Hypochlorous Acid - Potency Matters
Hypochlorous Acid is an effective disinfectant even in measures as low as 10ppm, however, to remove harmful and stubborn bacteria – higher levels of ppm are proven to be more effective. In the case of HOCl, more is more.
Which is why we promote the benefits of our disinfectant solution being produced at 600ppm, compared to other contenders on the market producing HOCl as low as 150ppm.
What does ppm mean?
Ppm is the measurement mass of a chemical per unit volume of water, it is also known as mg/L. Therefore, in a bottle of HOCl consisting of 150ppm – it will be a more diluted version of HOCl and therefore far less potent than a 600ppm version.
At 600 ppm Pathisol Clinical Cleaner and Disinfectant will kill persistent spores of Clostridia difficile (C.diff) and many other bacteria and fungi that produce spores.
Reducing hospital acquired infections is at the core of everything we do and Pathisol’s HOCl solution at 600 ppm is the only HOCl that the EPA in the USA has recognised as killing C.diff spores.
To substantiate our claims, clinical trials have been performed in hospitals under controlled conditions using Pathisol Heavy Duty All Purpose Cleaner and Pathisol Clinical Cleaner and Disinfectant. The results proved a reduction of C.diff within a hospital proving its effectiveness for a highly persistent and dangerous infection.
HOCl Success in New York
Our Lead Scientist of Pathisol Barrington Burles, shares anecdotal experience of visiting some of the most soiled and badly kept Hospitals in New York. He has since confirmed that they are now using the same approach adopted by Pathisol by applying HOCl disinfectant after cleaning with a degreaser and are now amongst the cleanest.
We focus on delivering an excellent outcome using the best science and technology because it has been proven to work in the most challenging of contaminated environments.
You can trust in Pathisol products and their effectiveness, when comparing them to other products available produced at far lower ppm. Whilst being 60X stronger than bleach and kind to our environment.
