Dentistry Today


GC America’s COEfect MinuteWipes and COEfect MinuteSpray disinfectant products are specially formulated with a low-toxicity rating and will not damage common surfaces, instruments, or equipment found in dental offices and other healthcare environments.

The COEfect MinuteWipes effectively clean and disinfect dental operatories, sterilization bays, and other potentially contaminated areas in less time than other products with longer kill rates or outdated formulations, according to the company. This one-step surface disinfectant features an ethanol base without any fragrance.

Also, the MinuteWipes are US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Registered as an effective bactericide, virucide, tuberculocide, and fungicide. Their 9- by 7-inch area and polyester nonwoven spunlace material are designed to effectively spread the disinfectant solution and absorb excess bioburden, playing a key role in infection control protocols.

The COEfect MinuteSpray also can be used to clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces, instruments, and equipment in the dental operatory. It has an ethanol base and has been laboratory tested as well. Additionally, it is EPA Registered as an effective bactericide, virucide, tuberculocide, and fungicide for a one-minute kill time of 25 pathogens. And, it is odor-free.
