Metrex announces the launch of an all-new ready-to-use surface disinfection product, CaviCide1. CaviCide1 is the only one-step, low-alcohol surface disinfectant offering a 1-minute TB kill claim, materials compatibility plus more than 25 other clinically relevant organism kill claims, including norovirus and Acinetobacter baumannii. The formulation enables CaviCide1 to be both an effective cleaner and an effective disinfectant.

CaviCide1 is the result of years of research and development based off of customer feedback," says Todd Norbe, president of Metrex.  "We are extremely excited to enable our customers to do their jobs with greater ease and peace of mind as we continue to work at protecting people within the healthcare environment."
