When it comes to fighting superbugs, alcohol wipes are a top way of keeping your workplace and environment clean and resistant to bugs that like to linger around. Environments like care homes, hospitals, laboratories and schools are breeding grounds for bacterial like MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella, Typhimurium, Listeria Monocytogenes and Staphyloccus Aureus.
When used, our Clinitex alcohol wipes help to prevent the spread of bacteria like these – the secret weapon being the 70% Isopropyl Alcohol or Ethanol that the wipes are soaked in.
At Techtex, we know how important it is to tailor our products for use in a variety of environments. That’s why we have three types of alcohol wipes in our healthcare range, designed with very specific purposes in mind.
R501 Hard Surfaces Disinfection Wipes have been developed specifically with the food production and service industry in mind. The strong, blue, disinfection wipes are suitable for use in all food preparation areas. They’re blue colour ensures they fit with hygiene regulations and are highly visible to all staff.
The wipes are soaked in 70% v/v Isopropyl Alcohol and are effective against a range of bacteria. The alcohol evaporates quickly, leaving nearly zero oil traces. The 70% v/v Isopropyl Alcohol is also a strong and safer alternative to common cleaning products.
The R502 Hard Surfaces Disinfection Wipes are exactly the same as the R501 wipes, except they come in white rather than blue. The blue colour that’s so important in the food industry isn’t necessary in other healthcare environments – hence why this particular product is manufactured in the standard white colour.
The R503 Food Probe Disinfection Wipes are very similar in design to the R501 wipes. They’re hard wearing and come in a blue colour but instead of being soaking in Isopropyl Alcohol, they’re soaked in 70% Ethanol. Both are alcohols and similarly effective. As a disinfectant, Ethanol works by denaturing proteins and dissolving lipids, effectively destroying many types of bacterial and viral cells.
They R503 wipes are ideal for cleaning temperature probes and are odourless like the R501 wipes, to ensure the taste of food isn’t tainted.
All three types of wipes come in batches of 12, with each tub containing 200 wipes. What’s more, all our tubs of wipes are foil sealed to prevent leakage, and have been independently tested in accordance with European standards EN1276. This means that these products have been certified as effective in reducing the number of viable bacterial cells of the relevant test microorganisms.
Like all our products, the alcohol wipes have been developed to the best possible quality for the market. Our reputation has meant we’re now the leading suppliers of alcohol wipes to a number of world-class organisations in the healthcare, retail and food industries.
