      What does the 21-day reuse claim on Prevention™ HLD8 mean?

      Prevention™ HLD8 can be reused for up to 21 days in a soaking tray, provided there is no visible dirt or particles, and that test strips are used to confirm there has been no loss of efficacy.


      Prevention™ HLD8 is a high-level disinfectant designed for tool and implement disinfection between clients. Prevention™ HLD8 is a ready-to-use solution, meaning that there is no dilution required, and it can be reused for up to 21 days.


      The solution should be poured into a soaking tray while disinfecting tools. In order to store it properly during the 21 day reuse period, please make sure you are storing it in the tray with a lid on it, out of direct sunlight, and in a temperature controlled room away from any heat sources.

      During the 21 days, you can reuse the solution to disinfect tools, however, please keep in mind that there should be no visible dirt or particles in the tray- this would be an indicator that the solution should be replaced.


      Additionally, you should be using test strips in the solution to confirm that there has been no loss of efficacy over time during the reuse period. When using the test strips, if they do not demonstrate a pass, this is another indicator that the solution should be replaced right away. Please note: the solution should never be topped up to try to achieve a correct reading on the test strip, rather it should be fully replaced with fresh solution.
