DQE Adds NanoBio Protect Nasal Antiseptic to Infection Control Protection Line

Healthcare and public safety workers are in constant contact with unknown pathogens out in our community, including COVID-19. Actions like frequent handwashing, wearing a protective mask, and using hand sanitizer are all important infection control practices that add layers of protection to prevent illness. The nose is a key entry point for most respiratory infections, so using a nasal antiseptic adds another layer of safety. Applied with a cotton nasal swab to the skin inside and around the nose, NanoBio Protect kills germs on contact and continues to kill germs for 4+ hours after application.
