Texwipe Sterile and Sterilisable Products

For cleaning aseptic areas

Texwipe products clean aseptic cleanrooms quickly and easily without compromising the sterile nature of those environments. Sterile 70% isopropanol, when applied with the appropriate wiper substrate, is effective for one-step disinfection of relatively clean surfaces and is excellent for the final rinsing and residue removal step of many critical cleaning protocols.

Purchasing pre-sterilised products such as Texwipe's sterile TechniSat® pre-wetted wipers and sterile isopropanol in spray bottles eliminates the need to repack, document and validate.

  • Texwipe sterile pre-wetted wipers and sterile 70% isopropanol are gamma irradiated to a 10-6 sterility assurance level.
  • Each sterile Texwipe product is accompanied by lot-specific Certificates of Processing and Compliance.
  • Expiry dates are marked on each bag or bottle.

Non-sterile Texwipe mops, wipers and swabs can be sterilised if materials of construction are compatible with methods of sterilisation such as autoclaving, gamma irradiation, chemical disinfection, vapourised hydrogen peroxide (VHP), ethylene oxide (ETO) and electron beam radiation.

Texwipe Sterile TechniSat® Wipers

Sterile TechniSat® is constructed from a hydroentangled polyester/cellulose blend wiper that is pre-wetted with 70% isopropanol and packaged in a resealable flexpack. Each package is gamma irradiated to a 10–6 Sterility Assurance Level. Sterile TechniSat® is used for alcohol wiping in sterile environments such as pharmaceutical aseptic fill areas, biotechnology manufacturing facilities, microbiological laboratories, sterile suites and prep rooms. The wipers are packaged in resealable flexpacks ideal for cleaning applications requiring minimum dispenser size. Pre-wetted wipers are withdrawn through an opening incorporating a resealable label to prevent solvent evaporation. TechniSat® flexpacks are sheathed in a sealed outer bag for proper introduction into the cleanroom.

Texwipe dry and pre-wetted sterile wipers are available in a variety of materials and sizes. Contact BACS for more information.

Texwipe Recommendations for Sterilising Non-Sterile Mops, Wipers and Swabs

Non-sterile products can be autoclaved if materials are compatible with high-pressure steam. Most Texwipe wipers and swabs are autoclavable, but they do need to be repacked into breathable packaging and validated by the end user. Autoclaving is a practical option when different quantities are needed or when kits are put together. Other sterilisation methods such as gamma irradiation, chemical disinfection, vapourised hydrogen peroxide (VHP), ethylene oxide (ETO) and electron beam radiation can be used but have some drawbacks and may be incompatible with materials of construction.
