Alcohol (70% IPA and 70% Ethanol, Texwipe has both solutions)
Sterile Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA)
Sterile 70% Isopropanol contains 70% by volume USP-grade Isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol) and 30% USP-purified water. Texwipre provides a fully assembled, ready-to-use applicator/container no unpacking, handling or attachment of a separate spray head is required. The solution is 0.2 submicron filtered, filled into cleaned containers, double-bagged and gamma-irradiated. Each bottle is lot coded with an expiration date for easy recordkeeping. IPA may be used for general surface cleaning, for residue removing and for the wipe down for pass-through to controlled environments.
These alcohols are rapidly bactericidal rather than bacteriostatic against vegetative forms of bacteria; they also are tuberculocidal, fungicidal, and virucidal but do not destroy bacterial spores.
Customers can choose a stream delivery (for precise application) or course spray to apply solution to larger areas, available in 4 convenient sizes:
"World literature says Alcohol (ethanol) was examined against a variety of microorganisms such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa was killed in 10 seconds by all concentrations of ethanol from 30% to 100% (v/v), and Serratiamarcescens, E, coli and Salmonella typhosa were killed in 10 seconds by all concentrations of ethanol from 40% to 100%. Isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) is slightly more bactericidal than ethyl alcohol for E. coli and S. aureus 489.*" * Guideline for Disinfection and Sterilization in Healthcare Facilities, 2008" CDC.GOV
