post- market testing and registered products that were not in production at time of collection.

The link to the results of the EPA’s Antimicrobial Testing Program is: http://www.epa.gov/oppad001/atp-product-list.pdf.

Hype-Wipe Bleach towelettes and Bleach-Rite Spray are ready-to-use, EPA registered hospital-grade disinfectants containing a 1:10 dilution of bleach and are stabilized for an extended shelf life. The products are approved for claims against C. Difficile Spores, tuberculosis (TB), acinetobacter baumannii, E-coli ESBL, Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP), Hepatitis A+B+C, Norovirus, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-resistant enterococcus faecium (VRE), Influenza A (H1N1), and numerous additional organisms.
