Disinfecting Wipes - Practical Solution for Quick Disinfection
Ready-made disinfectant wipes are suited for quick, hygienic disinfection of medical equipment and medical surfaces. Depending on the used disinfectant, the disinfecting wipes can be used on different materials and are effective against different viruses and microorganisms.
Surface Disinfectant Wipes - Different Efficacy Spectra
The efficacy spectrum of most medical wipes includes bactericidal, yeasticidal and limited virucidal effects. Especially in hygienically sensitive environments, one should put an emphasis on products with a virucidal effect. The mikrozid universal wipes premium, for example, have an effect against bacteria, yeasts, enveloped viruses and non-enveloped viruses. As a result, they are ideal for cleaning and disinfecting operating tables and surgical instruments. Of course, they can also be used in other healthcare sectors, e.g. to disinfect patient beds, or to clean and disinfect keyboards and monitors.
In surgeries, where one should expect noroviruses and rotaviruses, the Bacillol 30 Tissues from Hartmann are particularly suitable. The alcoholic wipes offer an antimicrobial spectrum with effectiveness against fungi, bacteria, enveloped and non-enveloped viruses (like noro- and rotaviruses). Additionally, the ready-to-use sanitising wipes are compatible with many materials thanks to their low alcohol content. Depending on the work safety requirements, they can even be used without gloves.
For a broader efficacy spectrum including sporicidal effects, we offer the Kohrsolin extra Tissues from Bode. The aldehyde containing wipes are effective against viruses, bacteria and spores, including the spores from Clostridium difficile.
Surface Disinfectant Wipes - for Different Surfaces
In addition to the activity spectrum, the material of the medical products and the size of the medical surface should be taken into account when using the disinfecting wipes.
As a result, the Cleanisept Wipes Tissues are suitable for disinfecting alcohol-sensitive surfaces. The wipes are quaternary ammonium cation-based, are alcohol-free and can be used for cleaning transducer heads and probes without mucosal contact.
For quick disinfection of larger surfaces, our shop offers extra large wipes, like the Mikrozid AF Jumbo alcohol wipes. The ready-for-use, 20 x 27 cm large wipes come in handy dispenser tubes of 200. For alcohol-sensitive surfaces, we offer the mikrozid universal wipes premium XL. The 25 x 25 cm large wipes can even be used for disinfecting displays and tablets thanks to their low alcohol content.
For disinfecting smaller surfaces, one can use the handy Descoderm Pads. They are suitable for disinfecting medical supplies, but also for disinfecting the skin e.g. prior to injections. The alcoholic wipes are effective against bacteria, yeasts and enveloped viruses.
Disinfecting Wipes for Mobile Use
In most cases, disinfectant wipes are used for cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces in medical practices and hospitals. However, many of these sanitising wipes are ideal for exterior use, e.g. for quick disinfection during doctor's visits.
The Sterillium Disinfectant Wipes are particularly suitable for mobile use, as they can both be used as surface sanitising wipes and for hand and skin disinfection. Their individual packaging even protects the non-woven alcoholic wipes from drying out.
Surface Disinfecting Wipes as Fleece Tissue Rolls
Dry wipes are not immediately ready for use, they need to be soaked in a disinfectant first. The X-Wipes from Bode, for example, have a size of 20 x 38 cm, are very absorbent and tear resistant. For different dispensers and packs, the X-Wipes are available as rolls of 30 or 90 non-woven tissues.
In addition to dry fleece surface wipes, that have to be doused in cleaner or disinfectant first, we also offer fleece tissue rolls that have already been premoistened. They are immediately ready to use and can be used for quick disinfection of different surfaces and security sectors, depending on the used disinfectant. The schülke wipes Safe & Easy Bagless System, is ideal for sectors, where the risk of infection for patients and medical personnel is particularly elevated. They are available in handy buckets with a transparent lid for fill level control.
