Eliminating single-use plastic wipes

Tristel has developed a proprietary dualchamber Capsule containing Base (citric acid) and Activator (sodium chlorite) solution. These are kept separate until the Capsule is burst and its contents diluted in 500ml of water to generate chlorine dioxide working solution for sporicidal surface disinfection.

By uncoupling the liquid from the spreader hospital staff now decide how much liquid to use and which spreader to employ, whether that be a paper towel, a microfibre mitt or a biodegradable dry wipe. According to Tristel, SHOT can disinfect an entire patient bed space compared to many pre-saturated plastic wipes. The SHOT Bottle and Doser are made of 100% reusable and recyclable polypropylene, and the Capsule is 100% recyclable. Tristel have also developed the SHOT Bot, a compact recycling container for empty capsules which are ground into pieces for the creation of new capsules.
