Clinell Universal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes are proven to be effective against the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), in a 30 second contact time. They have been tested according to EN14476 by an accredited, third-party laboratory.
COVID-19 was previously known as ‘novel coronavirus (nCoV)’ and ‘2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)’.
Choosing the right wipe
Clinell Universal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes are effective against the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) in just 30-seconds of contact time.
Clinell Sporicidal Wipes are fully virucidal. They're also effective against coronaviruses in 60-second contact time. Unless otherwise indicated, it’s not necessary to move up to Clinell Sporicidal Wipes to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Clinell Universal Wipes excel against coronavirus.
All three are validated against EN14476. They were tested at Microbac Laboratory, a third-party Biosafety Level 3 Laboratory in the USA (one of the few independent laboratories in the world accredited to conduct efficacy testing on the COVID-19 virus).
Clinell Universal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes were tested against SARS-CoV-2, the exact strain of human coronavirus that causes COVID-19 – not a surrogate.
Clinell Universal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes are effective against COVID-19 in 30 seconds. Clinell Sporicidal Wipes are proven effective against coronavirus in 60-seconds. That means it’s important to understand contact time. Contact time is the length of time the surface being disinfected must remain wet for the disinfectant to work.
Clinell Universal Wipes, Clinell Sporicidal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes are formulated to keep surfaces wet for the whole contact time. It’s important for users to remember to discard wipe they’re using as it becomes dry or soiled.
No pre-cleaning required
Clinell Universal Wipes, Clinell Sporicidal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes are single-step detergent/disinfectant wipes. That means they clean and disinfect in a single action.
Surfaces don't need to be pre-cleaned before disinfecting.
Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes have been proven to be as effective as soap & water. Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes are effective on visibly soiled hands.
