In all healthcare settings, cleanliness and hygiene are of vital importance. Our products are used in the clinical environment as part of a comprehensive hygiene concept. When developing our deconex® cleaning agents and disinfectants, we put thorough testing of performance, effectiveness and material compatibility at the top of the list. To ensure that our products are ready for the market, we work in close cooperation with recognised test laboratories and with manufacturers of medical products. External tests are supplemented with in-house test methods. Our product performance claims are therefore always evidence-based. This gives you the reliability you want for every application.

Analytically clean surfaces are indispensable for validated cleaning in pharmaceutical production and in the cosmetics industry. However, they are also required in laboratory glassware cleaning and in the dairy industry. We support you in the development of new cleaning processes: after analysing your cleaning task, our experts develop a solution based on proven processes and our deconex® products. This demonstrably improves process reliability and makes processes more economical.

Professional hand and surface disinfection are easy steps to take in order to protect staff, patients and co-workers and to ensure active infection prevention.

Our own research and development is one of our core areas of expertise. Our R&D team develops new formulations with an eye on the needs of our customers and markets and the ever-tightening legislation. Close cooperation with our in-house Quality Management and Regulatory Affairs departments ensures that our products meet both customer and regulatory requirements.

We also continuously and intensively focus on the most important aspects of typical cleaning issues and the development of comprehensive solutions.
