Destroy SARS-CoV-2 in 30 seconds with Tristel Chlorine Dioxide
Why is effective medical device decontamination vital in the fight against SARS-CoV-2?
Since the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 there have been huge advances in our understanding of how the virus is spread. We have learnt that SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted via contact with contaminated surfaces. Therefore, medical devices that encounter mucous membranes of the head and neck are a transmission risk if not properly decontaminated.
Studies have shown that the virus can survive on surfaces for 4 – 7 days, highlighting the necessity of thorough cleaning and disinfection of medical devices.
In the absence of SARS-CoV-2 test availability, surrogate viruses have been used by the industry to demonstrate efficacy.
Laboratory testing is now available to assess disinfectant efficacy against real life pathogenic SARS-CoV-2.
