Surgical site infections (SSIs) are the second most common cause of hospital acquired (Nosocomial) infections and can result in high morbidity and mortality. The surgical room environment, including air, floor & wall, is an important factor contributing to exogenous infection. 


Traditionally, formalin fumes have been used for sterilization of OTs and sick rooms. However, as studies indicate that formaldehyde is a potential carcinogen, its use has become obsolete in many developed nations in view of the toxic nature of formalin.

We present to you an alternative to formalin fumigation that is just as effective, without any of the hazards of formalin.

The treatment is through the use of a water-based formulation. Developed after intensive research, it is a cock-tail of glutaraldehyde and two different varieties of quaternary ammonium compounds, giving it the effect of a ‘Fifth Generation’ anti-microbial agent.It is a safe virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, and mycobactericidal. Mortality is by contact.

The formulation is applied using a high-power ultra low-volume mist for even dispersal, and for maximum reach.

 The O.T./sick room is ready for use 4 hours after treatment and subsequent ventilation. 

 

The same ant-microbial liquid can be used as a foot-dip for people entering operation theatres, ICUs and other sensitive areas.

 

In sum, the treatment we provide is –

 

ü     Highly effective against all microbiological flora.

ü     Safe for humans

ü   Non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic

ü Environmentally safe as it is bio-degradable
