Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes provide a single, universal product to disinfect and clean surfaces, equipment and hands. Containing a unique, patented formula; they can be used as a disinfectant, detergent and hand wipe - replacing the need for different types of wipes and surface cleaners.


 
Proven to kill at least 99.999% of germs within 1 minute - tested in accordance with European standards EN1276 & EN12054, this revolutionary formula contains 6 different active biocides, a chelating agent, a surfactant, and a moisturiser. Each active biocide acts with a different mechanism of action and so reduces the risk of germs developing resistance.



Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes were the first on the UK market to incorporate detergent and disinfectant properties into one wipe. Allowing the user to clean and sanitise in one easy step, they can be used on surfaces, equipment and hands - allowing standardisation of wipe usage by having one universal wipe for all applications. They replace the need to purchase seperate detergent and disinfectant wipes, which in turn stops confusion at the ward level as well as saving time and money.

HOW TO USE


Clinell Universal Wipes - How to Use

1. Why is the product referred to as a Universal Wipe?


 


This is because the wipe functions as a disinfectant and detergent wipe simultaneously and can be used on all surfaces, all ward based equipment and on hands.


 


2. Why is it important to clean in addition to disinfecting?


 


Dirt creates a barrier between the surface and the disinfectant on the wipe which can prevent the surface from being disinfected. Our wipes are designed to remove the dirt and disinfect at the same time. Many hospitals currently purchase detergent and disinfectant wipes as 2 seperate products and Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes will perform both jobs at the same time.


 


3. What are the active ingredients in the Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipe?


 


The formulation in Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes is patented antimicrobial solution developed by medical teams and microbiologists.


 


It contains 6 different active biocides, including 2 quaternary ammonium compounds, and these are designed to work synergistically together. This means that the effectiveness of the biocides is increased by many multiples when working in tandem together. This ensures a wide antimicrobial activity and a high kill count with this wipe.


 


In addition the wipe contains surfactant to act as a detergent, glycol for a residual effect as well as a moisturising effect on skin and chelating agents.


 


4. Does using disinfectants increase the chance of resistance occuring with germs?


 


Because there are 6 different biocides and each functions to kill germs by using a different mechanism of action there is no risk to resistance occuring over long term use.


 


5. What does the term "contact time" mean?


 


This is the time required for the resistance to act on germsand is basically how long it takes for the disinfectant to work. The contact time varies greatly with different germs but for MRSA it is 10 seconds.


 


6. Why is the kill count important to know?


 


Apart from how fast it takes a disinfectant to work i.e. contact time, it is also important to determine what happens when the contact time is reached and how much particular germ has been killed. It wouldn't be much use to have a fast contact time but a low kill count that allowed the majority of the micro-organisms to still be active.


 


This reduction in germs or kill count is express in a log form and basicaly the log number is the number of nines that is expressed in a percentage reduction. For example, 2 log reduction is 99%, 4 log reduction is 99.99% and so on.


 


Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes have demonstrated a 5 log kill count within a minute (99.999%) of bacteria, viruses and fungi.


 


7. Does the mechanical action of the wipe play an important part in the disinfection process?


 


The mechanical action of the wipe enhances the level of disinfection by removing soil and bioburden to allow the disinfectant to reach the surface directly. The soil and bioburden in the wipe are then killed by the disinfectant that remains on the wipe.


 


8. Does the wipe retain some of the disinfectant?


 


Generally wipe materials contain certain molecules that can hold and lock the wipe formulation into the wipe and prevent release. In other words the disinfectant liquid that is put into a wipe is not the same as when extracted off a wipe. Therefor testing must be done on the run off from the wipe rather then the formulation itself.


 


9. What can you use the Universal Wipes on?


 


The wipe is designed to be safe to use on all surfaces and will not damage rubbers, plastics or metals. Alcohol based wipes tend to damage materials after prolonged use but this will not occur with Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes. It can also be used on all non-invasive equipment as well as hands.


 


10. What products do this wipe relace?


 


This wipe will replace all detergent and disinfectant wipes and by doing so sill help standardise wipe usage in a hospital. This will save time and money and help prevent confusion as regards what type of wipe is required. It will also replace hand wipes, medical device wipes (non-invasive medical devices) and surface cleaners.


 


11. What germs does the Universal Wipe kill?


 


In addition to knowing the contact time and kill count it is very important to know what germs the formulation released from the wipe is active against. The testing behind Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes is very extensive and has been conducted at many UK University Accredited Laboratories. The wipes have been shown to be active against all germ groups except for spores.


 


This includes all gram positive and gram negative bacteria, all enveloped and non-enveloped viruses, fungi, protozoans, mycobacterium - the kill count and contact time will vary depending on which particular organism is being targeted.


 


12. Where was the testing conducted for this wipe?


 


Many tests have been conducted on this wipe including EN tests such as EN1276, prEN12054 and EN1500. In addition, the wipes have also been tested specifically against certain pathogens. The wipes have been dermatologically tested and have also been tested against a wide variety of materials showing their safety as well.


 


The tests have been conducted at various UK University Laboratories or institutions all of who are accredited.
