Do I need to wipe off the Prevantics® antiseptic liquid from the skin after application?Show AnswerNo. Prevantics contains both 3.15% Chlorhexidine Gluconate and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol which should be left on the skin to provide continued antimicrobial activity.
Why are Prevantics® Skin Antiseptics applied using back and forth strokes?Show AnswerThe 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.
Some PDI products state "store at room temperature." What is the definition of room temperature?Show AnswerFor our EPA-regulated products, such as Sani-Cloth® and Sani-Prime™ 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 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).
