A disinfectant that lasts for months and doesn’t wipe off even with regular cleaning has just been verified by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)
July 2021, In a world first, SW2™, has become the only product of its kind to be verified by a regulatory body to reduce germs by up to 98.5% over 15 weeks. SW2™ forms a protective coating to provide residual efficacy on surfaces. The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has listed SW2™ as a hospital-grade disinfectant effective against germs, bacteria and COVID-19.
This significant outcome was achieved through three-month pilots into the Australian Healthcare and Public Transport sectors and extensive independent lab testing that replicated real-world conditions.
SW2 enables continuous protection by forming an always-on protective coating that makes surfaces hostile to germs. This means that even 15 weeks after a single application, it is still delivering up to a 98.5% reduction in germs, even with regular cleaning.
When lab tested in harsh conditions SW2 outperforms all expectations. Following 1,620 simulated cleaning cycles, equivalent to 90 days on high touch surfaces such as door handles, SW2 was still delivering a 98.5%+ reduction against bacteria and Human Coronavirus. By comparison other “long-acting” products were removed from the tested surface after just 18 cleaning cycles.
Traditional disinfectants only provide momentary protection against germs. Once the product has dried, they are no longer effective and leave surfaces susceptible to recontamination when someone touches it, coughs or sneezes. SW2 breaks that cycle of infection with its always on protection.
The TGA has updated the Intended Purpose on the Australia Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) website to the following:
“SW2 is a Hospital-grade disinfectant against germs, bacteria and COVID-19. SW2 is a hard surface disinfectant that forms a protective coating to provide residual efficacy on surfaces to reduce germs by up to 98.5% over 15 weeks.”
SW2, exclusively distributed by Allied BioServices, can make environments safer by making surfaces continuously hygienic, enabling you to revert back to pre-COVID cleaning protocols and environmentally sustainable cleaning.
