PDI Receives Promising Testing Results of Sani-Cloth® Plus Wipes Against SARS-COV-2

Categories: Press Release October 13, 2020

PDI has generated data showing its Sani-Cloth® Plus wipes are effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. According to the data, the wipes demonstrated a 3-log reduction against the virus. The wipes were tested in compliance with “Disinfectants for Use on Environmental Surfaces, Guidance for Efficacy Testing,” the EPA’s threshold for deeming a disinfectant effective.(The data is intended to be submitted to the EPA for review to include claims of disinfection against the virus on the label.)

Microbac Laboratories, Inc., an independent laboratory that performs environmental, food, and life science testing for businesses, performed the efficacy testing using a multi-step process. First, the lab applied the virus to a surface and let it dry. Then, they wiped the surface with a Sani-Cloth® Plus wipe, recovered the residual liquid, and applied the liquid to cells in culture. How viable the cells remained told Microbac how effective the cloth was in inactivating the virus.
