Our Sterile 70% Isopropanol (IPA) contains 70% by volume USP grade Isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol) with 30% water for injection (WFI). To ensure sterility, this solution is submicron filtered, filled into cleaned containers, double-bagged and gamma-irradiated.
Choose a stream delivery for precise application or coarse spray for larger application areas. Fully assembled, ready-to-use applicator/container; no unpacking, handling or attachment of a separate spray head is required.
Isopropyl alcohol (IUPAC name propan-2-ol), also called isopropanol or dimethyl carbinol, is a compound with the chemical formula C3H8O or C3H7OH or CH3CHOHCH3 (sometimes represented as i-PrOH). It is a colorless, flammable chemical compound with a strong odor. As a propyl group linked to a hydroxyl group, it is the simplest example of a secondary alcohol, where the alcohol carbon atom is attached to two other carbon atoms, sometimes shown as (CH3)2CHOH. It is a structural isomer of 1-propanol. It has a wide variety of industrial and household uses, and is a common ingredient in chemicals such as antiseptics, disinfectants and detergents.
70% isopropyl alcohol is used for disinfection of hands and equipment surface and surgical devices. 70% solution of isopropyl alcohol acts as a disinfectant killing all surface microorganisms. 70 % isopropyl alcohol solution kills microorganisms by dissolving the plasma membrane of the cell wall. Plasma membrane of gram negative bacteria consist of thin layer of peptidoglycon that easily destroyed by the alcohol.
Water plays key important role which used to denature the proteins of cell membrane and acts as a catalyst in the reaction. Contact time of the alcohol with the organism also play an important role. A 70% solution of alcohol takes more time in evaporation from the surface, increasing the contact time. Therefore, 70% isopropyl alcohol fulfills the both requirements.
Also available is the ACTASter closed system sprayer.
Ordinary spray bottles pull potentially contaminated air in the bottle with every pump. Air that is now coming in contact with your sterile solution inside the bottle.
Our closed system bag in the bottle technology prevents the alcohol inside the bottle from coming in contact with outside air. The alcohol is suspended inside the bag, and air pulled into the bottle by the sprayer remains outside the bag, preventing contamination and guaranteeing sterility.
The gamma sterilization process uses Cobalt 60 radiation to kill microorganisms on a variety of different products.Processing with gamma irradiation yields quick turnaround time, easily penetrating packaging and product, and is ideal for many types of materials.
The treatment of medical devices by gamma processing has been one of the principal methods of sterilization in the healthcare industry since the introduction of the concept of single use, sterile, disposable medical devices in the 1960s.
This simple, proven process is safe, reliable, and highly effective at treating single-use medical devices. With the ability to penetrate products while sealed in their final packaging, gamma irradiation supports the manufacturing and distribution process by facilitating final packaged product as well as raw materials, whilst still ensuring full sterility of the product.
