COVER STORY

Why disinfect when you can Tristel?
Since it was first discovered that microbes cause infection, there has been a continued search for methods to destroy them. Some of the earliest weapons developed, phenolics for example, have been withdrawn for safety reasons. The remaining solutions that we rely on today – such as quaternary ammonium compounds, hypochlorites and chlorine – all have their drawbacks but continue to be used due to the limited choices available. Tristel’s chlorine dioxide chemistry represents something better.
