Wipes meet international regulations

Pal International, which has manufactured a wide range of hygiene products and protective clothing for over three decades and currently supplies products to over 70 countries, has launched a new range of healthcare wipes that are compliant with the Medical Devices Directive (93/42/EEC), international quality standard ISO13485:2003 and carry the CE mark.

The wipes provide disinfection of external non-porous surfaces of medical equipment and devices prior to sterilisation in healthcare environments such as hospitals, dental surgeries and care homes. ‘Effective against 99.9% of bacteria, as well as viruses and fungi, micro-organisms such as Clostridium difficile, MRSA, and the H1N1 Influenza virus are destroyed, making Pal disinfectant wipes ideal in preventing cross-contamination and limiting hospital acquired infections,’ the firm reports. ‘Pal also offer a 70% alcohol and Chlorhexidine disinfectant wipes as part of the healthcare wipes range, all with proven efficacy against numerous bacteria, viruses and micro-organisms. Available in a variety of packaging, the single use wipes deliver a correct dose of pre-mixed disinfectant solution to the surface and require no rinsing.’
The firm’s team of technicians and microbiologists develop standard and bespoke products in its in-house laboratories. Pal’s range is then independently tested by approved organisations, such as Blu Scientific (Glasgow Caledonian University), City Hospital Birmingham and Campden & Chorleywood Food Research Association.
