Prolonged protection with JET PRO

Surface disinfectants cannot be used every minute of every day and the NHS needs infection prevention solutions that last longer.

A major source of cross-contamination and infection are frequently touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, bed rails, elevator buttons and light switches. Not only SARS-CoV-2, but many other infection risks such as Clostridioides difficile and Bacillus subtilis pose a challenge. Hospitals have stepped up infection control measures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But, even after completing disinfection procedures, it can frustratingly be just moments after that frequently touched surfaces are re-contaminated. For surfaces touched more regularly, there is no lasting protection for staff and patients. 

Keeping frequently touched surfaces microbe-free for longer

Across every treatment room and patient waiting area, disinfection products now take pride of place for quick accessibility. However, whether considering valuable NHS staff’s time or growing sustainability concerns, the best solution for surface disinfection procedures is not to increase orders of pre-wetted plastic wipes; using more to cater for frequently touched surfaces. Instead of adding additional plastic wipes to trolleys, treatment rooms, and waiting areas, a solution should be used that is as effective as it is eco-conscious. After all, we cannot use surface disinfectants every minute of every day. 

Lasting protection, less waste

JET PRO delivers sporicidal foam to frequently touched surfaces and kills bacteria and enveloped viruses for up to eight hours, after just one application with your chosen wipe. Using powerful proprietary chlorine dioxide (ClO2) chemistry, JET PRO delivers a stream of sporicidal foam – killing microorganisms in a one-minute contact time. 

The long-lasting protection technology, made of a proprietary polymer, has active components to absorb and attach disinfectant to surfaces for proven prolonged disinfection. 

The sustainable option for surfaces

Procurement figures show the NHS bought over 4 ½ million surface wipes in one year, pre-pandemic. In real terms, that equates to 400 tonnes of single-use plastic surface wipes thrown away - approximately the weight of four Blue Whales. 

Cutting ties with pre-wetted plastic wipes, JET PRO separates the ClO2 chemistry from the wipe until the point of use with EN 16615 compliance. Wipes can be chosen with sustainability and practicality in mind, without sacrificing EN 17126-compliant sporicidal efficacy.
