Dental Advisor and Dr. John Molinari: Environmental Surface Cleaning Investigation
Dr. John Molinari tests alcohol and QUAT surface cleaners, as well as, OPTIM 1: One-Step Cleaner & Intermediate Disinfectant.
OPTIM 1 (broad-spectrum virucide) vs Quat Low-Alcohol Disinfectant (broad-spectrum virucide) (CA)
Comparing OPTIM 1 Cleaner-Disinfectant Wipes vs. a leading quat low-alcohol disinfectant using tiles stained with dried blood. Examining the disinfectant wipes’ cleaning and blood protein removal capabilities. OPTIM 1 is the only disinfectant wipe to successfully clean and remove blood proteins, in one single application.
Both products tested have broad-spectrum virucidal claims meaning they both have been proven efficacy against hard to kill non-enveloped virus. OPTIM 1 has a 1-minute contact time against hard to kill viruses; the quat low-alcohol disinfectant has a 3-minute contact time against hard to kill viruses.
