Medicom ProSurface Disinfectant Kills Wuhan Coronavirus (CNW Group/AMD Medicom Inc.)

Medicom recently launched ProSurface disinfectant, which is effective against the Wuhan Coronavirus, killing it in just one minute when used in accordance with label instructions. Available in wipes and spray, ProSurface works in a single step and acts faster than most disinfectant brands, requiring the treated surface to remain visibly wet for just 60 seconds.

"Disinfectants are the latest category in the extensive portfolio of infection control products Medicom offers to help protect healthcare professionals and their patients," states Ouriel Levy, Executive Vice President, Commercial and Global President, Dental. "Medicom was founded over 30 years ago to help protect healthcare professionals during the worldwide HIV crisis. Today, we are proud to offer a full range of infection control solutions, including our latest ProSurface disinfectant line that is proven to be effective against the Wuhan coronavirus," added Levy.

Public health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), are issuing recommendations to help prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. Medicom offers a range of relevant products, such as medical grade masks, gowns and protective apparel that will be essential as these recommendations are implemented.

Medicom N95 respirator and Level 3 face masks

Medicom manufactures a complete line of face masks that comply with FDA requirements for Class II medical devices. The range includes NIOSH-approved SafeBasics® N95 respirator masks with a 95% filter efficiency level, as well as several product lines under the SafeMask® brand, including Level 3 masks, the highest level of protection available according to ASTM standards.

Medicom isolation gowns and protective apparel

In addition to face masks, personal protection equipment (PPE) such as protective apparel plays an important role in preventing the spread of viruses like the Wuhan coronavirus. Medicom offers a range of SafeBasics® isolation gowns, shoe covers and disposable SMS jackets and lab coats under the SafeWear® brand.
