Professional Healthcare FAQ's
Why is disinfection important in healthcare?
In professional healthcare settings (hospitals, dentists, care homes, etc) following strict disinfectant processes are super important! In these settings, there are a lot of different people coming in and out every day, sometimes carrying different illnesses, diseases, and bacteria that spread around the environment. Therefore, using an effective disinfectant and following a thorough decontamination process is necessary to minimize levels of bacteria and to reduce putting both users and workers who come into these settings at risk. All MedibLU UDF disinfectant products sold are perfect for use in healthcare settings as it has been approved for both surface and instrument disinfection for healthcare under Simplified Authorisation as it is

What type of disinfectant is most commonly used in the healthcare environment?
There is a wide range of chemicals used currently in professional healthcare settings. Commonly seen disinfectants include quaternary ammonium compounds and sodium
hypochlorite. However, we believe that this sector would significantly benefit from adopting MedibLU because the methodology of kill does not allow for the mutation of organisms, potentially helping to protect our limited armoury of antibiotics! Not only that, but these disinfectants can also be used for air, skin, surface, and instrument disinfection, and with being made from the safe stand most organic ingredients, MedibLU UDF disinfectants hold absolutely no risk to any being, like some currently used disinfect and chemicals may.
