The Battle Against Superbugs: A Call for Effective Sanitation Solutions

In recent times, the world has witnessed a concerning rise in antimicrobial resistance (AMR), a phenomenon that poses a significant threat to human health. A recent study conducted by the University of Plymouth shed light on the efficacy of bleach in clinical settings against notorious superbugs like C.diff. Victor Adendorff, the managing director of Scientific Sanitation Solutions (SSS), has responded to these findings with a clarion call for more effective sanitation solutions in healthcare settings.

“The health and safety of patients and healthcare professionals in clinical settings, especially those in secondary care where superbugs like C.diff have been a persistent concern, should always remain our top priority,”

Victor Adendorff, Managing director of Scientific Sanitation Solutions (SSS).

For far too long, healthcare facilities have relied on bleach, often chlorine-based, to clean scrubs and surfaces. While bleach is effective against a significant portion of bacteria and viruses, it falls short of providing a comprehensive solution.

Adendorff went on to point out that in order to truly address this critical issue, there needs to be a more robust accreditation and procurement process in place. This process would ensure that only the most effective disinfectants are used in the most critical environments. As Dr. Tina Joshi rightly argues, we must have “disinfectants and guidelines that work in line with bacterial evolution.”

Acknowledging the challenge is only the beginning; what follows is a steep climb towards a safer and healthier future. It is imperative that superbugs like C.diff cannot tolerate the recommended disinfection concentrations, no matter the cost. Failing to do so will only lead to an increase in the threat to human health, with potentially catastrophic consequences for the healthcare system as a whole.

Adendorff stressed that the healthcare sector must now actively seek alternatives to traditional cleaning agents and, crucially, understand their effectiveness after dilution. Dilution can significantly reduce the potency of disinfectants, and this reduction is measured by the log rating, the official measure of potency in disinfectants.

One solution that Adendorff highlighted is SANI-99™️, a LOG 7 Medical Grade disinfectant. This rating means that SANI-99™️ effectively kills 99.99995% of germs and harmful bacteria. This level of efficacy is a game-changer in the battle against superbugs, providing healthcare facilities with a powerful tool to maintain a safe and sterile environment.

Protecting UK’s Native Poultry from Avian Influenza with DEFRA-Approved Disinfectants

In the UK, the specter of avian influenza looms large, posing a severe threat to native poultry breeds such as chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys, according to a report from the Rare Breeds Survival Trust highlighted in a recent Guardian article. This alarming situation necessitates immediate and decisive action to safeguard these vital breeds. The disease, which originated in Asian poultry farms, has now escalated to affect mammals and even shown instances in humans, though human-to-human transmission has not been observed. The article emphasizes the crucial role of stringent biosecurity measures, including the use of DEFRA-approved disinfectants like SANI-99™ for AGRI, in combating the spread of this notifiable disease. For poultry farmers and breed conservationists, the stakes could not be higher as they race to protect the UK’s agricultural heritage and prevent catastrophic losses.
