How Whiteley Can Help

Whiteley are experts in Infection Prevention.

Our well-known brands include Viraclean, V-Wipes, Speedy Clean and Surfex which are used throughout the public and private hospital network.   

Viraclean is a very well-known brand within hospitals and a leader in the hospital grade disinfectant category.

Other Whiteley products on the ARTG include products such as Surfex. It not only disinfect surfaces, but also removes bacterial biofilms and the dangerous pathogens that they harbour. Failure to remove biofilms will often lead to repeat outbreaks of infection.
