Welcome back to the Dispotech blog

 

Never as in recent months had we heard so much said about hand sanitizers and alcohol-based solutions for disinfecting hands to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. In today's article, written with help from a news article published on medicalnewstoday.com, once again we will discuss hand sanitizers and their importance - also in view of scientific discoveries that support their use in such a delicate moment of our history. Enjoy!

 

While waiting for a vaccine to help us fight Covid-19 infection, hygiene remains our most important ally. Washing hands often with soap and/or sanitizing them with alcohol-based solutions and sanitizing gels is one of the most effective remedies to prevent the spread of infection through the mucous membranes of the eyes and nose. If before there was little scientific literature on the subject, recently conducted tests confirm the effectiveness of hand sanitizers at fighting Coronavirus. Scientists in Germany and Switzerland conducted experiments on two types of sanitizers. Their composition was as follows:

Sanitizer 1:

  • Ethanol
  • Glycerine
  • Hydrogen peroxide.

 

Sanitizer 2:

  • Isopropanol
  • Glycerine
  • Hydrogen peroxide.

 

Research scientists exposed virus particles to both disinfectant solutions for 30 seconds with the result that the created formulations in fact "inactivated" the virus. Research was led by a professor from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany), Stephanie Pfänder, of the Department of Molecular and Medical Virology. The professor confirmed that "the formulas recommended by the WHO inactivate the virus after 30 seconds".

This very good news, however, clashes with the difficulty of finding these solutions in large quantities for everyone's health. This new study is therefore a basic document from which to start for all the pharmacies and hospitals that want to make their own internally - following the guidelines indicated by science and researchers.

 

Considering the importance of hand sanitizers and the need to be able to find them everywhere we go, Dispotech has created HAND GEL DISPOPOINT: a stand for dispensing hand sanitizing gel perfect for companies and offices.
