Disinfection is imperative for healthcare settings to provide safe care and avoid nosocomial infections. Ecoloxtechprovides a safe, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly option for all healthcare settings.

Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL),a potent disinfectant, has emerged as a game-changer in this regard.

This presentation delves into the substantial benefits of using HOCL in healthcare settings.


High-Efficacy Disinfection


HOCLis a powerful disinfectant that can rapidly eliminate a broad range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores, and significantly reduce nosocomial infections. For example, HIV, Tb, Influenza, hepatitis, Norovirus, SARS-CoV-2, and MRSA.

HOCL is made by electrolyzing salt & water, this allows it to be cost-effective and environmentally friendly. HOCl exists naturally in your body. It's created by white blood cells as a defense system against infection


Safe and Non-Toxic


What makes Ecoloxtech HOCL different than other disinfectants is its non-toxic, non-irritant, and non-corrosive properties

HOCL is part of your immune system, making it risk-free for healthcare workers, especially those with respiratory or skin issues

Its safety profile allows for extensive use in ALL healthcare settings; including long-term care facilities, and operating theaters, patient rooms, critical care units, and even ambulances.


Environmentally Friendly


HOCL is a natural disinfectant allowing it to deactivate pathogens and safely break down into a saline solution that poses no harm to the environment.

This characteristic aligns well with the growing global emphasis on sustainability and responsible practices in healthcare settings.


Rapid Action


HOCLacts quickly to eliminate pathogens, minimizing the time required for disinfection. It leaves no toxic residue and does not require a post-rinse or a secondary wipe off. Simply Spray and Forget.

This characteristic is crucial in high-traffic healthcare settings, allowing more rapid turnover of patient rooms and equipment, thus boosting operational efficiency.




HOCL can be used for a wide variety of applications within healthcare settings.


It's suitable for surface disinfection, instrument sterilization, wound care, and even asan antimicrobial hand rinse.


Additionally, it can be atomized or fogged to disinfect air in patient care areas, waiting rooms, or in enclosed spaces like elevators.


Compliant with Regulations


HOCLcan help healthcare facilities comply with stringent infection control guidelines.


It can be integrated into existing cleaning protocols, reinforcing the overall disinfection strategy and contributing to a safer healthcare environment.



Cost-Effective Solution


HOCLcan be generated on-site using simple electrolysis equipment, making it a cost- effective solution for healthcare settings. The maintenance department will daily refill the salt brine tank, measure and log the concentration, less than 20 minutes of work but thousands of $$ in savings

On-site production eliminates logistical challenges related to frequent procurement, storage, and disposal of commercial disinfectants, leading to significant cost savings.


Compliance with Infection Control Guidelines


The incorporation of HOCLcan support the healthcare industry in meeting or even exceeding infection control guidelines.


By significantly reducing the risk of cross-contamination and healthcare-associated infections, healthcare facilities can provide a safer and cleaner environment for their patients.

EcoloxTech HOCLAS200 is an EPA-Registered Disinfectant with Registration number 101110-1




HOCL is an effective option for infection control in all healthcare environments and a promising solution to the ever-present challenges of infection control in healthcare.


It combines powerful disinfection properties with safety, environmental sustainability, and cost-effectiveness.

By incorporating HOCLinto their hygiene and safety protocols, healthcare facilities can enhance infection control, improve patient and staff safety, increase operational efficiency, and contribute to protecting the environment for a more
sustainable future.
