The EPA has given PDI®, the Healthcare Division of Nice-Pak Products Inc, Orangeburg, NY, acceptance to reduce the overall contact time on its Super Sani-Cloth® Germicidal Disposable Wipe from 5 to 2 minutes. In addition to killing 18 microorganisms including Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Salmonella, the wipes now kill Rotavirus, Human Coronavirus, ESBL-producing E coli, and Burkholderia cepacia.
The latex-free wipes have a diamond-embossed texture, making them thick, heavy, and strong enough to remove bacteria from surfaces without tearing. According to Jean Fleming, RN, MPM, CIC, clinical director of infection prevention and education at PDI, “The premoistened, quaternary/alcohol-based wipes are suitable for a variety of hard, nonporous surfaces, including carts, counters, exam tables, computer keyboards, patient monitoring, and sensitive diagnostic equipment.”
Super Sani-Cloths contain 55% alcohol and kill TB and RSV in 1 minute; and HBV, HCV, HIV-1, MRSA, and VRE in 2 minutes. They have been proven effective against a total of 22 microorganisms.
Super Sani-Cloths come in 160-count and 65-count canisters with deep-well lids. The large 50-count packets and extra large individual packets fit into the Sani-Bracket®, a wall and mobile equipment mounting system.
