Clinell Detergent Range

Accordingly to the World Health Organization, to effectively clean any surface you should always remove any visible dirt using a detergent. This is so that a disinfectant wipe or spray can attack the bacteria, viruses and germs effectively.

As a result of not removing the visible dirt from the surface, it can act as a barrier and protect harmful germs from the disinfectant agents leaving them to multiply. In other words, they are free to infect you.

This is why we recommend using Clinell detergent wipes to pre clean surfaces using their incredibly powerful, ultra-low smear formula. In addition, they are alcohol and disinfectant free and derived from sustainable plant sources, and ultimately allow you to keep patients and workplaces safe without harming the Earth.

Clinell Detergent Wipes your perfect solution for fighting against harmful germs.

Clinell Antimicrobial Range

What is Antimicrobial? Is this just the same as antibacterial? why do we need these?

Firstly, they are not the same, antimicrobial destroys or inhibits the growth of microorganisms, especially a pathogenic organism.

Whereas antibacterial agents destroys or inhibits the growth bacteria.

Secondly, Antimicrobial wipes help stop the spread of pathogens that can cause disease, which is especially important in a hospital setting where many people already have weakened immune systems.

Finally, in addition to killing viruses such as Covid-19 in just 30 seconds, Clinell Antimicrobial wipes can be used at the point of most risk, where soap and water are not available.

For example, office receptions, communal bathrooms, high footfall areas, coming in a range of packs and sprays this truly an essential product for workplaces in 2021.

Coronavirus, Norovirus, Influenza (Flu)

A virus is a microscopic parasite which can infect living organisms and cause disease. It can make copies of itself inside another organism’s cells. Generally, viruses are much smaller than bacteria butthat doesn’t make them any less dangerous. Because viruses are not strictly alive they can exist on surfaces for many weeks and this makes them difficult to control.

Within the virus class we have 2 types; non-enveloped and enveloped. Non-enveloped viruses are composed of capsid protein and nucleic acid (DNA or RNA), termed the nucleocapsid, which constitute an infectious unit, the virion, whereas Enveloped viruses are composed of an envelope along with the nucleocapsid.

Can viruses be effectively controlled?

Historically most disinfectants have been tested to BS EN 1276; this is a suspension test which involves the exposure of bacteria to a chemical over a set time period and looking at the number of bacteria which can reproduce after the exposure is complete. A log 5 reduction is required to pass this test; this means that if 1,000,000 bacteria were exposed to the disinfectant and 10 were left this would result in a 99.999% reduction (a logS).

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic people are more interested in tests that were developed for medical purposes, this includes BS EN 14476. Forth is test to pass we need to see a log reduction (99.99% inactivationfora pass).

To eliminate a virus such as the Covid-19 strain of Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) we need to see that the product has passed the full version or a modification of the same test which includes a specific strain of an enveloped virus (a coronavirus is an enveloped virus).

Fighting against BACTERIA

BS EN 1276 is the European standard for the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants. In order to pass this standard, products must prove a bacteria kill rate of 99.999% within 5 minutes.

Methylcillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Cases of infection caused by Methylcillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) are on the increase in the care sector. However, the dangers of this virulent superbug are not limited to hospitals.

MRSA infection can actually occur in any communal establishment and can have potentially disastrous consequences to health.

In order to prevent infection outbreaks, it is essential to use a disinfectant that has been tested against a specified strain of MRSA to BS EN 1276.

Clostridium Difficile (C.Difficile)

Clostridium Difficile is a spore-forming bacterium. This makes it difficult to combat using traditional disinfectants, as spores are able to survive and breed even in harsh conditions.

In order to ensure effective control of C. Difficile, a sporicidal disinfectant must therefore be used. To ensure that a product is effective against Clostridium Difficile spores, check that it complies to BS EN 13704 (European standard for the sporicidal activity of chemical disinfectants).

Are Clinell products effective against coronavirus?

The Clinell Universal Range, Clinell Sporicidal Wipes, and Clinell Clorox Wipes have all been tested against strains of coronavirus and proven effective.

Are Clinell Universal Wipes effective against the new UK and South African variants of coronavirus?

Yes. The changes in the new variants are very small mutations in their surface proteins. Whilst that has a big impact on how they affect the human body, it doesn’t give them increased resistance to disinfectants. Clinell Universal Wipes kill the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in 30 seconds on surfaces.

Have Clinell Universal Wipes been tested against COVID-19?

Clinell Universal Wipes have been proven effective against the exact strain of coronavirus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in 30 seconds. They've been tested according to the EN14476 test method by an accredited, third-party laboratory.

Do Clinell Universal Wipes comply with UK national guidance about COVID-19?

UK national guidance for healthcare professionals specifically mentions chlorine as a disinfectant. This is because chlorine has long been seen as the 'de facto' disinfectant within UK healthcare. The guidance recommends using alternative disinfectants if they are agreed with the local Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) team and proven effective against enveloped viruses. Clinell Universal Wipes are effective against enveloped viruses according to EN14476. In addition, Clinell Universal Wipes are proven effective against the exact coronavirus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in 30 seconds, according to EN14476. As long as they are agreed with your local IPC team, Clinell Universal Wipes are perfectly compliant with UK national guidance.

What are the caution statements associated with these products?

For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Discontinue use if irritation develops, if irritation persists for more than 72 hours seek medical advice. Use on complex or invasive equipment is not advised. If using for prolonged periods, wear gloves. Do not macerate. Do not flush.

Why does it have a single use symbol on a pack of multiple wipes?

Each individual wipe is single use. This prevents the transfer of pathogens between surfaces or from one medical device to another.

What different formats are available for this product?

