Original publication date 23/01/20.
Clinell Universal wipes are validated against EN14476. They were tested at Microbac Laboratory, a Biosafety Level 3 Laboratory in the USA. All three were tested against MERS-CoV, a closely-related, virulent strain of human coronavirus – not a surrogate.
60 second efficacy.
As this product is effective in 60 seconds, it’s important to understand contact time. Contact time is the length of time the surface being disinfected must remain wet for the disinfectant to work.
Clinell Universal Wipes are formulated to keep surfaces wet for the whole contact time. It’s important for users to remember to discard wipe they’re using as it becomes dry or soiled.
No pre-cleaning required.
Clinell Universal Wipes are single-step detergent/disinfectant wipes. That means they clean and disinfect in a single action and – unlike chlorine – that surfaces don't need to be pre-cleaned before disinfecting.
Used wipes should be disposed of in the clinical waste bin as per your infection control policy

Disclaimer: given the rapidly developing situation, it is not yet possible for disinfectant manufacturers to test against the exact COVID-19 strain, SARS-CoV-2. However, independent third-party tests have confirmed the efficacy of Clinell Universal, Clinell Sporicidal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Hand Wipes against MERS-CoV (a related strain of virulent human coronavirus) using international standard test methods. You can read the full report here. We will be testing our products against the COVID-19 strain once health authorities make the strain available.
I have been using Clinell wipes for almost two years and very happy with the product.
