Sterilization & Disinfection
Infants
HOME > Sterilization & Disinfection > Infants
With a smart habit for the health of your beloved baby, it is fundamental to prevent your baby from disease infection rather than treating it as a consequence.
What is Medilox-B?
Meedilox-B is a non-toxic high-level disinfectant generated from medical certificate systems of European CE Class IIb and the U.S. FDA Class I based on patented technology, and presents no threats to human body since its key raw material is the ingredient approved by the U.S. FDA (Hypochlorous acid, No. 178.1010). Moreover, it sterilizes 99.9% of pathogenic bacteria, including virus (Inf, Rota, RSV, Hepa-B, Human Noro, Polio), general bacteria, bacillus tuberculosis, MRSA (super bacteria), Salmonella, Listeria, and Pseudomonas, and even fungus such as shigella and candida in less than 30 seconds.
경고
* Beware of imitation products of Medilox.
Not every sanitizer/disinfectant is the same.
Sterilizing power is not easily visible. Be sure to verify if any related product holds reliable test data from professional verification agencies for disinfection. Medilox is a sterilization system widely used by various medical institutions as it has been proved safe and effective in sterilization through diverse data collected from National Institute of Animal Science, many veterinary schools and veterinary clinics as well as Seoul National University, Soonchunhyang University and Veterinary Medical Hospital of Seoul National University.
Certificate of Medilox-B sterilization system
- European CE Class IIb:  Certified for high-level disinfection of invasive medical instruments
- The U.S. FDA Class I:  Certified for disinfection of medical instruments, equipment and medical environment
- Chinese SFDA Class II:  Certified for high-level disinfection of medical instruments and medical environment
- KFDA:  Certified for disinfection of food additives and apparatuses
- Test data carried out by the Korea Postpartum Care Center Association
   (Korea Environment Water Works Institute)
Disinfection + deodorization
Remove odor with Medilox instead of covering it up with scents.
Medilox quickly removes odor by reacting to ammonia generating odor.
Try “'Medilox-B” for odor removal and disinfection of diaper trash bin all at once.
Features of Medilox-S
Powerful bactericidal effect in 30 seconds
It sterilizes up to 99.9% of general bacteria, fungus and virus regardless of species in 30 seconds, and it is a reliable product verified by certification agencies specialized in sterilization and disinfection.
Safety
With non-toxicity and no-irritation, it causes no irritation to eyes or skin as it is a safe product certified as food additive by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety.
Convenience
It can be easily used with its original solution without dilution as it is colorless, odorless and non-irritant.
ECO Friendly
Unlike conventional disinfectants, it is an eco-friendly product leaving no residues, and it is the safest product for users and environment as it transforms into water after elapsed time.
Operating principle of Medilox system
Do you know how your body eliminates bacteria penetrated into your body?
It is unexpectedly a lesser-known fact that Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is spontaneously generated within the blood. Although it’s been known in general that active oxygen dissolves foreign substances such as bacteria, penetrated into our body, the truth is that it changes its form into HOCl for bactericidal action. Neutrophil leukocyte contains a great deal of enzyme called Myelo-Peroxidase (MPO), and this enzyme reacts to chlorine within the body to generate HOCl which sterilizes the bacteria penetrated into the body in a millisecond. The reason why neutrophil leukocyte generates HOCI is that it aims at “safe sterilization”.
Over thousands of years, we, humans have been protecting our bodies by generating HOCI inside the body.

Medilox Technology
Medilox-S provides customers with safe and powerful natural disinfectant by artificially producing HOCI, a natural bactericidal substance generated from immune system inside human body, based on the technology of Medilox.
Sterilizing power of chloride compounds (U.S. EPA)
Sterilizing power of HOCI (Medilox) is 80 times stronger than that of NaOCI.
The results are based on the test of sterilization time for 0.1mg/L chlorine carried out by the U.S. EPA

Test results
While it takes 1 minute for HOCI to kill coliform bacillus, it takes 80 minutes for Sodium hypochlorite.

Interpretation
It proves that bactericidal power of HOCI is 80 times stronger than that of Sodium hypochlorite.

※ The lower the chlorine concentration is, the safer it is; and the shorter the disinfection time is, the more effective it is.

Application scope for Medilox-B

Pre-disinfection to prevent pathogenic infection

Medilox-B can be safely used as it is non-toxic yet provides outstanding bactericidal power to eliminate environmental infective agents that can be contaminated through droplet infection or contacts, including newborn infant's flu, polio myelitis, enteritis virus (Rota, Astro, Noro), Hepatitis B, tuberculosis, mumps and meningitis.

The most ideal domain of disinfectant
Conventional disinfectants carry high toxicity since they need to increase concentration in order to elevate the bactericidal power, therefore, the ones with low toxicity show higher safety. It's because the bactericidal effect and toxicity are not opposed. In other words, bactericidal power and safety are not always proportional to each other. However, Medilox is the most ideal disinfectant fulfilling both bactericidal power and safety.
Domain A   Both bactericidal power and safety are high.
Domain B   Bactericidal power is high but with high toxicity.
Domain C   Bactericidal power is low but with high safety.
Domain D   Toxicity is high but with low bactericidal power.
