MBS MedTech Germicidal Wipes – What are they?

MBS MedTech Germicidal Wipes are a pre-moistened non-woven durable wipe containing a quaternary/alcohol based solution. These MBS Germicidal Wipes are recommended for use in hospitals and other critical care areas where the control of the hazards of cross-contamination between treated surfaces is required.

MedTech Germicidal Wipes are also designed to be compatible with hard nonporous surfaces and equipment made of stainless steel, plastic, Formica® laminate, glass and more.

Some organisms are removed from the surface by thoroughly wiping the surface with the wipe. Most remaining organisms are killed within two (2) minutes by exposure to the liquid in the wipe.

TOXICITY Ratings for MBS MedTech Germicidal Wipes

ACUTE ORAL TOXICITY STUDY OF GERMICIDAL DISPOSABLE WIPE – Conclusion: A single-dose of Germicidal Disposable Wipe solution was administered and observed for 14 days. Based on the results of this study, Germicidal Disposable Wipe has an acute oral toxicity LD50 greater than 5 g/kg of body weight.

PRIMARY EYE IRRITATION OF GERMICIDAL DISPOSABLE WIPE – Conclusion: All eye irritation cleared successfully within the respective timed observation period resulting in no permanent eye damage or irritation. In accordance with the OPPTS/OECD Guidelines, Germicidal Disposable Wipe would be classified as Toxicity Category II in unwashed eyes.

ACUTE DERMAL TOXICITY 0F GERMICIDAL DISPOSABLE WIPE – Conclusion: Following the single dermal administration, the subjects were observed for 14 days. Under the conditions of this test, the acute dermal LD50 was found to be greater than 2 g/kg of body weight.

PRIMARY DERMAL IRRITATION 0F GERMICIDAL DISPOSABLE WIPE – Conclusion: The subjects were exposed to the moist towelette with an occlusive wrap for a total of 72 hours. Under the conditions of this study, no dermal irritation was evident at 72 hours.
