Challis Ag+ Launch New Tool Disinfectant Virucide

Challis Ag+ Naturally Pure, Environmentally Friendly Anti Microbial Tool Disinfectant

Decontaminating hands with antimicrobial wipes or hand washes between wards is a well-established protocol that has been undeniably a very effective measure in improving infection control.  However, the decontamination of tradesman tools as they transfer and work between wards is often overlooked and the level of risk often under-considered, within some case no protocols in place at all.

Imagine the risk involved in a tradesman working in high bacterial load areas such as toilets or bathrooms then moving to work repairing a basin tap on a high dependency ward.  Protocols are undoubtedly in place regarding decontamination of hands but often the decontamination of tools are completely overlooked and yet present the highest risk of all.

A simple and effective solution is now available from Challis Ag+ in the form of Challis Ag+ Tool disinfectant and area decontamination spray inconvenient and easy to use 500ml & 1.0-litre spray bottles. Naturally Pure, environmentally friendly Challis Ag+ Tool disinfectant gives complete broad-spectrum Anti Microbial control solution for rapid and safe disinfection of fittings, pipe sections, working equipment, tools and surfaces

One application over tools, fittings or surfaces between transfers will quickly, safely and completely decontaminate.  Ensuring that no areas of work are bacterially compromised and maintaining the high level of infection control required and expected. Providing your patients with a safe, clean, risk-free environment.
