MENTOR, OHIO – August 31, 2021- STERIS announced the addition of Vesta-Syde SQ 64 st Ready-to-Use Disinfectant Wipes to its comprehensive disinfectant product line, offering customers a simple, well-controlled application method for the disinfection of cleanroom surfaces. “The Vesta-Syde SQ family of products delivers superior efficacy in both concentrate and ready-to-use formats with the same quaternary ammonium active ingredient. This provides our Customers with the flexibility they need to optimize their microbial contamination control programs,” said Elaine Sartain, Vice President of Global Marketing and Technical Services.

Vesta-Syde SQ 64 st Ready-to-Use (RTU) Disinfectant Wipes use an innovative system that combines cleanroom quality wipes packaged with a separate internal pouch containing the quaternary ammonium active ingredient. The internal pouch allows for maximum chemical stability while offering a simple, convenient, and consistent method to saturate the wipes. By simply rolling the package of wipes, the internal pouch of liquid opens and quickly saturates the wipes. This unique packaging system creates saturated Vesta-Syde SQ 64 st RTU Disinfectant Wipes with minimal preparation effort. The wipes are low linting with a knitted polyester construction and ultrasonically sealed edges, making them ideal for use in critical areas. Each package of wipes is double bagged and gamma irradiated to facilitate introduction into cleanroom areas. Every lot is USP sterility tested with complete lot traceability to meet quality assurance and quality control needs.

With the addition of Vesta-Syde SQ 64 st RTU Disinfectant Wipes, Customers can select different disinfectant product formats with the same quaternary ammonium active ingredient to meet their specific application needs. Selecting from a range of Vesta-Syde SQ formats including concentrate, ready-to-use, and wipes, allows maximum flexibility while minimizing disinfectant efficacy testing, errors in chemistry preparation, and may eliminate the need to validate disinfectant preparation procedures. Vesta-Syde SQ 64 st RTU Disinfectant Wipes are currently available in Europe. Registrations in other regions of the world are in process. These products have an extensive documentation package to meet your validation objectives and are supported by the STERIS Technical Services team for individualized application and validation assistance.
