News - Ebiox Trionic anti-microbial wipes selected by University Hospitals Leuven, Belgium

June 23 2010

Warrington-based Ebiox Ltd, has been selected by one of Belgium’s most prestigious hospitals to provide antimicrobial disinfection products.

University Hospital Leuven recently completed an intensive two year independent comparative evaluation of a range of hard surface and medical equipment wipes. Five different wipes, including Ebiox’s Trionic™ non-alcohol cleaning and disinfection wipes, were evaluated in all aspects of their use. The University Hospital Leuven found Ebiox

Trionic wipes to have the best cleaning and disinfection qualities, noting that bio burden levels were reduced whilst using the Ebiox product.
According to Ebiox, Trionic’s multi active patented formulation meets the two essential elements of decontamination firstly cleaning by removing any soiling, pathogens and importantly the bio-film in which the pathogens live and multiply. Then disinfecting the clean surface using a blend of three active biocides.

Following the in-depth evaluation, University Hospital Leuven is now implementing the Ebiox Trionic wipes throughout its wards, starting with the most at risk areas such as the intensive care unit (“ICU”).

Jeff Smith Commercial Director, said: “University Hospital Leuven is a major complex with more than 2,000 beds and 9,000 staff. It is internationally known for its high standards and we are delighted to have received this significant product approval.”
