DuPont Biosecurity: Featured Products
DuPont™ Personal Biosecurity KitsOnce one employee gets ill with a virus, they all can. That’s why DuPont offers the Personal Biosecurity Kit. The DuPont™ Personal Biosecurity Kit contains technologies chosen by medical and industrial hygiene specialists for their effectiveness and ease-of-use in helping to reduce the risk of viral spread among your employees.
DuPont™ RelyOn® / RelyOn® 2 oz. Antiseptic Hand Spray or Individual Wipes
Hand contact is a very easy way to transmit pathogens. This antiseptic spray is a convenient means to sanitize hands when soap and water are not available. This will help reduce the spread of germs when the antiseptic is used after coming in contact with ill patients or communal surfaces like doorknobs and faucets.
This hard, nonporous surface disinfectant was chosen for its proven effectiveness against the influenza A virus, its long shelf life, as well as portability and compatibility with surfaces. Infectious diseases result from the rapid spread of viruses. For this reason it is critical to choose the right virucide and disinfectant. Remember, just touching a contaminated hard surface can spread some viruses. Keeping frequently touched areas as sanitary as possible is vital. DuPont™ RelyOn™ MDC can be used on items such as:
Tables and desks
As with all disinfectants, always read and follow the label instructions.
DuPont™ Tyvek® CoverallsOne part of a containment plan is to prevent transmission via clothing. DuPont™ Tyvek® Coveralls, in use with masks and gloves, can help in containment since they are meant to be disposed of after one use -- reducing the risk that a virus or bacteria will be passed on. They also provide excellent barriers to dry particulates and resist viral penetration. The coveralls should be used whenever cleaning large or potentially contaminated areas. The Department of Health & Human Services has even selected DuPont™ Tyvek® Coveralls for the National Preparedness Stockpile Program.
DuPont™ Virkon® S Virkon® S is the multipurpose virucidal disinfectant with the greatest numbers of EPA-registered claims against pathogens affecting domestic and companion animals. Virkon® S is a balanced, stabilized blend of peroxygen compounds, surfactant, organic acids, and inorganic buffer. Virkon® S is recommended for use as a hard surface disinfectant in livestock production and transportation facilities. Virkon® S delivers 99.9999% kill of numerous pathogens including 31 bacterial strains, 58 viruses, and 6 fungi with no evidence of resistance, eliminating the need to rotate disinfectants to avoid resistance buildup . >> More
