PROTEXUS™ CASE STUDY

PROBLEM:

A major Southern University had locker rooms and a sauna located adjacent to a saline pool. Mold growth was rampant in both locker rooms and sauna. The mold was so thick on the sauna floor it was removed with a shovel. The condition required closure of the sauna and professional mold remediation on a weekly basis costing thousands annually. In an attempt to control costs and ensure the safety of the students the University sought a more permanent solution.

 SOLUTION:

Protexus was introduced to the facility manager through his cleaning supply vendor as an extremely safe, long-term solution. The affected areas were thoroughly cleaned. Protexus was applied to all walls, lockers, floors, and ceilings.

 RESULT:

With the introduction of Protexus into the University cleaning regimen along with quarterly applications, the mold problem was eliminated with no reappearance or regrowth over the eight month test period. The pool and sauna was a safe mold free environment and cleaning costs were reduced by thousands of dollars.


Steriplex SD™

A Blueprint for Reducing Healthcare Associated Infections

Healthcare Associated Infections are multifactorial in cause. As modern microorganisms have developed an exceptional ability to evolve and evade kill by most disinfectant chemistries, resistance continues to grow. This has created a great need for new disinfectant chemistries to supplement and advance existing protocols. 
While most disinfectants cannot achieve complete kill against all microbial classifications, it is the toxic, fuming, flammable and corrosive nature of these chemicals that further inhibits both where and when these disinfectants can be applied; thus restricting application to high touch points and preventing comprehensive sterilization within healthcare. For example, most disinfectants cannot be applied to both hard and soft surfaces, or be sprayed with ease towards ceilings, walls, privacy curtains and across the complex surfaces of an operatory; or be applied within natal intensive care units, within food service, or be used within a patient care room while occupied by a patient, or be applied to delicate and expensive touch screen patient monitors, MRl's and so on. To avoid corrosion and damage, floors of the entire hospital are generally cleaned and disinfected with low level cleaners and disinfectants. 
In general, if a disinfectant has a high level of efficacy it is also highly toxic and corrosive. If a disinfectant has a low level of efficacy, it is generally less toxic. Disinfectants of varying efficacy combined with varying protocols all the way through the healthcare environment can leave entire areas and equipment essentially untreated, facilitating cross contamination within the hospital setting and furthering the potential for HCAl's. 

Another limiting factor; disinfectant chemistries such as bleach and alcohol evaporate quickly, before required dwell times can effect total microbial kill. As such, limited efficacy combined with the associated chemical dangers of most disinfectants that restricts use and provides an inadequate solution for reducing microbial contamination and associated HCAl's comprehensively throughout the complex healthcare environment. 

In summary, the combinations of existing protocols and current products have not eradicated HCAl's as much as desired. Products that are too toxic or corrosive get limited use, and less toxic products lack the required efficacy. STERIPLEX SD sporicidal disinfectant represents a completely new paradigm of superior efficacy combined with superior safety, with the ability to sterilize all surfaces.

The Highest Level of Efficacy

STERIPLEX™ Sporicides:

STERIPLEX™ formulas were the very first disinfectant Sporicides to be registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. STERIPLEX™ Ultra is the only EPA Registered Sporicide available for anthrax kill. References: EPA Registration numbers: 
STERIPLEX™ Ultra: 84545-8, STERIPLEX HC: 84545-4, STERIPLEX SD: 84545-11

STERIPLEX SD™ Proven to Kill Endospores:

Some of the most deadly and resistant hospital 'superbugs' are endospores, such as Clostridium Difficile spores and consistently prove to be the most difficult to kill of all microorganisms. There are very few disinfectants that can kill C. diff and other endospores that are not also extremely toxic, fuming and corrosive. STERIPLEX SD™ is a hospital grade C. diff sporicide that does not contain bleach, is not toxic and is proven to achieve complete kill against endospores even on the most difficult surfaces. Reference: STERIPLEX SD™ EPA Claims Sheet #84545-11 1.9s
STERIPLEX SD achieves a >6-log reduction of endospores, including Bacillus Subtilis, Clostridium Difficile; and broad-spectrum kill against mycobacterium/acid-fast bacilli, naked virus, gram­negative bacteria, gram-positive bacteria, fungi/molds/yeast, and enveloped viruses in vitro in under 5 minutes. Reference: STERIPLEX SD EPA Claims Sheet #84545-11 1.9s

STERIPLEX SD™ Proven to Kill Mycobacterium:

The second highest level potency of disinfectants is measured against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and is also recognized as a substantial benchmark. The U.S. CDC/MMWR states: "Because Mycobacteria have among the highest intrinsic levels of resistance among the vegetative bacteria, viruses, and fungi, any germicide with a tuberculocidal claim on the label is considered capable of inactivating a broad spectrum of pathogens, including such less-resistant organisms as bloodborne pathogens (e.g., HBV, HCV, and HIV). It is this broad-spectrum capability, rather than the product's specific potency against mycobacteria, that is the basis for protocols and regulations dictating use of tuberculocidal chemicals for surface disinfection." References: Disinfectant Sporicide-Tuberculocide_whitepaper, STERIPLEX SD EPA Claims Sheet

