Infection Prevention Innovation From Diversey
Innovations from Diversey continue to extend its total infection prevention solutions offer for healthcare facilities.
Diversey’s disinfection products containing patented Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP) offer an effective alternative to formulations with chlorine compounds as the active ingredient. These disinfectants – tested to the latest EN standards - are highly effective against a wide range of viruses, spores, yeasts, and fungi found in healthcare settings, including Clostridium difficile (C. diff), MRSA, Norovirus, E. coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
AHP is a patented blend of commonly used, safe ingredients that when combined with low levels of hydrogen peroxide dramatically increase its germicidal potency and cleaning performance. The active ingredient, hydrogen peroxide, degrades into environmentally friendly water and oxygen shortly after use.
Oxivir Excel is a fast-acting cleaner-disinfectant that can replace general surface cleaning products for tasks. Effective against viruses in just 30 seconds, it provides affordable ongoing infection protection. Oxivir Sporicide is a ready to use one step hospital grade, cleaner disinfectant with excellent response against hard to kill pathogens such as C. diff, Bacillus subtilis and other multiple drug resistant organisms (MDROs).
Facilities that prefer chlorine-based disinfection can choose Diversey's Titan range of tablets, powders and ready-to-use products. The range offers powerful disinfection against a wide range of infections. By offering highly effective chlorine and AHP-based disinfectants Diversey uniquely enables facilities to choose the simplest and most effective product for their specific requirement.
The new IntelliCare hand care system helps facilities control critical hand care moments for improved infection prevention and hand hygiene compliance. The IntelliCare hybrid dispenser seamlessly switches from touchless to manual mode if the battery runs down to maintain soap or foam availability. It can be used with a variety of globally-trusted hand care formulations in the Soft Care and SURE ranges.
Vericlean is an evidence-based cleaning and disinfection validation programme will improve the thoroughness of cleaning and disinfection of high touch environmental surfaces.
CleanPatch is a CE-registered Class 1 medical device for repairing damaged hospital mattresses to an intact and hygienic state. It reduces the risk of cross-contamination and extends the life of mattresses to minimise the need for expensive replacements.
The launch of Moonbeam3 and SKY7Xi adds powerful UVC light technology to Diversey’s infection prevention capabilities. UVC penetrates and destroys the cells of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and spores. This offers facilities a completely hands, chemical and fume-free way to implement safer high-performance disinfection.
Moonbeam3 delivers on-demand, broad area disinfection of high-touch surfaces in as little as 90 seconds. It is ideal for surfaces accidentally missed during regular cleaning and for frequently-touched, hard-to-clean surfaces and intricate equipment. SKY7Xi is designed to disinfect mobile devices including smart phones and tablets. Effective in one minute or less, it achieves up to a 5-log reduction in harmful pathogens including MRSA, VRE, MDR-Gram negative, Norovirus and C. diff spores. Both technologies are available in differing configurations and combine flexibility with low operating costs and minimal maintenance.
