For years, dealing with dangerous chemicals was a known and necessary job hazard for any cleaning professional. But now, through a deep understanding of chemistry and physics, PathoSans is changing the game. PathoSans ElectroChemically-Activated (ECA) PathoCide solution eliminates harmful chemicals and disinfects surfaces in a safe, simple, and effective way.
1. PathoCide is Safe
PathoCide disinfectant is people-friendly, performing at a low-toxicity level compared to bleach and other common chemical disinfectants. Per OSHA and the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), PathoCide is a Category IV product (least toxic), while bleach is a Category I (most toxic).
Another popular disinfectant, quaternary ammonium compounds or “quats”, is linked to a number of health concerns. In 2017, researchers at UC Davis, found quats likely impaired the function of mitochondria and the hormone estrogen.
PathoCide is safe
Exposure to harsh cleaners and disinfecting chemicals is a major cause of injuries among cleaning professionals. The peer-reviewed journal, WORK: A Journal of Prevention, Assessment & Rehabilitation cited 35 studies of cleaning workers showing they commonly experience health problems including skin diseases “associated with exposure to cleaning agents, wet work, and rubber latex.”
PathoCide consists of mainly water with 200ppm hypochlorous acid, an active ingredient concentration commonly used for sanitizing food-contact surfaces and dairy processing equipment.. It’s also a low-VOC, non-irritating solution that is dispensed ready-to-use (RTU) at a preset dilution to limit user exposure.
2. PathoCide is Simple
PathoCide is simple
Most disinfectants require careful mixing, and an adherence to precise dilution. They require specific storage, safety, and disposal procedures, and they have a very short shelf life. On-site generated PathoCide is simple. It’s dispensed RTU at a preset dilution, and needs no special storage or handling. Our disinfectant has a 30-day shelf life, and can be safely disposed of down the drain without harm to the environment.
3. PathoCide is Effective
PathoCide is effective
Traditional disinfectants require that users apply them to surfaces and keep the surfaces wet for the required effective contact times of 5-20 minutes. But PathoCide shortens contact times to seconds for many pathogens of concern per the hard surface time-kill test based on ASTM E1153.
The following are the short dwell times needed using PathoCide to dispatch the following infectious microbes:
- Campylobacter jejuni − 10 Seconds
- Listeria monocytogenes − 10 Seconds
- Salmonella enterica − 10 Seconds
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa − 10 Seconds
- MRSA − 10 Seconds
- Norovirus − 30 seconds
Your cleaning staff has a hard enough job as it is. Make disinfecting safe, simple and effective. Say good-bye to toxic disinfectants, and hello to PathoSans PathoCide disinfectant.
