Many disinfectants are unable to penetrate oils, fats and protein based materials and cannot disinfect effectively in areas where these are present. Biocleanse™ cuts through contaminants lifting them from surfaces and leaving a physically clean and disinfected surface in a single operation.
Biocleanse™ delivers effective cleaning with proven efficacy against a wide spectrum of pathogenic micro-organisms including bacteria, viruses, spores, moulds and fungi.
Widely used within the Pathology areas of the NHS, Biocleanse™ is available in Ready to Use, Wipe and Concentrate forms.
Biocleanse™ incorporates many innovative features including:
- Alcohol Free - Biocleanse™ is non flammable, not classified as hazardous and compatible with a wide range of surfaces including plastics, vinyl and rubbers.
- Low Odour - Biocleanse™ is virtually odourless and can be used in all areas within the surgery environment.
- Residual Activity - Independent tests on Biocleanse™ by the Health Protection Agency have proved that surfaces treated with Biocleanse™ retain their Biocidal activity for up to 28 days, unlike alcohol, chlorine and peroxide based chemicals. View the residual activity graph.
- Shelf Life - the active ingredient in Biocleanse™ is stable and does not degrade upon storage, unlike hypochlorite and peroxide based systems.
