Ethanol Solutions

Ethanol Solutions can be used in a multitude of different laboratory functions, from cleaning to sterilisation procedures.  Alcohols like ethanol are known to be optimally batericidal between concentrations of 50% to 80%.  They work by denaturing proteins, affecting cell membranes, enzymes and enzymatic binding sites.  They also have a lytic effect on the phosphor-glycerol lipid bi layer of bacterial membranes.

Alcohols represent a number of substances, which most rapidly and effectively reduce the number of microorganisms on surfaces.  They are micro-biocides against bacteria including mycobacteria fungi and non-lipid containing viruses.

Ethanol has broad-spectrum bactericide properties and is prepared to a 70% v/v absolute alcohol concentration in our spray formula, which is both convenient and easy to use.
