How does Aseptix prove the efficacy of its products?

Disinfection is all about trust. In a world where compliance is key, trust is good - but proof is better. That is why we build the confidence of our clients with scientific evidence supporting our claims.

Are all disinfectants effective in the presence of organic soil?

Organic Matter (food or human fluid) form a barrier that can either increase the time required to reach the germs or may prevent their contact entirely. Further, some soils can react with a disinfectant and reduce the efficacy. To overcome this problem, Aseptix® products have been tested in the presence in clean as well as so-called dirty conditions, in which proteins have been added to the test. In the presences of heavy soil loads, it is preferable to clean the surface with a detergent cleaner with agitation by a mop, brush or cloth prior to disinfecting to get down to the pathogens.

fold faq

If disinfectants are not generally recognized as good cleaners, how can Aseptix products be considered good cleaners?

Common disinfecting products including Chlorine (bleach), phenols, quaternary ammonium compounds and water remove between 12 and 16% of organic matter on a surface. When you clean using these materials, you actually are putting most of the dirt into a solution that is then re-distributed over a surface where it re-dries, creating a layer of organic material. Aseptix products are formulated with advanced and biodegradable surfactants and wetting agents, making them excellent cleaners in addition to being excellent disinfectants.

What are the advantages of using Aseptix´ products as a Cleaner & Disinfectant?

Aseptix offers unique formulations that have the perfect balance between Speed of Germicidal Efficacy, Cleaning Efficacy, Safety for Users and Occupants, and Environmental profile. It is easy to make a strong disinfectant to kill pathogens, however, it is difficult to create one that won’t eat the surfaces it’s put on or harm the user that has to apply it or the environment that has to absorb it. This is the challenge for every chemical manufacturer. Aseptix´ products provide exceptional Cleaning Properties even in the presence of dried organics and inorganics due to the oxidizing effect of the Hi-speed H2O2TM composition and the synergy of the ingredients in the formula. Aseptix surface disinfectants have an excellent Safety & Environmental Profile for the user and the environment. The products are non-irritating to eyes & skin, free of solvents, there are no toxic ingredients in the formula and do not leave any residual chemistry on the surface once dried.

What is the difference between Hi-speed H²O² ™ and the Hydrogen Peroxide that can be purchased at a Drug Store?

Hydrogen Peroxide purchased at a Drug Store is a 3% solution mixed with water. It has some germicidal properties, but in no way such that it can effectively kill bacteria and other germs in an efficient and safe way. To effectively kill, the percentage of hydrogen peroxide should be much higher (at least 5-6%), at which level safety for the user, surfaces it is used on and the environment are compromised. Hi-speed H²O²  is an accelerated form of hydrogen peroxide, which has powerful germicidal properties at very low concentrations, ensuring effectiveness without compromising safety. In the available formulations, Aseptix products feature powerful cleaning as well as potent disinfection characteristics.

  • A unique combination
    The unique combination of friendliness and effectiveness enables the use of our products in new and existing applications, without the hazards of traditional disinfectants.
fold faq

What can I expect from the material compatibility of Aseptix products?

Disinfectants should be harsh on micro-organisms. Developing an effective disinfectant is a 

challenge on itself. However, that is not where the challenge stops. Disinfectants should be able to be used on all types of materials that can be found in medical environments, without damaging them. Not only because many equipment is expensive and should be in impeccable state at all times to give patients the care they require.  But also because aggressive chemicals can impair surfaces, often almost invisibly, creating little dents and crevices that preempt effective disinfection. Aseptix disinfectants are developed to be compatible with most materials, including alcohol sensitive disinfectants. Examples of materials that the products can be used on:   

  • Stainless steel 
  • Glass 
  • Glazed tiles 
  • Ceramics 
  • Lacquered surfaces 
  • Acrylics 
  • Polyethylene, Polypropylene 
  • Polycarbonate 
  • PET 
  • HDPE, MDPE, LDPE 
  • PVC 
  • Perspex (PMMA) 
  • Polystyrene 
  • Trespa 
  • ABS 

However, do not use on marble, copper, brass or other surfaces sensitive to oxidative agents. Surface compatibility study available upon request.

fold faq

Do Aseptix disinfectants cause antimicrobial resistance?

