Safe and effective hand disinfection

A Hand

The most common reason for poor hand hygiene in the veterinary workplace or any animal care environment, excluding 'forgetting', is that the products available irritate or dry out the skin.

When clean hands are the single most important factor in preventing the spread of dangerous germs and antibiotic resistance in health care settings1 shouldn’t you have products available that everyone will be happy to use?

F10 Hand Hygiene products are proven effective, yet mild, to ensure optimal skin disinfection for you and your patients or pets.

Hand Hygiene products have an irritation grading of zero

F10’s zero irritation level combined with broad spectrum of kill makes the F10 Hand Hygiene range the natural first choice in any animal care facility.

Their efficacy and safety has proven them to be an excellent alternative to preparations containing chlorhexidine or iodine which can causes skin irritation problems.

Hand Hygiene products have fast acting contact times

Contact time is a critical factor in determining the efficacy of surface acting agents and yet very few hand hygiene products are specific about this. Research2 has shown that, in practice, contact times can commonly be as little as 15 seconds. All F10 hand hygiene products have been tested to GLP3 standard and achieve a >log 2 reduction of gram positive bacteria (e.g. staphylococcus spp.) in 15 seconds, and 30 seconds for gram negative (e.g. Clostridum difficile, Pseudomonas spp. and yeasts.)

Hand Hygiene products have a broad spectrum of kill

All F10 hand hygiene products are based on the F10 core actives of quaternary ammonium and biguinide compound with non-toxic ampholytic surfactants and sequestrants which together provide a fast acting broad spectrum of kill. Effective against gram postive and gram negative bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeasts. Independently verified test data is available upon request.
