HOCL for Healthcare Systems
Hypochlorous Acid is well-known as a powerful and safe disinfectant agent that effectively controls contamination of viral, bacterial and fungal transmission. It is a powerful oxidizing agent. In aqueous solution, it dissociates into H+ and OCl–, denaturing and aggregating proteins. HOCl also destroys viruses by chlorination, by forming chloramines and nitrogen-centered radicals. This results in single and double-stranded DNA breaks, rendering the nucleic acid useless, and the virus harmless.Hypochlorous acid is also known as nature's most reliable disinfectant. It is a naturally occurring chemical that is produced by our own white blood cells to fight off pathogens. Outside of the body, HOCL is produced by an anolyte generator through an electrolysis process using salt and water.
Many properties contribute to why HOCL may be the disinfectant of choice in the healthcare setting:
- Easy-to-use and has multiple applications
