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[1], 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.
