MB-10 The Perfect Disinfectant
At Quip Labs, as we know better than anybody that there’s no such thing as a “perfect disinfectant.” But some hit a little bit closer to the mark than others. When looking for a disinfectant that can do everything, the most important factors are going to be efficacy claims, simplicity of use and safety, material compatibility, and contact time.
One thing that we at Quip Labs look for when recommending a disinfectant across a variety of industries is broad efficacy. MB-10 tablets still maintain the broadest, most complete EPA label available in the research industry. This label contains all major common pathogens that are the focus of animal research, pharmaceutical, veterinary work and other related industries. MB-10 Tablet contact times range from 1 minute for HIV to 60 minutes to achieve full sterility.
With its comprehensive label claims, many of our customers are surprised the MB-10 Tablets are extremely safe as well. They require only standard PPE such as gloves and goggles.
It’s also important to mention that, because it’s a tablet and not a ready-to-use solution, MB-10 is the most cost-effective disinfectant to ship and the most convenient to store at your facility. There’s no need to move large drums or heavy cases, devote great amounts of space for storage or pay a fortune for transportation. One sleeve holds 40 6.0 gram tablets or 75 1.5 gram tablets, which is equal to 40 gallons or 75 quarts of solution.
When it comes to material compatibility, MB-10 Tablets far exceed the old standards of chlorine-based or chlorine-dioxide based disinfectants. You can read our blog article on MB-10 Tablets’ material compatibility here.
Finally, MB-10 is extremely simple to train your team to use. Simply drop and MB-10 tablet into a labeled quart or gallon container, wait 10 minutes for the tablet to fully dissolve and then begin your normal disinfection process. Throw in a 3-year shelf life and pricing at just $0.04 an ounce, and you can see why it has quickly become the most popular disinfectant we offer.
Sure, there may not be such a thing as a perfect disinfectant, but when it comes to efficacy claims, ease-of-use, safety, contact times, and material compatibility, it’s hard to beat MB-10 tablets.