Due to the oxidative mechanism of action, our Hi-speed H2O2TM  based products cause no antimicrobial resistance – contrary to quats and phenols. Our disinfectants help solve infection challenges today, without creating problems for tomorrow.

fold faq

Some products leave a residue. The manufacturers claim that this residue is important for continued 'biocidal' activity. Is that a good thing?

Residual left by antimicrobials only are effective while wet. In addition these residuals may contribute to chemical resistant strains of microorganisms.

What is Hi-speed H²O² ™?

One of the most important differentiators of Aseptix’ technology is Hi-speed H²O²  (high speed hydrogen peroxide). This proprietary technology combines hydrogen peroxide with safe and biodegradable ingredients, boosting its natural disinfection power and stabilizing it. 

fold faq

How do products based on Hi-speed H²O² ™ differ from standard peroxide based disinfectants?

These new, stable and accelerated hydrogen peroxide (Hi-speed H²O²  ) based formulas disinfect quickly, and can be worked up to kill a broad spectrum of organisms. Even including bacterial spores such as Clostridium difficile. Our ready to use products, and our in-use dilutions of concentrated products do not carry any warning labels. Nonetheless, our Hi-speed H²O²   based products meet and exceed a large number of European Norms for disinfection, outperforming most other disinfectants.

fold faq

What are the advantages of Hi-speed H²O² ™ based disinfectants?

  • Kill spectrum
    Aseptix products kill a wide spectrum of micro-organisms quickly, also in dirty conditions. Compare Aseptix to competitor contact times, and you will notice the difference - and we achieve this without using harsh chemicals.
  • Speed 
    User friendliness and realistic contact times enable practical compliance. Traditional disinfectants require long, and practically unfeasible contact times. Aseptix works fast and effective.
  • Safety
    Our ready to use surface disinfectants and in-use concentrations do not carry the orange hazard labels you will see on most disinfectants’ packaging. This implies extreme user friendliness and no use precautions for these products.
  • Convenience
    Our products do not only disinfect quickly, they clean as well: all in one step, and without leaving active residues. Leaving a streakless surface in the process. And-unlike quat-based disinfectants- our products are micro-fiber compatible.
  • Environment
    Environmentally responsible disinfection products? We claim we have them: the active ingredient in our surface disinfectants (hydrogen peroxide) breaks down into oxygen and water. The other ingredients we use are all readily biodegradable.

What trends does Aseptix build on?

A growing and aging population with more awareness for pathogens and illnesses caused by micro-organisms. Consumers are looking for products that counter pathogens, but at the same time require environmentally friendly and safe products to increase health and well being. Antimicrobial claims on products are more and more carefully regulated across the globe. Regulators continuously increase pressure on safety and performance requirements. Several currently used active ingredients are outright unsafe, or have questionable tox profiles and/or cause proven antimicrobial resistance. “Antimicrobial” will increasingly become a hotter topic. There is clear need for products fulfilling the regulatory requirements, while being safe for users and environment, not cause resistance and do what they are supposed to do: kill germs. This calls for breakthrough innovations and proprietary technology that Aseptix can provide.

What can the Aseptix technology mean for your brand and product lines?

Numbers of studies show that balancing performance in antimicrobial products while limiting the impact on the environment has not been very successful. Reaching the necessary effectiveness simply harms the environment and not harming the environment doesn’t bring the necessary efficacy. We at Aseptix have developed proprietary technology that optimally combines performance and sustainability. Not using Chlorine, Triclosan, Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, Phenols or any other harmful ingredient and still offering the highest efficacy is proven in several studies by well known testing facilities. Consumer research from our customers clearly shows increased purchase intent with Aseptix-enabled claims as well as a high interest for “low tox”, “low chemicals” products.
