CHEMGENE HOCL2000 has been developed to meet the demands of clinical departments seeking fast sporicidal disinfection without compromising materials compatibility. Hypochlorous acid has been used for many years within the food industry and more recently as a stable endoscope sterilising fluid for Automated Endoscope Washer Disinfectors.
CHEMGENE HOCL2000 is manufactured in the UK according to EN13485 and ISO9001, is a British product concept with International patents granted and pending.
This new and patented pH near neutral solution produces instantaneous levels of Hypochlorous acid from a specially designed pair of soluble sachets that is fully compliant according to CLP and Transport regulations. Based on a unique patented formulation that generates safe levels of Hypochlorous Acid by mixing a base and activator in-situ. Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is produced by the human body’s immune cells to fight infections. It is effective against a broad range of microorganisms. It is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-corrosive at proper usage concentrations.
CHEMGENE HOCL2000 is independently tested as Sporicidal, Mycobactericidal, Virucidal, Fungicidal and Bactericidal according to recognised EN test protocols in clean and dirty conditions. Sporicidal (Clostridium difficile) and mycobactericidal (TB) in 1 minute
CHEMGENE HOCL2000 has been tested by University of Cambridge Biotechnology Department to be effective at denaturing / precipitating DNA / RNA in 5 minutes.
