May 20, 2014 – Spartanburg, SC – People receiving medical care are at risk of acquiring serious infections called health care-associated infections (HAI’s). One of the most serious is C.difficile or C.diff. Hospital stays from C.diff infections tripled in the last decade resulting in 14,000 deaths per year. EPA- registered Peridox® from Contec, Inc. combats C.diff outbreaks and other HAI’s with the industry’s fastest sporicidal claim of 3 minutes!
Peridox patented hyperactive alcohol-free and bleach-free chemistry provides maximum effectiveness against hard-to-kill C.diff spores, MRSA and more than 40 other dangerous pathogens (including ESKAPE pathogens – Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter species) every time you clean and disinfect. Unlike bleach, Peridox will not cause damage to medical equipment, LCD screens, clothing, upholstery, carpet or other surfaces when used as directed.
Peridox finally provides facilities with a cost effective approach to use a high-level sporicidal disinfectant every day, facility wide, to keep HAI rates in check. Peridox is the first truly viable alternative to bleach-based products that can kill C.diff quickly and efficiently in a single application.
