How safe is OPTIM 33TB?
Based on the EPA toxicity categorization of antimicrobial products that ranges from Category I (high toxicity) down to Category IV, OPTIM 33TB has the lowest toxicity category assigned of which precautionary warning label is not required.
This compares with Category II / III warning / caution statements for most leading brands of antimicrobial products.

- Why OPTIM?
- OPTIM –Personal Health and Safety Profile
- Areas of Use in the Medical Practice
- Optim’s AHP Technology – Recognized in North America
In every medical practice, the prevention of infectious disease represents a constant challenge. One such significant risk exists when environmental surfaces are not properly maintained, thereby creating a potential reservoir for pathogens. OPTIM 33 TB One-Step Disinfectant Cleaner offers the optimal infection control choice that helps you maintain a clean and safer working environment.
OPTIM 33 TB is formulated with AHP®*, a globally patented technology. In terms of disinfectant active ingredients, AHP is the 1st new disinfectant technology in 20 years, of among over 8,000 EPA registered disinfecting products. The active ingredient – 0.5% Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide – is a synergistic blend of commonly used, safe ingredients that, when combined with low levels of hydrogen peroxide, produces exceptional potency as a germicide and performance as a cleaner. These claims are all backed with governmental registrations and extensive third party analysis. Furthermore, AHP contains only those ingredients listed on the U.S.A. inert ingredients listings and the FDA GRAS listing (Generally Regarded As Safe), which contribute to an unsurpassed health, safety and environmental profile.
The Importance of Viruses
Today’s world is full of challenging viruses and bacteria. In the last 30 years, 30 new diseases have been diagnosed, one per year. Did you know that non-enveloped viruses such as Norwalk-like viruses (Feline Calicivirus), Poliovirus and even a common-cold virus (Rhinovirus) are resistant to many surface disinfectants? These viruses are far less susceptible to disinfectants at their in use dilutions than the easier to kill enveloped viruses (such as Influenza A, HIV, Herpes Simplex, Hepatitis B, etc.). The ability to kill non-enveloped viruses in reasonable contact times is relevant and important in all industries. OPTIM 33 TB kills them in 1 minute!
