Not necessarily. The Prevantics Device Swab can be used for both terminal disinfection of a needleless access site prior to use as well as in between each access. If clinicians follow all existing infection prevention and control measures for CLABSI prevention, such as hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment, and use of chlorhexidine-based skin antiseptics, then the use of an alcohol impregnated cap may not be clinically indicated. This would be evaluated by ongoing surveillance of CLABSI rates.

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 of 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).
