HOCl for Healthcare

HOCl healthcare and hygiene products are spearheading a revolution in the prevention of healthcare acquired infections (HCAI). It’s all grounded in hard science and research carried out in partnership with the NHS, BUPA and leading research hospitals in the UK.

Aqualution® Systems Ltd was born in a pharmaceutical company, and so we understand the science of healthcare. We’ve been researching why there are still so many problems with HCAI, despite all the effort that has gone into controlling them.

One often overlooked issue is that traditional disinfectants from 2 to 10 minutes to be fully effective. But in busy hospitals and care homes, the reality is that they’re usually in contact with a surface for just a few seconds, then wiped off.

If conventional disinfectants don’t have time to work, micro-organisms may not be completely wiped out, and any survivors can potentially start to develop resistance.

The implications of this are far-reaching, particularly with antibiotics becoming less effective as a cure.

The Aqualution® product Salvesan™ kills 99.99% of all known germs in a contact time of less than one minute. It’s completely safe for people and the environment, and EU approved.

Published science has shown Salvesan to be the most effective product on the market when it comes to keeping hospitals, care homes and other healthcare environments clean and safe.

Hospitals.

Salvesan is fast, safe, and kills 99% of all known germs. It has significantly outperformed standard disinfectant in a comparative study featured in Journal of Hospital Infection, carried out in collaboration with BUPA.

There has been considerable research effort and investment into understanding the processes that contribute to bacterial load, both in the lab and in practical healthcare settings.

One overlooked factor is that traditional disinfectants need between 2 and 10 minutes to work effectively. In busy hospitals, this just isn’t realistic. Usually, disinfectants are in contact with a surface for just a few seconds, then wiped off. This means some micro-organisms can survive, and could potentially acquire resistance.

Everyone understands the antibiotic risks, but not many have translated that onto the disinfectant side. This is a real threat with far-reaching implications.

Our hypochlorous acid product Salvesan™ kills harmful germs, viruses and spores including influenzas, E-coliC-difficile, MRSA and Norovirus. It outperforms traditional disinfectants in a number of areas:

  • effective – kills 99.9999% of germs
  • fast – kills all known pathogens in under 1 minute
  • safe to use, non-toxic
  • environmentally friendly
  • biodegradable
  • EU compliant

Care homes.

Salvesan is fast, safe, and kills 99% of all known germs. In a comparative study in the Journal of Hospital Infection, it significantly outperformed standard disinfectant in a residential care home setting.

Traditional disinfectants need between 2 and 10 minutes to work effectively, but in busy care homes, this just isn’t realistic. Usually, they are applied for just a few seconds, then wiped off. This means some micro-organisms can survive.

As this study reveals, traditional disinfectants can actually increase bacteria levels, possibly because of mechanical contamination through the use of cloths.

The Aqualution® hypochlorous acid product Salvesan™ kills harmful germs in under a minute, significantly reducing the likelihood of contamination. It acts effectively against a wide range of germs, viruses and spores including influenzas, E-coli, C-difficile, MRSA and Norovirus, and is EU approved.

Nurseries.

A healthy, safe and hygienic environment is vital for all children, especially in their early years. Our technology can help you look after the children in your care, with our Salvesan™ range of disinfection products.

Salvesan™ is completely harmless to people, animals and the environment. It outperforms the usual disinfectants, and can be used for sanitizing surfaces, fabrics and play equipment. Your staff don’t need to take any special precautions, or be concerned about cleaning around children, making it perfect for nurseries and schools.

Salvesan™ is fast and effective, and kills 99.99% of harmful bacteria, viruses and spores in seconds: including influenzas, E-coli, C-difficile, MRSA and Norovirus.

It’s available to buy in an easy-to-use trigger spray – just spray and wipe, for immediate disinfection protection.

Dental.

Salvesan™ can be used as a safe, effective general disinfectant in dental surgeries. Independent studies have shown it to be much more effective as a biocide than bleach, and it’s completely harmless to people and the environment, needing no special handling or disposal.

Our hypochlorous acid (HOCl) system can also be used with dental water units, which are an often overlooked source of bacteria in dental surgeries. Salvesan™ outperforms traditional disinfectants in a number of areas:

  • effective – kills 99.99% of germs
  • fast – kills all known pathogens in under 1 minute
  • safe to use, non-toxic
  • environmentally friendly
  • biodegradable
