VAUGHAN, Ontario, Aug. 23, 2016 /CNW/ -- PDI, a leader in infection prevention products and solutions, today announced the launch of its Sani-Cloth Bleach Germicidal Disposable Wipe in Canada. The product is ideal for disinfecting high-risk areas and outbreak situations endemic with Clostridium Difficile (C. diff) spores and Norovirus.
A DIN-registered disinfectant, Sani-Cloth Bleach wipes are a stabilized 1:10 dilution of sodium hypochlorite proven effective against 50 microorganisms, including C. diff, Norovirus and 14 multi-drug resistant organisms. With an overall contact time of four minutes, it is designed to quickly kill the most clinically relevant pathogens in healthcare. Additionally, Sani-Cloth Bleach wipes are compatible with a broad range of surfaces and equipment in the healthcare environment.
"According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, an estimated 1 in 12 adults and 1 in 10 children admitted to a Canadian hospital will develop a hospital-acquired infection," said Matt Gattuso, President, PDI Infection Prevention. "Additionally, C. diff affected more than 3,000 patients in 2011, resulting in 88 deaths. We're proud to offer Sani-Cloth Bleach wipes as a long-time trusted solution to battle this aggressive organism and address the growing problem in healthcare facilities."
Also available is the convenient and versatile 3-in-1 locking bracket for Sani-Cloth canisters, which promotes usage and compliance to help reduce cross-contamination and infection in any setting.