A variety of formats are available: Clinell Universal Buckets 225 (CWBUC225), Clinell Universal Bucket Refills 225 (CWBUC225R), Clinell Universal Clip Packs 50 (CWCP50), Clinell Universal Spray 60ml (CDS60), Clinell Universal Spray 500ml (CDS500), Clinell Universal Spray 750ml (CDS750), Clinell Universal Tubs 100 (CWTUB100), Clinell Universal Tub refills 100 (CWTUB100R), Clinell Universal Wipes 200 (CW200), Clinell Universal Wipes 40 (CW40) and Clinell Universal Wipe Adhesive Back 50 (CWAB50)

Why is the product referred to as a Universal Wipe?

The wipes function as both disinfectant and detergent. They can also be used on all surfaces and all ward-based equipment.

Why is it important to clean in addition to disinfecting?

Dirt creates a barrier between a surface and the disinfectant on the wipe therefore prevents the surface from being disinfected. Clinell Universal Wipes are designed to remove both dirt and disinfect at the same time meaning detergent and disinfectant wipes no longer need to be bought as two separate products.

What are the active ingredients in Clinell Universal Wipes?

The formulation in Clinell Universal Wipes is a patented, antimicrobial solution developed by GAMA's Research & Development Department. It contains multiple different biocides including two quaternary ammonium compounds and one polymeric biguanide designed to work synergistically. The effectiveness of the biocides is increased by many multiples when they are used together. This, in turn, ensures that the wipe has wide antimicrobial activity and a high kill count. In addition, the wipe contains surfactant (to act as a detergent) and a chelating agent.

Does using disinfectants increase the chance of resistance occurring with pathogens?

No, there is no risk of resistance occurring due to long-term use. This is because Universal delivers a high concentration of multiple different biocides each of which uses a differing mechanism of action, preventing resistance.

What does the term "contact time" mean?

"Contact time" is the time required for the disinfectant to act on pathogens. Essentially: how long it takes for the disinfectant to work. With liquid disinfectants, the contact time requires the disinfectant to remain wet on the surface in order for it to work effectively. The contact time can vary depending on the micro-organisms involved.

Why is the kill count important to know?

Apart from how fast it takes a disinfectant to work (i.e. contact time), it is also important to determine how many of a particular microorganism have been killed. A fast contact time would count for nothing if it allowed the majority of the microorganisms to remain active. This reduction in microorganisms or “kill count” is expressed in a log form. Put simply, the log number is the number of 9s expressed in a percentage reduction. For example: 2 log reduction is 99%, 4 log reduction is 99.99% and so on. Clinell Universal Wipes have demonstrated a 5 log kill count (99.999%) for most pathogens in the contact time specified.

Does the mechanical action of the wipe play an important part in the disinfection process?

The mechanical action of wiping removes soil and bioburden allowing the disinfectant to reach the surface and kill any remaining microorganisms directly. The bioburden that remains on the wipe is killed by the disinfectant that remains on the wipe.

Does the wipe retain some of the disinfectant?

Generally, wipe materials contain certain molecules that can hold and lock the wipe formulation into the wipe itself, preventing release. In other words, the disinfectant liquid that is put into a wipe is not the same as when extracted off a wipe. Therefore, testing must be carried out on the run off from the wipe rather than the formulation itself. GAMA Healthcare is one of the very few companies to ensure that the accredited laboratories who complete our independent testing do so on the run off from the wipes.

Where can Universal Wipes be used?

Universal Wipes are safe to be used on all surfaces. They will not damage rubbers, plastics or metals. Though alcohol-based wipes tend to damage materials after prolonged use, our patented, pH neutral formula ensures that this will not occur with Clinell Universal Wipes. Alongside surfaces, Universal Wipes can be used on all non-invasive medical devices. If you are unsure about whether the wipes are suitable to use on a particular object or surface please call a member of our sales team, who will be happy to assist.

What products do these wipes replace?

Universal Wipes are able to replace all detergent and disinfectant surface wipes (except for Sporicidal Wipes) and by doing so will help standardise wipe usage in a hospital, saving time, money and preventing confusion about the type of wipe required for each cleaning task. They are also able to replace medical device wipes (for use on non-invasive medical devices).

Where was the testing conducted for this wipe?

The tests mentioned have been conducted at various UK and European university accredited laboratories, according to test methods outlined by the European Union. All results are validated.

What are the wall-mounted dispensers?

These are colour-coded, plastic or wire dispensers that can be attached to hospital walls and are designed to hold the large flow wrap packs, tubs and buckets of Clinell Universal Wipes. Wall-mounted dispensers are available free-of-charge to all NHS hospitals in the UK. Installation (arranged through the GAMA Healthcare Sales Team) is also free of charge. Extra dispensers can be ordered directly through GAMA Healthcare as part of our comprehensive customer support package.

Are there any special disposal requirements?

Used wipes should be disposed of in the clinical waste bin as per your infection control policy. Maceratable Wipes can be disposed of in a macerator.

How would you summarise the benefits of Clinell Universal Wipes?

As the name suggests, Clinell Universal Wipes have a wide range of applications. Not only are they a single-step detergent and disinfectant wipe but they are suitable for all ward-based surfaces and all non-invasive medical devices. This allows hospitals to replace multiple products, saving money and simplifing their infection prevention policies. The wipes have a broad range of antimicrobial activity and are able to kill many pathogens within a very fast contact time and with a very high kill count. The efficacy of the wipes is backed-up by an extensive data package. Finally, purchases of Clinell Universal Wipes come with a fantastic customer support package including: custom-made posters and patient information leaflets; free wall-mounted dispensers (installed free-of-charge); comprehensive ward-based training by experienced infection control trainers; and a tablet-based training package.
