Features
  • Excelle contains mild non-alkaline cleansers and the adjusted pH is compatible with skin chemistry.
  • 4% chlorhexidene gluconate is fast acting and long lasting. The residual antimicrobial action persists for 6 hours and reduces risk of cross-contamination.

  • Provides antimicrobial protection if a glove failure exposes clinician to blood or other body fluids.
  • Excelle is recommended in facilities at risk of Norovirus or Clostridium difficile outbreaks. The CDC does NOT recommend alcohol hand rubs in this situation.
  • The foamer bottle dispenses Excelle in a light foam that makes thorough hand washing quick and easy.

Precautions
Chlorhexidine gluconate may react with chlorine containing laundry products producing a permanent brown stain on linens and lab jackets. Pre-rinse laundry thoroughly with water before using detergents.