STERIPLEX SD™ Denatures DNA:

Beyond achieving complete kill of all types of microorganisms, STERIPLEX SD™ has also been proven to denature DNA. An independent study proving that STERIPLEX SD™ is far more effective in denaturing DNA than Bleach was performed by the U.S. National Forensic Science and Technology Center. Where bleach achieves a 2-fold reduction of DNA, STERIPLEX SD™ achieves a 30-fold reduction of DNA. Given that resistant microbes have been proven capable of sharing their DNA and thus the ability to resist disinfectants andantibiotics with other microbes, the ability of STERIPLEX SD™ to denature DNA from environmental surfaces is another critical element in preventing the spread, evolution and increasing resistance of microorganisms within the healthcare environment. This data is evidenced in the Huntsman Cancer Hospital End of Study Report Conclusion 7 30 2012, where after using STERIPLEX SD™ for 5 months, Bio-Contamination levels per ATP analysis were at an all time low as measured in Relative Light Units.

In Compliance with CDC Guidelines

STERIPLEX SD™ is an EPA-rated One-Step Cleaner and Hospital Disinfectant: 

In healthcare environments many substances can exist on surfaces in conjunction with microorganisms such as chemicals, proteins, bioburden, blood, soil, and debris, which poses a difficult challenge as the disinfectant must remain antimicrobially active while penetrating and mixing with other substances. Conversely, standard AOAC kill-time protocols require that the disinfectant is tested against a single microorganism only, with no other substances present. 
The U.S. EPA and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) require that cleaning and disinfecting must be accomplished in two steps. First the surface must be cleaned. Second, the surface must be disinfected. Disinfectants that require cleaning and disinfection in two steps have not been proven capable of withstanding proteins, detergents or other chemicals while retaining the ability to kill microorganisms. It is for this reason that two-step disinfectants often fail in real world environments. 
As such the EPA has established the One-Step cleaner and disinfectant rating and associated AOAC protocols for achieving this rating. The EPA One-Step cleaner and disinfectant rating is achieved when each and every required microorganism claimed on a disinfectant label is tested using a 5% serum or soil load. This is a far more difficult microbial test proving that the disinfecting chemistry is not inactivated in the presence of bioburden. 
The CDC recommends implementation of a One-Step Process in Healthcare Facilities, stating: "The ultimate goal of the Recommendations for Disinfection and Sterilization in Healthcare Facilities, 2008, is to reduce rates of healthcare associated infections through appropriate use of both disinfection and sterilization. Under these guidelines per Section S's recommendations: "Cleaning and Disinfecting Environmental Surfaces in Healthcare Facilities", the CDC recommends in Paragraph G: "Use a one-step process and an EPA-registered hospital disinfectant designed for housekeeping purposes in patient care areas where 1) uncertainty exists about the nature of the soil on the surfaces (e.g., blood or body fluid contamination versus routine dust or dirt); or 2} uncertainty exists about the presence of multidrug resistant organisms on such surfaces." 
As a One-Step Cleaner and Hospital Disinfectant, STERIPLEX SD has been proven to remain highly active in the presence of other chemicals and debris, while achieving complete kill against all types of microorganisms. Reference: CDC Recommends One-Step Cleaner Disinfectant,

360° Sterilization, the New Protocol

Considering the toxic, fuming and corrosive nature of most disinfectant chemicals such as bleach, to aerosolize these chemicals by high volume spray methods would have very negative effects on users, patients and the healthcare environment. There are very few disinfectants that can be aerosolized or sprayed without negative effect. 

STERIPLEX SD™ elevates efficacy and makes new protocols possible.

With the very highest sporicidal kill and no toxic fumes or corrosion, STERIPLEX SD™ can be applied using the most advanced mechanical spray devices to disinfect both hard and soft surfaces from floors to ceilings, privacy curtains, complex surfaces, water sensitive equipment and everything in between, achieving 360 degree sterilization of all surfaces within minutes. STERIPLEX SD™ does not require wipe up, post rinse or to have the molecules removed from the air. Once applied, STERIPLEX SD™ dissipates from the air quickly and leaves zero toxic residues. STERIPLEX SD™ can also be used as a clean and disinfect gross matter in both mop and wipe application protocols, with both liquid and single use disinfecting wipes available. 

Comprehensive, 360 degree sterilization achieves the greatest reduction of microbe counts and associated HCAl's. Thus, sterilize and 'treat' the total patient care environment, and more effectively treat the patient. An aseptic environment improves patient care outcomes, the healthcare working environment, significantly reduces costs and enhances reputation of the healthcare organization as a whole.

STERIPLEX SD™ Clinical Trials

On February 1st, 2012 Huntsman Cancer Hospital began a clinical trial using STERIPLEX SD™ to disinfect the most sensitive areas of the hospital, the bone marrow transplant units, where patients have virtually no immunity and are thus highly susceptible to infection. In just 30 days of STERIPLEX SD™ use, documented monthly infection rates of Clostridium Difficile, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Extended Spectrum Beta Lactimase (ESBL) and Vancomycin resistance (VRE) were reduced to zero and remained zero throughout the twelve month trial.
