Hospital Grade Hand Sanitiser Australia
Frequently Asked Questions about Alpha Medical Solutions
The difference between regular hand sanitiser and hospital-grade hand sanitiser is defined by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration. That is Australia’s medical products regulatory body that approves which hand sanitisers are classified as hospital-grade hand sanitisers and which are not.
The classification involves testing of different hand sanitisers to determine if they are worthy of being used in a hospital setting. TGA thus determines the quality and efficacy against microorganisms in a hospital setting as claimed by the manufacturer.
Regular hand sanitisers will not have been tested by the TGA, so their efficacy is not guaranteed. As such, they cannot be reliably used in a hospital. You can buy hospital-grade sanitiser for cleaning and sanitising your hands to have the full assurance of effectiveness against bacteria and viruses.
Through our day to day activities, and especially during the flu, you will likely come into contact with contaminated surfaces, objects or sick people. These surfaces, in turn, contaminate your hands with bacteria and viruses that cause infection - this happens if you touch your mouth, nose or eyes.
Using hand sanitisers eliminates the risk of contracting an infection. These products are made with highly concentrated alcohol solutions which kill harmful microorganisms. Hand sanitisers are also useful due to their portability. Instead of carrying soap and water everywhere you go, it is much easier to carry a hand sanitiser with you to use as needed.
For a brand of hand sanitiser to be effective against disease-causing microorganisms, it should contain a certain percentage of alcohol content by volume. Effective sanitisers must have at least 70 percent isopropyl or 60 percent ethanol content. Such effective sanitisers include the Microshield Hand Sanitiser sold by Alpha Medical.
For hospital-grade hand sanitiser, the product must be tested by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration to corroborate its effectiveness against a wider range of more resistant bacteria and viruses as found in a hospital setting. Such sanitisers will need to be stronger and effective against a broader range of microorganisms.
