- Tristel has welcomed a recent study by Cardiff University published in American Journal of Infection Control which concludes that commercially available detergent wipes are inconsistent in their ability to remove spores of bacteria from hospital surfaces following a 10 second wipe. Tristel's range of infection prevention products for hospitals have been developed specifically to disinfect medical instruments, using a proprietary chlorine dioxide chemistry clinically proven to be effective against the most common bacteria, micro-bacteria, viruses and fungi as well as being effective at a sporicidal level.

This chemistry has been applied to Tristel's range of surfaces products so that the same effectiveness can be achieved on hospital surfaces, the area that this study shows to be ineffectively cleaned when only detergent wipes are used.
