WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., June 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PDI, a leader in infection prevention products and solutions, will showcase two breakthrough product innovations at the 46th Annual Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology Conference (APIC) in Philadelphia from June 12 through June 14.
These two new revolutionary disinfection spray products expand PDI's leading environment of care offerings, empowering healthcare facilities to more effectively protect their patients and staff against recontamination. The first to come in a full portfolio of products, they will be available in a limited market release in July, with a full market release at the end of 2019.
- Sani-24® Germicidal Spray utilizes Continuously Active Disinfecting (CAD) technology, which disinfects a surface and immediately addresses 22 relevant pathogens, and leaves behind a shield that prevents key epidemiologically-relevant pathogens from recontaminating and recolonizing the surface for up to 24 hours or 96 touches (These 5 organisms are: Enterobacter aerogenes, Enterococcus faecalis VRE (Vancomycin resistant enterococcus), Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus aureus (Methicillin Resistant) (MRSA)).
- Sani-HyPerCide™ Germicidal Spray is a powerful and simple-to-use disinfection spray with a non-bleach sporicidal hydrogen peroxide formula that provides one-minute disinfection for a broad range of microorganisms, including Norovirus and TB, and the ability to kill Clostridium difficile in 5 minutes. Compatible by Design™, the hydrogen peroxide formula is designed to provide powerful protection against HAI-causing microorganisms across general, isolation, and terminal settings without compromising compatibility.
With these new products and claims, PDI furthers its commitment to preventing the spread of HAIs by tackling continually-evolving and increasingly dangerous multi-drug resistant organisms. To learn more about PDI's infection prevention solutions, visit PDI at booth #501 or pdihc.com.
