Press Release ( - OAKVILLE, ONTARIO - Jul 12, 2017 - Virox™ Technologies, Inc. the creators of the patented Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) technology announced the launch of a new high level disinfectant (HLD) – PREVENTION™ HLD8.  High level disinfectants are used widely used in the Alternate Care, Probeauty and Animal Health markets for reprocessing semi-critical medical devices, such as:  CPAP Masks; Endotracheal Tubes; Endoscopes; Nebulizers; Endoscopes; Otoscope Cones; Speculums; Ultrasound Probes, and other semi-critical devices. 

Many of these facilities encounter sensitivity issues with the most commonly used high level disinfectants.  PREVENTION™ HLD8 will provide these markets with an environmentally friendly, safer and easier to use product that is non-sensitizing and has virtually no inhalation risks for staff, patients, clients, or animals.

“Finally, there is no longer a need to compromise by using harsh chemistries to reprocess the semi-critical devices health professionals use every day.”

Randy Pilon, President, and CEO, Virox Technologies, Inc.

“The Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) formulation used in PREVENTION™ HLD8 was co-developed with STERIS Corporation,” says Randy Pilon, President, and CEO, Virox Technologies, Inc. “Being able to develop a formulation that provides the perfect balance between safety and efficacy is truly a breakthrough achievement.  We’re excited to bring this formulation to the markets outside of traditional healthcare facilities,” said Pilon. “Finally, there is no longer a need to compromise by using harsh chemistries to reprocess the semi-critical devices health professionals use every day.”

PREVENTION™ HLD8 is a 2% AHP® formulation that provides high level disinfection in only 8 minutes and can be re-used for up to 21 days.  In addition, no special venting or disposal measures are needed as the solution can be easily rinsed down the drain.  PREVENTION™ HLD8 is also non-staining, virtually odorless and leaves no toxic residues on devices after just one rinse.  According to Faraz Ahmadpour, Vice President, Open Innovation, “the oxidative action of our AHP® technology does not promote biofilm formation and has excellent materials compatibility with the semi-critical instruments and devices. ”

A chemical Indicator test strip (PREVENTION™ HLD8 Test Strip) and log charts are also available to verify and record the correct minimum effective hydrogen peroxide concentration each time reprocessing is performed.

PREVENTION™ HLD8 is sold exclusively in the United States.
