PDI Launches First Fragrance and Alcohol-free Quat-based Disinfecting Wipe With Three-minute Kill Time

Professional Disposables International, Inc. (PDI), maker of the Sani-Cloth® the number one brand of disinfecting wipes in healthcare, introduces Sani-Cloth® AF, the first and only fragrance free, alcohol free, quaternary-based surface disinfection wipe with an overall kill time of three minutes. Sani-Cloth AF Germicidal Disposable Wipe is tested effective against 25 clinically relevant microorganisms, including five multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs). Because fragrance has been removed from the disinfecting solution, Sani-Cloth AF can be used around patients, residents and healthcare workers with respiratory conditions and sensitivities. As an alcohol-free disinfectant, Sani-Cloth AF is perfect for use on alcohol-sensitive equipment and other hard non-porous surfaces. It also helps healthcare institutions comply with the National Fire Protection Agency Life Code 101, which limits the amounts of alcohol placed within a contained area.

This allows Sani-Cloth AF to have broader placement within a healthcare facility and more convenient accessibility for healthcare workers. “Sani-Cloth AF provides clinicians with an unparalleled surface disinfection solution that is both alcohol- and fragrance-free, allowing for use in even the most sensitive patient environments, as well as on a wide variety of typical healthcare surfaces and equipment,” said PDI’s Director of Clinical Affairs, Hudson Garrett, Jr., PhD.

“The product’s three-minute contact time ensures compliance and permits quick turnover of the equipment and/or patient room, while demonstrating effectiveness against clinically relevant microorganisms.” Sani-Cloth AF is the newest component in PDI’s comprehensive suite of germicidal wipes and companion products designed to make surface disinfection easier and more effective.

Optional dispensing accessories are available for use with Sani-Cloth AF and are designed to aid in compliance with disinfection protocols, along with meeting regulatory requirements from The Joint Commission and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
