Triple S Selected as Nationwide Distribution Partner for Sporicidal Disinfectant with 3-Minute C. Difficile Kill Claim

Sanotracin RTU represents an important step in the battle against Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs)

Triple S is pleased to announce that the company has been selected by BioMed Protect LLC, St. Louis, MO, to be the nationwide distribution partner for Sano- tracin RTU(TM) Sporicidal Disinfectant Cleaner, the only US EPA-registered one- step sporicidal disinfectant cleaner with a 3-minute kill claim against Clostridium difficile spores.

Clostridium difficile, also known as C. difficile or C. diff, is a bacterium that can cause symptoms ranging from diarrhea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon. Medical authorities have now recognized C. difficile as one of the most dangerous and fastest growing Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) in the US. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Pre-

KAIVAC_W-M_7.375x9.pdf 9/27/2012 10:08:37 AM

vention (CDC), C. difficile is linked to 14,000 deaths each year, with most infec- tions occurring in the process of receiving medical care.

The ability of C. difficile to form into a spore allows the organism to survive in the environment and on surfaces for weeks or

months. This presents a tremendous clean- ing challenge to infection control and envi- ronmental service directors. The CDC rec- ommends cleaning and disinfecting with an EPA-registered sporicidal disinfectant. Sanotracin RTU works within three min- utes of application against C. difficile and within 2 minutes against MRSA, CA- MRSA, VRE, E. coli, Salmonella, Staph, Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter Baumannii, and a broad range of other pathogens. Sanotracin RTU will be the corner- stone of a complete Triple S Healthcare Infection Control Program available from Triple S Member-Distributors that will in- clude SSS NexGen Microfiber, SSS Hand Hygiene, and the new SSS CleanSpec En- vironmental Surface Monitoring System.

The OmniFlex™ AutoVac™ is an automated high performance floor machine that rivals the performance of an autoscrubber – at a fraction of the cost! In fact, in tests performed by a major university, the AutoVac and autoscrubber both removed over 98% of targeted soil. Not bad when you consider that it costs about 90% less than an equivalently sized autoscrubber, and sometimes way less! Hard to believe? Stop by booth # 639 for a demo of the “Unscrubber.”

Seeing is believing. *Based on an actual advertised price of a 28” auto scrubber. Prices may vary.

Chicago Sanotracin RTU provides maximum

effectiveness without the risks of using bleach. Some of the bleach-associated risks include damage to surfaces, han- dling and mixing bleach by housekeeping staff, and respiratory issues for patients and staff. In addition, one-step Sanotracin RTU saves time and labor cost compared to bleach, which requires the surface to be rinsed. Sanotracin RTU leaves no film on surfaces.

“BioMed Protect selected Triple S to be the nationwide distribution partner for

Sanotracin RTU based on their compre- hensive network of distributors. The Sano- tracin line of products is the next genera- tion of sporicidal disinfectants. We were looking for a partner who could provide the needed training and support to users. As with other products in this category, there is no support for infection preven- tionists, environmental service directors or front-line staff when it comes to surface disinfection,” stated Mark Regna, BioMed Protect Vice President of Sales. “The key factor in our decision was the training and support that Triple S can offer to health- care facilities, with more than a 1,000 plus trained facility consultants who are focused on providing training, education and building relationships with healthcare facilities at the local, regional and national levels. Another key factor is the reach of Triple S with 175 local distribution facili- ties and three strategically placed regional distribution centers. The broad product offering that Triple S offers to environ- mental services for day-to-day operations provides a consolidated program for healthcare facilities. We look forward to this partnership and what it brings to the healthcare industry.”

Alan Sadler, President of Triple S, stat-

ed, “We are very excited about our oppor- tunity to partner with a technology leader like BioMed Protect. We believe BioMed Protect’s decision to select Triple S as their national distribution partner is a resound- ing validation of the effort and energy that we have invested in building the most efficient logistics platform married to a national network of facility maintenance solutions providers. We take great pride in knowing that our collaborative efforts will play a meaningful role in combating a very serious healthcare issue.” n
