Diversey Care Introduces New Oxivir Wipe Sizes in Canada
STURTEVANT, WISCONSIN – 2 April 2014 – Sealed Air’s Diversey Care Division today introduced two new Oxivir® Tb Wipe package formats to its leading Oxivir disinfectant line in Canada. Oxivir Tb Wipes can kill key healthcare-associated pathogens including Norovirus, MRSA, Acinetobacter and Klebsiella in just 60 seconds. The hydrogen peroxide-based disinfectant, powered by AHP® technology, is non-irritating to eyes and skin, making it safe for staff and patients, and gentle on most hard non-porous surfaces and non-critical patient care equipment.
The new 7" x 8" (18 cm x 20 cm) 60-count canister and 11" x 12" (28 cm x 30.5 cm) 120-count bucket join the current 6” x 7” (15 cm x 18 cm) 160-count canister. The 7" x 8" wipe is available in a slim-pack canister, and is ideal for positioning throughout healthcare facilities for point-of-care cleaning and disinfection, providing added convenience for residents, visitors and staff. The 11” x 12” size is ideal for larger area cleaning and disinfection in operating theatres, emergency departments and patient rooms. Like all members of the Oxivir disinfectant family, it provides excellent cleaning results and fast disinfection to increase the likelihood of proper usage and compliance.
“Healthcare customers in Canada now have a range of options when it comes to the Oxivir Tb Wipes,” said Carolyn Cooke, Vice President of Diversey Care Healthcare. “The convenient slim-pack wipes join our larger wipe to encourage a culture of daily cleaning and disinfection without compromising speed, efficacy or patient and staff comfort and safety.”
Dangerous pathogens can be transferred between staff and patients via high-touch surfaces such as bed rails, door knobs, hand rails and light switches. These pathogens can cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), which can be costly for patients and healthcare facilities. Oxivir Tb Wipes are a quick and effective solution for reducing HAI transmission because they offer a realistic contact time without the strong odour and skin irritation that typically accompany traditional disinfectants. The wipes also offer superior cleaning performance, all in one easy step.
Oxivir Tb Wipes fall into the lowest hazard category, requiring no safety warnings or personal protective equipment, and their unique chemistry means that the chemicals break down into oxygen and water after use.
