Disinfectants for every area

Dr. Schumacher is a manufacturer of disinfectants of all kinds. In addition to hand disinfectants, Dr. Schumacher produces disinfectants for surfaces and medical instruments. Dr. Schumacher is also one of the world's largest manufacturers of wiping products. What makes the hand, skin, surface and instrument disinfectants so successful is that they are all highly effective disinfectants. They all have an appropriate spectrum of activity, which varies depending on the application, and are perfectly adapted to fight bacteria and viruses. The hand sanitizers for daily use are skin friendly and work quickly in the hand. 

The surface disinfectants are available in a wide range of categories, adapted to the specific application. The disinfectant wipes are to be used by hand. Dr. Schumacher also offers surface disinfectants that can be quickly applied to large surfaces.

Hand and surface disinfection in HACCP areas

Customers from a wide range of industries rely on Dr. Schumacher disinfectants. The disinfectant manufacturer supplies companies and service providers in both the medical and non-medical sectors. Dr. Schumacher disinfectants are used wherever bacteria and viruses have to be controlled, i.e. wherever very good hygiene is required and disinfection is necessary. For the food industry, Dr. Schumacher offers a wide range of products that are HACCP compliant and can be used on food processing surfaces.

The hygiene levels developed by Dr. Schumacher give the user a quick overview of the spectrum of activity. PREVENT level disinfectants have a limited virucidal effect, i.e. against enveloped viruses and bacteria, and are levurocidal. The PRESERVE level is intended for areas where increased hygiene is required in everyday professional work. These products have a limited virucidal PLUS effect, inactivating enveloped viruses as well as noro-, adeno- and rotaviruses. They are also effective against bacteria and are levurocidal. The highest level of hygiene, PROTECT, is virucidal and covers both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.

Competence in exceptional cases

For more than 40 years, Dr. Schumacher has used his expertise and experience to achieve effective disinfection. Especially during the COVID 19 pandemic, this know-how about effective spectra and disinfectants was important. The focus was on hand disinfection. As a manufacturer of hand disinfectants, Dr. Schumacher had a special position as a disinfectant manufacturer.

Hand and skin disinfection: protection against viruses and bacteria

In this regard, hand sanitization is critical to hand hygiene to prevent the transmission of bacteria and viruses. A number of Dr. Schumacher's hand sanitizers are effective against the coronavirus that caused COVID-19 during the coronavirus pandemic. With its hand sanitizers and hand sanitizing gels, Dr. Schumacher has prioritized disinfectants for the healthcare sector. However, the company also caters to private individuals with its own range of products for personal use. 

Effective skin and hand disinfection was important during the Corona crisis. But even after that, hand disinfection remains important to protect yourself and others from bacteria and viruses, and to prevent illness. With its hand, skin, surface and instrument disinfectants, Dr. Schumacher continues to pursue its goal of making hygiene and disinfection easy and safe everywhere.
