An infection prevention company, the entire purpose of Tristel Solutions is to prevent the transmission of microbes from one object or person to another. It achieves this by applying a very powerful biocidal chemistry – chlorine dioxide – to the target environmental surface or medical device.
It operates in 14 countries around the globe with around 200 employees and claims to be one of a few companies worldwide that can be regarded as an exclusively infection-prevention business.
Its mission is most relevant to hospitals, where the risk of infection to individuals is highest. Its two key areas of focus in the hospital are the high-level disinfection of medical devices, where the medical device disinfectants product range is branded Tristel; and the sporicidal disinfection of environmental surfaces, with the surface disinfectants product range branded Cache.
