MASS™ Medical Storage recommends using quaternary ammonium compounds for regular disinfecting.
This low-level disinfectant is highly recommended for general housekeeping of medical storage cabinets and other non-critical items.
Quaternary ammonium compounds are bactericidal, fungicidal, and virucidal against lipophilic (enveloped) viruses.
At hospital-strength concentration, quaternary ammonium compounds can destroy HIV, hepatitis B and C, influenza, parvovirus, and more.
Ensure maximum effectiveness by adhering to the disinfectant manufacturer’s recommended contact time.
As with cleaning, bleach is not a recommended disinfectant, as surfaces exposed to bleach will stain and oxidize.
Do not use abrasive cleaning materials such as steel wool, powder products, or synthetic abrasives.
Should it be necessary to scrub your stainless steel cart or cabinet surface, be sure to wipe parallel to the direction of the glazing, using as little pressure as possible.
Bleach is harmful to all cart and cabinet surfaces, but harms stainless steel in a harsher, quicker manner and its use should be carefully avoided.
Please refer to your owner’s manual to determine if bleach can be used on components such as bins, wire baskets, and scope holders.
