New Germicidal Wipe Kills 35 HAI-Causing Pathogens

July 12, 2010: 03:37 AM EST
Kimberly-Clark Professional has introduced a germicidal wipe with “a new chemistry” that cleans and disinfects environmental surfaces quickly. According to the company, KIMTECH One-Step Germicidal Wipe kills MRSA in 30 seconds and C. difficile spores in six minutes. Other environmental surface disinfectants require 10 minutes, according to the company. The greatest surface cleaning challenge facing infection control and environmental services professionals is maintaining proper contact times to kill the largest number of pathogens that cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), a company surveyu found. KIMTECH combines peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide with a proprietary wiper treatment that keeps the solution active over time, allowing it to kill 35 different organisms. The pre-moistened wipe is dispensed as ready-to-use individual sheets.
