Steriplex

A unique combination of efficacy and safety, Steriplex represents the biggest breakthrough in infection prevention in over 130 years.

Steriplex is a revolutionary disinfectant that kills's the hardest to kill spores in under five minutes without bleach. It is a broad spectrum Sporicidal.  It is also Tuberculocidal, virucidal, fungicidal and kills bacteria in under 30 seconds.

Steriplex is so effective in killing the most difficult to kill microorganisms that it is the only EPA registered product to kill anthrax. In hospital clinical trials comparing Steriplex to bleach and other hospital grade disinfectants, Steriplex was the only disinfectant tested that achieved 100% kill on all microorganisms, on all surfaces tested.

Steriplex is the only sporidical disinfectant available with an HMIS (health rating) of zero. Steriplex has no toxic fumes, is not harmful to the skin or eyes and can even be applied without wearing gloves or a mask.

The unique chemical profile of Steriplex elevates efficacy and makes new protocols possible. Imagine being able to disinfect all surfaces within any environment quickly and safely. Aerosolizing is by far the most efficient way to apply a thin layer of liquid to any surface. The problem with most high-level disinfectants is that they are far too toxic, flammable and corrosive to be applied by spray application. With the very highest sporicidal kill and zero toxic fumes or corrosion, Steriplex can be applied in the most advanced mechanical spray devices to quickly and easily disinfect even the most complex surfaces. From floors to ceilings, chairs, Gym equipment, water sensitive equipment and everything in between. Steriplex does not require wipe up or a post rinse step. Once applied Steriplex dissipates from the air rapidly and leaves no toxic residues.

With simple spray application Steriplex achieves 360° sterilization of all surfaces quickly and safely and achieves total elimination of all C-diff spores, MRSA, TB, Norovirus and other dangerous microbes.

Steriplex 360° Touch-less is the future of disinfection.  Simple to use and proven effective.

Below you will find a list of bacteria and fungus commonly found in GYM environments.

KLEBSIELLA

What is it? 
A bacteria that is usually found in healthy human intestines and stool.

Symptoms
Klebsiella can result in a variety of infections, most commonly urinary tract infections and pneumonia, but in rarer cases blood infections and meningitis. The type of infection you get depends on how it enters your body (i.e. through your nose results in pneumonia).

How do you get it?
It's spread through contact, so any shared surfaces--cardio machines, workout mats, weights, water fountains and locker rooms.

E. COLI

What is it?
Escherichia Coli, commonly known as E. coli, is a common bacterium found in the intestines and stool. It's infamous for almost putting Jack in the Box out of business in 1993.

Symptoms
E. coli infections cause cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and can lead to pneumonia.

How do you get it?
You usually get it from eating contaminated food, but it's possible to catch it from tainted gym surfaces.

STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS

What is it?
Staphylococcus aureus, commonly known as staph, is a bacteria that mostly causes skin infections.

Symptoms
Staph infections are usually mild and include superficial rashes, pimples and/or boils on your skin. However, if the bacteria spreads and gets deeper into your skin, it can become a life-threatening infection such as pneumonia, sepsis or meningitis. Recently there have been reports of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a very aggressive form of Staph that's resistant to antibiotics, in gyms, but it's extremely rare.

How do you get it?
It's spread through contact, so it can be picked up through a shared towel or razor, exercise equipment surfaces and grips or skin-to-skin contact.

CANDIDA

What is it?
The most common culprit in fungal infections, this yeast-like fungus can lead to everything from athlete's foot to ringworm to jock itch in men and yeast infections in women.

How do you get it?
Contact. It loves warm, moist areas, so locker rooms, saunas, swimming pools and showers are the perfect environment.

Symptoms
Ringworm is usually marked by ring-shaped skin rashes, usually on your toes, sometimes on your palms and between your fingers. Athlete's foot gives you itchy, cracked, flaking and peeling skin between the toes or side of the foot, while jock itch causes a rash on your groin. If it's untreated, it can escalate to blisters and severely cracked skin.

STREPTOCOCCAL BACTERIA

What is it?
A type of bacteria that usually causes upper respiratory infections--strep throat. There are 20 different types of strep bacteria.

How do you get it?
It's very contagious and is spread through person-to-person contact, airborne droplets, doorknobs and other surfaces. Sweaty exercise equipment, saunas, locker rooms and drinking bottles can harbor strep.

Symptoms
Symptoms can range from mild throat infections to pneumonia. It can also cause skin infections such as impetigo, which causes blisters, and cellulitis, which affects deeper layers of skin.

INFLUENZA

What is it?
You probably call it the flu. It's a virus, which causes a nose, throat and lung infection.

How do you get it?
Through the air, so contained areas like airplanes, movie theaters and gyms are a great place to catch it. Breathe in the droplets from someone's coughs or sneezes, or get the virus on your hands and touch your mouth, nose, or eyes.

Symptoms
Fever, body aches, coughing, sneezing, chills, dizziness, flushed face, headache, lack of energy and, sometimes, nausea and vomiting that lasts between four and seven days.
