Hu-Friedy has announced the latest offering in its line of infection control products: AdvantaClear surface disinfectant.

Available as wipes, liquid, or spray, AdvantaClear features a one-minute kill time for 30 of the most common pathogens, including HIV-1, HBV, HCV, MRSA, influenza A virus (H1N1), Salmonella enterica, extended-spectrum b-lactamase (ESBL)-producing E. coli, and other pathogens with a two-minute kill time for tuberculosis (TB).

AdvantaClear expands Hu-Friedy's reach as a primary source of infection control products, which covers instrument processing, cleaning and sterilization monitoring, waterline cleaning, hand care, and now surface disinfection.

AdvantaClear is a convenient, ready-to-use intermediate-level disinfectant designed to clean and disinfect surfaces with a low-alcohol formula that will not affix blood or debris to surfaces. Its fragrance-free formula helps eliminate odor-causing bacteria with no harsh fragrance, making it less irritating to clinicians and patients alike. AdvantaClear is designed to be compatible with a wide range of surfaces, such as acrylic, aluminum, brass, copper, stainless steel, chrome, plastics, and more.

"Increasingly, the concept of performance is extending significantly beyond clinical patient outcomes," explained Jennifer Naylor, executive vice president of Hu-Friedy. "Today, performance has come to encompass productivity, efficiency, and safety. A key component of performing at your best in the dental practice is ensuring staff and patient safety through robust infection control measures. Surface disinfection plays a major role in infection prevention, which is why we felt strongly about developing the best product for the job. With one-minute kill times across a broad range of pathogens and superior surface compatibility, clinicians can feel confident that the surfaces in their operatory will be disinfected quickly and effectively."

AdvantaClear surface disinfectant is available as a spray, a ready-to-use liquid, or wipes (individually wrapped or in a 160-count canister). AdvantaClear products are available for sale in the United States from authorized Hu-Friedy representatives or dental distributors.
