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 ISO9001 and EN13485 and 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 trigger spray chamber, via a non-hazardous twin pack solution 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. CHEMGENE HOCl2000 is sporicidal (Clostridium difficile) in 1 minute in clean and dirty conditions according to EN13704 (ref. HIRL, Dudley Road) and also effective against TB in 1 minute in clean and dirty conditions (ref. HIRL) CHEMGENE HOCl2000 has been tested by University of Cambridge Biotechnology Department to be effective at denaturing / precipitating DNA / RNA in 5 minutes.
CHEMGENE HOCl2000 is packaged as a trigger spray that keeps its two actives separate. As such, there are no special disposal or transport considerations
