Esense - Advanced Hand Hygiene

The Esense product range:

Esense Antimicrobial Hand Sanitising Foam Rub

It is well recognised that handwashing is the single, most effective means of preventing healthcare associated infections. Esense™ Hand Wash removes transient organisms as well as reducing resident organisms to a ‘safe’ level and has been proven against common micro-organisms in under 30 seconds giving at least 99.999% reduction.

Esense™ Hand Rub is a technologically advanced, alcohol free hand rub which is proven effective against common micro-organisms within 30 seconds. Fast acting and as effective as alcohol based products in reducing micro-organisms yet is free from the potential skin damaging side effects of alcohol based products. Safe to use and easy to dispense, the drying time allows maximum contact time to maximize efficacy utilising the Ayliffe Technique.

The handy sized non-alcohol antimicrobial Esense Hand Sanitising Rubs, in Foam and Spray versions provide the same effective protection against cross infection. All Esense™ Hand Rub products chlorhexidine and triclosan free and conform to EN1500, EN12054 and EN14476 European Efficacy Standards.

The Esense range has been independently tested to prove its efficacy and all referenced data is available on request. Compliance with hand hygiene protocols has increased with focus on the issues and education, however there remains scope for improvement. One of the key reasons still stated for non-compliance is the dislike of using products that can dry and irritate the skin. Ebiox non-alcohol based products address this.

Trionic - Advanced Environmental Hygiene

Ebiox advanced decontamination technology, have developed a unique and highly effective range of cleaning and decontamination products that represent the latest advances in technology. Each product in the comprehensive range has been specifically designed to assist in the control of potentially harmful pathogens and reduce the risk of cross infection.
When used separately, every product will give outstanding results but, when used together in their specific areas of use, the synergistic effect enhances performance providing users with an exceptional means of minimising healthcare associated infections.

Whilst the products are highly effective, they are also safe and pleasant to use, reducing health and safety implications and are not harmful to our environment.
All products are manufactured to ISO9002 and have been tested and approved to international quality standards. The range has also undergone stringent research to prove their efficacy and all referenced data is available on request.

“A clean hospital environment is of paramount importance to all staff and patients” NHS Estates report: National Standards of Cleanliness for the NHS
Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces in healthcare facilities is critical to reducing HAIs. The number and types of pathogens present on environmental surfaces are influenced by several factors:

•    The number of people in the environment
•    Amount of activity
•    Amount of moisture (pathogens are present in greater numbers in moist, organic environments, but some can also persist under dry conditions)
•    Presence of material capable of supporting microbial growth (Biofilm)
•    Rate at which pathogens suspended in air are removed
•    Type of surface and orientation (i.e., horizontal or vertical)
Studies show that 70 percent of environmental surfaces in rooms of patients who were colonized or infected were contaminated with potentially harmful pathogens.

Cleaning is the necessary and essential first step of any disinfection process. It is needed to render the environmental surface safe to handle or use by removing organic matter, salts, and visible soils – all of which interfere with microbial inactivation.

Trionic is designed to Clean and Disinfect Environmental Surfaces or Medical Equipment.

“Ebiox wipes were effective, in less than one minute, in reducing microorganisms to a threshold below which it was not possible to accurately measure their viability” Independent test - Q Labs.

The way that Trionic removes biofilm is by interacting with the organic molecules, particularly the microbial secretions and breaking up the microbial aggregates using the surfactants in the formulation. Once the biofilm is forced to form a suspension within the compound, it is vulnerable to the QACs and biguanide mixture which kills any additional microbes at the surface. Independent Report – Xenobiotica 2010

Trionic products are:

•    Easy to use
•    No complex protocols
•    Safe to the user
•    Safe on materials
•    Safe to the environment
•    Broad Spectrum biocidal activity
•    Easy to store
•    Long Shelf Life

Neozyme & Ultra - Advanced Instrument Cleaning

What is meant by keeping instruments humid or wet?

To keep surgical instruments “wet” during and following surgery is to maintain humidity at saturation or near saturation levels in the vicinity of the instruments. This approach has a high likelihood of reducing protein adsorption and of making subsequent removal easier compared with the present “dry” approach in which humidity may be highly variable. It does not mean exposure to free aqueous environments by immersion.

A number of means are available to generate humid conditions, including the use of:
• Gels
• Foams
• Enclosed containers used with aerosol generators

Neozyme is designed to keep soiling on used surgical instruments moist prior to the start of the decontamination process, reducing the re-wash rate. It is a ready to use blend of high foaming surfactants, an enzymatic agent and a preservative.

By applying as soon as the operative procedure is completed, Neozyme keeps protein in soiling moist but does not remove it. Also stopping the salts within the contaminate from damaging the stainless steel instruments prolonging their life.

Ultra P
A patented solution to clean surgical instruments to molecular level, removing tissue residues, fluids and other pathogenic debris. Use as a pre-soak, in ultrasonic baths or for manual cleaning of surgical instruments.

• Proven to remove biofilms
• Use to pre-soak instruments prior to autoclaving
• Particularly effective on hard to clean instruments
• Easily removes lubricating jelly
• Safe to use on delicate devices, ophthalmic instruments and sensitive tubing
• Ideal for cold cleaning of endoscopes and heat sensitive instruments
• Pleasant fragrance, no release of irritating vapours

Ultra L

A patented liquid concentrate detergent that is suitable for use in automatic spray and ultrasonic washer disinfection machines. Cleans surgical instruments to the molecular level* removing tissue residues, fluids and other pathogenic debris.
• Proven to remove biofilms
• Cleans instruments to the molecular level reducing the rewash rate
• Particularly effective on difficult instruments penetrating crevices and burrs
• Safe to use on stainless steel, aluminium and plastics
• Pleasant and safe to use
• Suitable for hard and soft water conditions
