Prevention HLD8™ High-Level Disinfectant re-use label directions

March 12, 2020

The intent of this letter is to provide an official statement on behalf of Virox® Technologies on the correct usage of our Prevention HLD8TM high-level disinfectant.


It has come to our attention that some State Boards of Cosmetology throughout the United States advise, through their published guidelines, that disinfectant solutions used for instrument disinfection be disposed of daily. We agree that this is the correct process when EPA-registered disinfectants are used to reprocess tools. The recommendation to refresh high-level disinfectant products solutions daily should not apply; however, ensuring that high-level disinfectant solutions are discarded when appropriate is critical in any infection prevention protocol.
