Healthcare-associated infections, also known as HAIs, are becoming a very prevalent issue in the healthcare world. More and more often, we read about a new superbug responsible for sickening or perhaps even killing patients who are staying in hospitals--or sometimes those who have recently visited one. For instance, in a UCLA hospital in Los Angeles in February, the superbug CRE was identified as being responsible for 2 deaths and many more cases of illness. In fact, up to 170 patients were exposed to the conditions that were responsible for 2 deaths.
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.
