For years, many research facilities have relied on liquid bleach-filled footbaths to reduce cross-contamination. However, liquid bleach has three primary issues:
- Liquid bleach breaks down outsoles of footwear.
- Liquid bleach efficacy can’t be easily verified.
- Liquids can be a slipping hazard.
That’s why Quip Labs and Sterilex have joined forces to create ViveStep™. Based on proprietary PerQuat® chemistry, ViveStep is applied dry and designed to sanitize floors and boots—and reduce cross-contamination—in animal research facilities including those housing cows, swine, primates and rabbits.
