You can use this product with our foot-operated hand dispenser units to maintain complete hand hygiene. (see related products)
- Formulated with moisturiser to ensure better skin tolerance and not in any way compromise antimicrobial action.
When hands are heavily contaminated, Alcohol based hand rubbing can prevent pathogen transmission more effectively than hand washing with plain soap and water.
- Alcohol solutions containing 60 to 80% alcohol are most effective, with higher concentrations being less potent. This paradox results from the fact that proteins are not denatured easily in the absence of water.
- Hand contamination with transient organisms is significantly less likely after use of an alcohol based hand rub compared with medicated wipe or soap and water.
Some enveloped (lipophilic) viruses such as herpes simplex virus (HSV), HIV, influenza virus, RSV, and vaccinia virus are susceptible to alcohol when tested in vitro. Other enveloped viruses that are somewhat less susceptible, but are killed by 60 to 70% alcohol, including hepatitis B virus (HBV) and probably hepatitis C virus.
Inactivation of naked (non- enveloped) viruses is influenced by temperature, the ratio of disinfectant to virus volume, and protein load
The anti-microbial activity of Biocel's Alcohol Hand Sanitiser Gel results from its ability to denature proteins.

Contaminated hands can be vehicles for the spread of certain viruses and bacteria. To avoid prolonged hand contamination, it is important to use the appropriate hand washing techniques and adequate quantity of the Biocel’s Mano-ster Alcohol Hand Rinse to cover all skin surfaces for the recommended length of time.
Dermal tolerance is one of the main parameters leading to product acceptability that directly influences compliance with hand hygiene. Dermal tolerance of alcohol-based hand rubs is related to the addition of alcohols are not good cleansing agents and their use is not recommended when hands are dirty or visibly contaminated with soil. When relatively small amounts of soil are present, Biocel’s Mano-ster Alcohol Hand Rinse may reduce viable bacterial counts on hands but does not obviate the need for handwashing with water and soap whenever such contamination occurs the quality of the emollient in the product.
Biocel Mano-ster Alcohol Hand Rinse has excellent in vitro germicidal activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative vegetative bacteria (including multi drug-resistant pathogens such as MRSA and VRE), M. tuberculosis, and a variety of fungi.
According to EN 13727:2912+A2:2015, Mano-ster possesses bactericidal activity against all the reference strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia Coli K12, Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus hirae, when tested neat with a contact time of 30 seconds at 20C under clean conditions.
According to EN 13624:2013, Mano-ster possesses yeasticidal activity against the referenced strain of Candida albicans, when tested neat with a contact time of 30 seconds at 20C under clean conditions.
A 30-second rinse is necessary to remove organisms completely from hands.
If hands feel dry after being rubbed together for less time 10 to 15 seconds, it is likely that an insufficient volume of the product was applied.
Washing hands regularly with soap and water immediately before and after using an alcohol-based product is not only unnecessary but may lead to dermatitis.
Bear in mind alcohols such as Biocel’s Mano-ster Alcohol Hand Rinse while rapidly germicidal when applied to the skin, has no appreciable persistent (residual) activity. Regrowth of bacteria on the skin occurs slowly after the use of alcohol-based hand antiseptics, presumably because of the sub-lethal effect alcohols have in some of the skin bacteria.
Dermal tolerance is one of the main parameters leading to product acceptability that directly influences compliance with hand hygiene. Dermal tolerance of alcohol-based hand rubs is related to the addition of the quality of the emollient in the product.
According to EN 13727:2012+A2:2015, Biocel Alcohol Hand Gel possesses bactericidal activity against all of the referenced strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Eschericia Coli K12, Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus hirae, when tested neat with a contact time of 30 seconds at 20C under clean conditions.

Alcohols are flammable, and handling alcohol-based preparations should respect safety standards because alcohol is more volatile, container should be kept closed to ensure evaporation is minimized and initial concentration is preserved.
At present, alcohol-based hand rubs are the only known means for rapidly and effectively inactivating a wide array of potentially harmful microorganisms on hands. WHO recommends alcohol-based hand rubs.
WHO recommended hand drop formulation.
