Eye on Superbugs--Special Report: Ebola
Written by: Selective Micro Technologies
This week’s “Eye on Superbugs” series is a Special Report on the virus currently wreaking havoc in West Africa: Ebola. According to the World Health Organization, this is the “largest and most complex Ebola outbreak since the Ebola virus was first discovered in 1976. There have been more cases and deaths in this outbreak than all others combined.” This outbreak has been the focus of major news sources around the world. Due to the fact that in its history this virus has shown to have a mortality rate from 50- 90%, these recent outbreaks have been causing worldwide panic.
On August 21, 2014, Selective Micro Technologies’ Selectrocide 2L500 and Selectrocide 5G were listed as an EPA hospital approved disinfectant. The EPA listed both of SMT’s products, and by extension the Selectrocide line, as having agency confirmed efficacy which includes products that have passed ATP testing and are approved as hospital disinfectants.
A new, safe and powerful disinfectant.
Imagine a disinfectant much more powerful than raw bleach. Now imagine that same powerful disinfectant, that won’t harm your skin or burn your eyes.
Using EPA approved testing methodology, Selective Micro® demonstrated both 50 and 100ppm concentrations of pure chlorine dioxide meet efficacy standards for microbial reduction. This recommendation is fully substantiated by empirical evidence. This is especially true as considered or measured against other commonly known or used decontamination agents.
