During a recent conference in Cardiff, scientists revealed new technology which they claimed is better than chlorine-based bleach at killing C difficile bacteria.

In news which may be of particular interest to people with sterile services jobs, researchers from Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University Hospitals NHS Trust announced the results of a 15-week study.

The firm responsible for producing the technology is Byotrol, an international firm which was established in 1997.

Stephen Falder, deputy chairman of the organisation and one of the inventors of the technology, told delegates: "[The results] show that it is possible to move from a reactive cleaning regime to a proactive one that looks to drive down infection levels in the long term."

Meanwhile, Dr Richard Deed of TrusTECH, which supervised the study, added that the technology is non-toxic, non-corrosive and simple to use, meaning it offers real potential to significantly lower healthcare associated infections.
