Frequently Asked Questions

For our EPA-regulated products, such as Sani-Cloth® brand products, room temperature is defined as an average temperature of 25◦ C (77◦ F) and within a temperature range of 15◦ C to 30◦ C (59◦ F to 86◦ F). For some our FDA-regulated products, such as Prevantics® brand products, "controlled room temperature" indicates a temperature maintained thermostatically that encompasses the usual customary working environment of 20◦ C to 25◦ C (68◦ F to 77◦ F). SOURCE: USP 36-NF 31 General Notices and Requirements (August 1, 2013 First Supplements) Section 10.30.50. Room Temperature - "Room temperature" indicates the temperature prevailing in a working area. Section 10.30.60. Controlled Room Temperature
No. Prevantics products contain 3.15% Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) which should be left on the skin to provide continued antimicrobial activity.
The back and forth strokes provide friction which allows for deeper penetration of the antiseptic into the cracks and fissures of the skin in the epidermis.
An occlusive dressing is a non-permeable dressing, which means that no air or moisture can penetrate in or out. A semi-occlusive (semi-permeable, transparent) dressing allows the wound to "breathe" (air can penetrate in and out) but at the same time, protects the wound from outside liquids. Commonly used dressings in vascular access are semi-occlusive, transparent dressings.
Dry sites are areas where there are no skin folds, such as the abdomen and forearm, and no evidence of moisture caused by diaphoresis. Wet sites are areas with skin folds, such as the groin area, under arms, and under breasts, as well as areas that may be moist due to diaphoresis.
