NOSOCID PAA

High level disinfectant based on peracetic acid

NOSOCID PAA is a high level disinfectant especially formulated for the cold sterilization of thermosensitive instruments and endoscopes. It is based on a synergy of peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide.

It combines a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity, rapid contact times and an enhanced material compatibility.

It is recommended for all types of endoscopes (bronchoscopes, gastroscopes, duodenoscopes, naso-laryngo-pharyngoscopes, laparoscopes, etc.), surgical instruments, anesthetic and heat- sensitive medical devices.

NOSOCID PAA does not fix proteins, eliminates biofilm and is effective even in the presence of organic materials.

Formulated with very effective corrosion inhibitors, it is safe for most common endoscope materials.

Properties

  • Ready-to-use mixed solution
  • Effective even with the presence of proteins
  • Compatible with most common sensible materials
  • Compatible with heat-sensitive instruments
  • Rapid action: full spectrum in 5 min.
  • Stability of the ready-to-use solution: 15 days
  • Easy checking of PAA concentration with test strips
  • No aldehydes, safe for the user
  • Decomposes in water and oxygen
