How Does BioProtect Protection Work?

The active ingredient in BioProtect polymerizes to all surfaces and is both colorless and odorless.

Think of BioProtect as a layer of electrically charged swords.  When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine sword punctures the cell membrane and the remnants are then electrocuted.

Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial does not lose it’s strength and the sword is now ready for the next cell to contact it.  (NOTE: Normal cleaning of the treated surfaces is necessary in order for the BioProtect   antimicrobials to continue their effectiveness.  Dirt buildup,  paint, dead microbes, etc. will cover the treatment prohibiting it from killing microorganisms.)

ACTIVELY MONITORING AIR, SURFACES AND WATER HYGIENE ARE ESSENTIAL TO PROACTIVE INFECTION CONTROL PLAN

journal of environmental protection coverIf you don’t actively monitor the sources of contamination in air, water and surfaces in your building, quite simply, you aren’t doing your job as it relates to proactive infection control.

We recently were asked to consult with a hospital about the air quality in the building. The request came as a result of a problem that arose. Only then did it register there were issues they needed to address. Unfortunately, this reactive approach can cost lives and money. This particular hospital didn’t view air as a potential source for infection. In fact, the leaders had no idea what filter standards were recommended by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). That was their first problem, which led to others. The Joint Commission wants all hospitals for follow industry standards. It is time to get serious about infection control.

A study that appeared recently in the Journal of Environmental Protection titled “Indoor Air Quality Real-Time Monitoring Result of Pathology Department concluded that “we must take effective measures to control the concentration of harmful gases . . .” The air quality changes constantly and that requires constant monitoring, just as it does on surfaces and in water. Better to address the potential problems before they become larger and more difficult to correct. Do you monitor your air, water and surface hygiene?
