Tristel Sporicidal Wipes

Tristel Sporicidal Wipes are designed specifically for the high-level disinfection of non-lumened medical devices. They are non-woven wipes impregnated with Tristel Base solution (citric acid). Tristel’s proprietary chlorine dioxide chemistry is generated by applying Tristel Activator Foam (sodium chlorite) onto the wipe.

Tristel Sporicidal Wipes can be included in the Tristel Quality Audit Trail to record the complete decontamination process.

They are CE Marked and TGA approved as a Class IIb Medical Device.

Product facts and notices

Important information for all applications and uses:
  • The Sporicidal Wipe is only for use on non-lumened, heat sensitive, re-useable medical devices.
  • Do not use if the Sporicidal Wipe sachet has been damaged.
  • Pre-clean the surface of the medical device with the Pre-Clean Wipe before using the Sporicidal Wipe. As with all decontamination processes, thorough pre-cleaning of the surface to remove soil and organic matter is an essential first step.
Step 1
Disinfect hands and wear a new pair of gloves.
Step 2
Take one Sporicidal Wipe sachet.
Step 3
Tear the sachet, remove the wipe, unfold it and lay out in the
palm of your hand.
Step 4
Take the lid off the Activator Foam bottle. If the Activator Foam
bottle is being used for the first time, depress the pump two to
four times to prime the foamer. The first output from the foam
bottle can be left on the wipe, to be followed by two or four
complete pumps*. The Activator Foam bottle is then primed for
subsequent wipes.
* If you are using TRIO25, apply four measures of Activator Foam
onto the Sporicidal Wipe.
If you are using TRIO50, apply two measures of Activator Foam
onto the Sporicidal Wipe.
Step 5
Scrunch together 15 seconds to activate. Ensure that the wipe
is evenly covered with foam. Presence of ‘chlorine like’ odour
confirms that the wipe is ready to use.
Step 6
Wipe the surface of the medical device until it has been covered
with Tristel. All areas of the surface must come into contact with
the wipe at least once.
Step 7
Once the entire surface has been wiped and covered with Tristel,
place the instrument in the clean area and wait 30 seconds.
Step 8
Dispose of the wipe to clinical waste
