    Clorox Healthcare® VersaSure™ Cleaner Disinfectant Wipes are Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered to kill 44 pathogens, including bacteria, viruses and fungi, in two minutes or less. The unique, low-odor, low-residue formula features patented technology that enhances quat activity on surfaces to deliver broader efficacy and faster kill times without co-actives.

    Clorox Healthcare® VersaSure™ Cleaner Disinfectant Wipes’ innovative new formula is said to provide:

    • Speed and strength against key pathogensVersaSure is EPA-registered to kill 44 microorganisms, including 14 multi-drug resistant pathogens, in two minutes or less. VersaSure is said to kill influenza viruses, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), measles, mumps and other viruses in 30 seconds and kill bacteria and fungi, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), Escherichia coli (E. coli), salmonella, mycobacterium bovis (TB) and Candida albicans, in two minutes.

    • Excellent esthetics and cleaning power: Patented alcohol-free quat technology and innovative wipe design are engineered to combine to provide excellent esthetics, wetness and cleaning power. The low-residue formula is designed for superior staff and patient comfort with no harsh chemical fumes or odors. Durable, low-linting wipes are textured for greater strength. Excellent wetness is said to provide greater surface coverage compared with competitor quat and quat-alcohol disinfectant wipes and assurance that treated surfaces will remain wet for the full contact time.

    • Convenient, compatible use: VersaSure wipes are ready to use, fast acting and compatible with a broad range of hard, non-porous surfaces found in healthcare settings. A variety of sizes, including multipurpose wipes in 85- and 150-count canisters and 30-count flat packs, and terminal wipes for everyday cleaning and disinfecting of large spaces, available in 110-count buckets and refill pouches, makes VersaSure convenient for both nurses and environmental services teams to use facility-wide.

    “Not all disinfectants are created equal and many don’t have the optimal balance of attributes to meet users’ needs. For example, a conventional quat or alcohol-based product might offer good compatibility but have limited kill claims or evaporate from surfaces before meeting the required contact time,” says Brian Thompson, department manager – R&D, Clorox Healthcare. “We believe healthcare facilities shouldn’t have to make those trade-offs and with VersaSure, they don’t. Our R&D teams refused to make compromises between efficacy, esthetics wetness and cleaning power, and today we are excited to offer a one-step, ‘use everywhere’ wipe with broad-spectrum efficacy healthcare facilities can trust.”
