PORTAGE, Mich. — Stryker announced the North American impending release of SideKick Disinfecting Wipes on February 9, 2018 through social media. SideKick is Stryker’s first cleaning and disinfecting wipe that is 100% compatible with Stryker’s EMS cots, chairs and fasteners. It is tuberculocidal, bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal with a two-minute wet contact time.
In the healthcare environment today, the high-touch surfaces surrounding patients are at-risk areas for harboring viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. SideKick is an easy-to-use wipe that is both convenient and highly effective at disinfecting pre-cleaned, hard, nonporous surfaces with its two-minute wet contact time. Its broad-spectrum efficacy is tuberculocidal, bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal.
SideKick is tested 100% compatible on 200+ materials used on Stryker’s EMS cots, chairs and fasteners.1 It is both an effective cleaner and disinfectant. SideKick has a neutral pH of 7.6. Because SideKick is a ready-to-use pre-moistened wipe formulation, there is no mess or potential for chemical mixing errors.
These wipes will be available in the United States and can be purchased through your Stryker EMS Account Manager.
