Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01128

AcronymREAIPCIC

Proposal titleReliable & emphatic activity indicator products for cross infection control.

AbstractThe objective is to develop both product chemistry and means of production for a new

generation of impregnatedwipes for cross infection control capable of clearly indicating

when the wipe ceases to be effective. Such productswould be capable of making an

incremental contribution to hygiene maintenance and diase prevention in thehome,

healthcare and food chain.The research will create effective cross contamination control

products using a variety of chemical disinfectantsand indicators together with suitable non

woven substrates and the machinery to manufacture the finished product.The only existing

wipe with a built in indicator was invented 20 years ago by the proponent of this product

(USPatent 4311479). The advance in chemical technology should enable a new generation

of indicative wipes that aremuch more pathogen specific with quantitative indication of

effectiveness.With the increasing number of health problems caused by cross

contamination ranging fom Campylobacter jejunito E.coli O 157 and with the increasing

problem of antibiotic resistant pathogens there will be a considerableworld-wide niche

market for these products.
