PURELL 9637-12 hand sanitizer, 800 mL refill container, is an antimicrobial gel with 70% ethyl alcohol and up to 5% isopropyl alcohol to help reduce the number of germs on hands. The refill container fits a PURELL NXT Maximum Capacity dispenser (sold separately). This hand sanitizer contains aloe, moisturizers, and vitamin E to help keep skin hydrated. Two milliliters of this hand sanitizer meets U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) healthcare personnel hand-washing requirements, as described in the 1994 FDA Tentative Final Monograph for OTC Healthcare Antiseptic Drug Products. This hand sanitizer comes in a pack of 12 refill containers.
Hand sanitizers (also called hand antiseptics) are liquids, gels, or foams that help reduce the number of germs on hands when a small amount is rubbed into the skin; no rinsing with water or drying with towels is needed. In situations when soap and water are not available, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of germs on hands, but do not eliminate every kind of pathogenic microorganism. Hand sanitizers are not as effective when hands are visibly dirty. They are available in a range of sizes, from small bottles for personal use to large mounted dispensers for public or institutional use. They are also available as wipes: small, disposable paper or nonwoven towels soaked in a hand sanitizer liquid. Hand sanitizers are typically part of hand hygiene programs at health care and food processing facilities, where pathogenic microorganisms are common.
