BIOPERL Infection Control Products

BIOPERL Infection Control Products


Coronavirus can be transmitted from bodily-fluid spills Certain bodily-fluid spills can contain a high load of infectious viruses and evidence from the AGA Institute’s Gastroenterology Journal 1 confirms that SARS-Cov-2 is one of these viruses that survive the stomach and intestine. This is a serious area of infection control we must manage in order to protect our clients. We are also approaching the seasonal Flu and Norovirus period and the combination of these viruses will increase the importance of dealing with bodily-fluid spills quickly, effectively and safely to minimise the risks of cross-contamination and viral spread.

At FORSPILLS, we specialise in clinical spills. In our leading EU infection control laboratory, we developed BIOPERL®+, the first full-spectrum all-spills biocidal absorbent on the market (patent GB1819397.9). Unlike other spill kits you do not need to choose between one type for Blood and another for Vomit and Faeces. BIOPERL®+ is the solution for all types.

Our quick super-absorbent biocidal powder disinfects and absorbs diarrhoea, vomit, sputum, urine and blood leaving a dry, disinfected and safe floor on removal. Use in combination with the FOR SPILLS® disposable card dustpan and scraper to reduce plastic waste.

BIOPERL®+ is a proven absorbent disinfectant with the following EN Standard efficacy claims:

  • Bacteria > 5 Log reduction against S.Aureus in 1 minute
  • Viruses > 6 Log reduction against Adenovirus, Norovirus and Coronavirus in 1 minute & > 5 log reduction against Murine Parvovirus in 5 minutes
  • Yeasts & Fungi > 3 Log reduction against C.Albicans in 10 minutes
  • Bacterial endospores > 3 Log reduction against B.subtilis in 5 minutes

BIOPERL®+ outperforms all other bodily fluid spill kits on the market on speed, performance, ease of use, end result and cost.

  • One product for ALL bodily-fluid spills: blood, urine, vomit, sputum and faeces
  • Patented technology meeting EN Standards ensures confidence in biocidal efficacy
  • Absorbs up to 5 times its own weight (200g of powder absorbs up to 1kg of bodily fluids)
