Hu-Friedy announced the latest offering in its line of infection control products: AdvantaClear Surface Disinfectant. Available as wipes, liquid or spray, AdvantaClear features a one-minute kill time for 30 of the most common pathogens, including HIV-1, HBV, HCV, MRSA, Influenza A Virus (H1N1), Salmonella enterica, ESBL E. Coli, and other pathogens with a two-minute kill time for tuberculosis (TB). AdvantaClear expands Hu-Friedy's reach as a primary source of infection control products, which now covers instrument processing, cleaning and sterilization monitoring, waterline cleaning,and hand care as well as this new entry into surface disinfection.

"Increasingly, the concept of performance is extending significantly beyond clinical patient outcomes,'" explains Jennifer Naylor, executive vice president of Hu-Friedy. "Today, performance has come to encompass productivity, efficiency and safety. A key component of performing at your best in the dental practice is ensuring staff and patient safety through robust infection control measures. Surface disinfection plays a major role in infection prevention, which is why we felt strongly about developing the best product for the job. With one-minute kill times across a broad range of pathogens and superior surface compatibility, clinicians can feel confident that the surfaces in their operatory will be disinfected quickly and effectively."

Hu-Friedy has long been a leader in the dental infection control space. Recognizing that clean and safe surfaces are just as important as sterile instruments in the promotion of safe dentistry, Hu-Friedy developed the AdvantaClear line as a logical expansion of their already robust infection control offerings.

AdvantaClear Surface Disinfectant is available as a spray, a ready-to-use liquid or wipes (individually wrapped or in a 160-count canister). AdvantaClear products are immediately available for sale in the United States from authorized Hu-Friedy representatives or dental distributors.
