What is ULTRA?
ULTRA is a world class high level sporicidal disinfectant technology offering rapid, safe and effective disinfection across a range of industries from healthcare to education establishments to food processing sites.
The technology within the ULTRA product is based on a mass of peracids with an adjuvant effect to enhance its antimicrobial activity. Peracids produce destructive hydroxyl free radicals which are strong oxidising agents. The antimicrobial function of ULTRA is similar to other high-level sporicidal disinfectants such as peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide whose primary mechanism of action is also achieved by oxidation as a result of the production of hydroxyl free radicals.
What has it been designed for?
ULTRA has been developed for high level disinfection of hard and soft surfaces, environments, equipment and air. It is to be used in areas In which the reduction of bioburden is needed to be achieved, to enable the interruption of key transmission pathways (surfaces and air) and reduce the risk of cross infection and contamination.
ULTRA has also been specifically developed to be sprayed through our electrostatic sprayers, to be used at the disinfection stage of the cleaning process.
How does ULTRA effect microbes?
The hydroxyl free radicals produced by ULTRA are responsible for its potent anmicrobial activity. Hydroxyl free radicals have multiple points of action on microbes, which include:
• Attacking membrane lipids
• Breaking apart nucleic acids (DNA and RNA)
• Denaturing proteins
• Disrupting cell wall permeability
• Oxidation of sulfhydryl and sulphur bonds in proteins, enzymes and other metabolites.
Proteins, lipids and nucleic are the essential components of bacteria, fungi, viruses and bacterial spores and significant damage to one or more of these components is often fatal for the microbe. The destructive nature of the hydroxyl free radicals coupled with multiple points of acon result in ULTRA having a lethal effect on microbes within seconds / minutes of initial contact.
How effective is ULTRA?
ULTRA is an ultra‐high level, broad spectrum disinfectant which is effective against all microbial classes up to and including bacterial spores.
