Clinister Wet Tissue wipes, an alcohol-free, citrate-based surface disinfectant against bacteria and fungal contaminants, including avian influenza, has been launched in the city.
Clinister is the outcome of research conducted by a Japanese consortium comprising Matsushita Industrial Co Ltd, Separator System, Kougyou, Miyoshino Pharmaceutical Inc. and Nichi-in, Japan.
It is probably the world’s first alcohol-free disinfectant technology from Japan, now proven in India. It has been developed to provide a solution to contamination through the hand, consortium representatives said at a press briefing here on Monday.
Hand disinfection is one of the most important means to prevent infection spread in healthcare and domestic setups. Clinister is a non-alcohol based anti-microbial technology that cleanses all surfaces and makes them sterile. This has been proven in Indian conditions by Aurolab, one of the co-authoring institutes, they said.
By sterilising the surfaces, hand contamination is prevented, thereby making a significant impact on the spread of infection. One major advantage with Clinister is that with the material falling under food supplements by nature, its ingestion does not have any toxicity or adverse reaction, which makes this safe to use in any environment or situation, they pointed out.
