The Clinell range of Universal Wipes are a single use disinfectant product, clinically proven for surface disinfection and cleaning of non-invasive medical devices. From disinfecting objects to wiping down hard surfaces and equipment, a Clinell universal wipe will kill at least 99.999%* of germs, making Clinell wipes the most effective antimicrobial product on the market. This revolutionary formula contains several different biocides. Each biocide has a different mechanism of action, reducing the risk of germs developing resistance.

Uses for Clinell Universal Wipes

The Clinell wipes contain a unique, patented antimicrobial formula with added detergent, giving them a number of different uses including the removal of dirt and dust from surfaces.

Disinfectant Wipes

Clinell single use disinfectant wipes can be used to clean hard surfaces, medical equipment and any other areas on the ward in hospital. As the Clinell wipes are single use, this reduces the risk of microbial cross contamination between medical devices and shared surfaces.

Detergent

Many hospitals currently purchase disinfectant wipes and detergent wipes separately. This is not required when using a Clinell wipe from the universal range. This reduces cost, waste and most importantly time, when it comes to minimising contamination.

Antimicrobial Hand Wipes

Whilst the Clinell Disinfectant and Detergent formula is proven to kill at least 99.999% of germs, the formula remains gentle enough to be used on skin, meaning the wipes represent great value and time saving properties.

*ACCORDING TO EUROPEAN STANDARD TESTS: EN1275, EN1276, EN12054, EN14245, EN14561, EN14562 & EN14563.

Q: 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 (unless you are using the macerateable version)
Do not flush

Q: Why does it have a single use symbol on a pack of 200 wipes?

Each individual wipe is single use. Clinell Universal Wipes are single use to prevent the possibility of microbial cross contamination from one medical device to another.

Q: Why is the product referred to as a Universal Wipe?

This is because the wipe functions as a disinfectant and detergent wipe simultaneously and can be used on hands, all surfaces and all ward based equipment.

Q: Why is it important to clean in addition to disinfecting?

Dirt creates a barrier between the surface and the disinfectant on the wipe which can prevent the surface from being disinfected. The dirt could prevent the disinfectant getting in contact with the germs or the dirt could neutralise the disinfectant whilst breaking it down. Our wipes are designed to remove the dirt and disinfect at the same time. Many hospitals currently purchase detergent and disinfectant wipes as 2 separate products - Clinell Universal Wipes will perform both jobs at the same time.

Q: What are the active ingredients in Clinell Universal Wipes?

The formulation in Clinell Universal Wipes is a patented antimicrobial solution developed by GAMA Healthcare's Research & Development Department. It contains several different biocides including 2 quaternary ammonium compounds and 1 polymeric biguanide designed to work synergistically. This means that the effectiveness of the biocides is increased by many multiples when working in tandem together. This ensures a wide antimicrobial activity and a high kill count with this wipe. In addition the wipe contains surfactant to act as a detergent, glycol for a moisturizing effect on skin and a chelating agent.

Q: Does using disinfectants increase the chance of resistance occurring with germs?

Because there are several different biocides and each functions to kill germs by using a different mechanism of action, there is no risk to resistance occurring over long term use.

Q: What does the term "contact time" mean?

This is the time required for the disinfectant to act on germs and is basically 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 varies greatly with different germs for example, the contact time for MRSA is 10 seconds.

Q: 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 what happens when the contact time is reached and how much a particular germ has been killed. It would not be much use to have a fast contact time and a low kill count that allowed the majority of the microbe to be still active. This reduction in germs or kill count is expressed in a log form and put simply, the log number is the number of 9s that is 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%) of most germ groups in the contact time specified.

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

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

Q: 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 to prevent 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 done on the run off from the wipe rather then the formulation itself. GAMA Healthcare is one of the very few companiesthat ensures the testing is done on the run off from the wipes. We only use accredited laboratories to do this testing.

Q: What can you use the Universal Wipes on?

The wipe is designed to be safe to use on all surfaces and will not damage rubbers, plastics or metals. Alcohol based wipes tend to damage materials after prolonged use but this will not occur with Clinell Universal Wipes. It can also be used on all non-invasive equipment as well as hands. If you are unsure about whether the wipes are suitable to use on a particular object or surface please call the sales team and we will be more than happy to assist.Always follow medical equipment manufacturers cleaning procedures and guidelines.

Q: What products do these wipes replace?

This wipe will replace all detergent and disinfectantsurface wipes (except for Sporicidal Wipes) and by doing so will help standardize wipe usage in a hospital. This saves time, money and helps to prevent confusion with the type of wipe that is required. It will also replace hand wipes, medical device wipes (non-invasive medical devices) and surface cleaners.

Q: What germs do the Universal Wipes kill?

In addition to knowing the contact time and kill count, it is very important to know which germs the formulation released from the wipe, is active against. The testing behind Clinell Universal Wipes is very extensive and has been conducted at many UK accredited laboratories. The wipes have been shown to be active against many germ groups, although this does not include spores.

This includes all gram positive and gram negative bacteria, all enveloped viruses, various non enveloped viruses, fungi, protozoa and mycobacteria. The kill count and contact time will vary depending on which particular organism is being targeted.

Q: Where was the testing conducted for this wipe?

Many tests have been conducted on this wipe including EN tests such as EN1276, EN12054 and EN1500. In addition, the wipes have also been tested specifically against certain pathogens. The wipes have been dermatologically tested and have also been tested against a wide variety of materials which also show their safety. The tests mentioned have been conducted at various UK laboratories or institutions, all of which are accredited and the test data that we publish outlines the test method and all results are validated.

Q: What are the Wall Mounted Dispensers?

These are colour coded, plastic or wire dispensers that can be drilled permanently onto a wall and are designed to hold the large flow wrap packs, tubs and buckets of Clinell Universal Wipes, the 140 flow wrap pack of Clinell Universal Maceratable Wipes.

The Wall Mounted Dispensers are available for free to all NHS hospitals in the UK and installation (which is another free service performed by GAMA) can be arranged, but this must be booked with the GAMA Healthcare Sales Team and Regulatory Team. The dispensers can be ordered directly through GAMA Healthcare.

Q: Are there any special disposal requirements?

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

Q: How would you summarise the benefits of Clinell Universal Wipes?
