The benefits of AdvantaClear Surface Disinfectant


How this surface disinfectant is taking infection control to the next level.

Dentists know that one of the most important things in their day-to-day life is gaining and obtaining their patients’ trust. Patients must fully trust that the doctor and other healthcare professionals will provide their desired end result, and they must also feel secure in knowing that their health is in good hands.

Maintaining a sanitary space in which to work is a priority for every dental practice, but it goes far beyond instrument management. While instruments must be sterilized, the surfaces clinicians work on and around must be sanitized, too.

Hu-Friedy, a company that specializes in instrument management systems, hand hygiene products and cleaning products for every aspect of the dental office, is now coming out with a surface disinfectant that will work on practically every surface in the operatory, from plastics to stainless steel.

“Hu-Friedy has been a key player in the infection prevention market with high-quality products,” says Senior Product Manager of IMS and Infection Prevention at Hu-Friedy Holly Way. “While we continue to expand in the infection prevention categories, adding surface disinfectants is a natural next step. It also goes hand in hand to help expand our current infection prevention offering.”

AdvantaClear kills a broad spectrum of disease-causing microorganisms in one minute, and it is designed to be compatible with a wide range of surfaces, such as acrylic, aluminum, brass, copper, stainless steel, chrome and plastic, Way says. 

“It’s a convenient, ready-to-use, intermediate-level disinfectant designed to clean and disinfect surfaces while working fast and effectively to kill a broad spectrum of disease-causing microorganisms, including HIV-1, HBV, HCV, MRSA, tuberculosis, the influenza A virus (H1N1), salmonella enterica, ESBL, E. coli and other pathogens,” she says.

And because it’s fragrance free, it eliminates odor-causing bacteria without masking it with another scent.

Since it kills most bacteria, fungi and viruses within a minute, it doesn’t take any extra time to help protect your team and your patients. And its low alcohol formula comes with two major benefits: It disinfects without affixing blood and soil to surfaces, and it cleans bright plastics without the cloudy residue that high-alcohol formulas leave behind.

“As an industry leader in infection prevention, Hu-Friedy is excited to expand our infection prevention offerings while introducing a surface disinfectant that we stand behind,” Way says.

AdvantaClear Surface Disinfectant became available for purchase in March of this year.
