Will add new formats including handy wipes to formats that include soluble sachets and trigger spray bottles
Sirane has joined forces with MTP Innovations, based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, UK, to market and develop DiffX, a 100% effective cleaning and disinfection solution.
DiffX will be added to the Telford, Shropshire, UK-based company's Sira-Care range and Sirane is already working on new formats to complement the existing soluble sachets and trigger spray bottles – the first of which is expected to be a pack of Sira-Care DiffX handy wipes.

Simon Balderson, Managing Director of Sirane, said: 'Sira-Care DiffX is a fantastic product, and our partnership with MTP Innovations is a perfect fit. We can take the work they have done, and adapt it, developing new formats and new uses as we build on the potential that DiffX offers.'
Mike Jepson, MTP Innovations' Managing Director, commented: 'As an SME with a small team, MTP decided to find a global distributor spanning multiple sectors. Sirane operates in the global arena and has grown year-on-year offering innovative products, continuous product development and excellent customer service.
'Sirane offers MTP the opportunity to be represented on a global platform while extending our own product offering to existing and new customers.'
DiffX is non-chlorine-based, non-corrosive, cleaning and disinfecting at the same time, and eliminating all surface contamination – including MRSA and viruses, C. Diff spores, Norovirus, TB and Mycrobacteria.
The company says DiffX can also save users money by keeping hospital wards clean, disinfected and infection free, reducing lost bed days, the cost of decontamination, antibiotics and treatments, as well as having to pay for staff sickness and temporary staff.

Jonathan Mason, Business Development Manager at Sirane, added: 'Sira-Care DiffX is very easy to use. The soluble sachets are simply dissolved in warm water – and the disinfectant becomes active. Once made up the solution can be used for up to 24 hours.'
DiffX will be targeted initially at hospitals, health centres and care homes, but the scope for the product is much broader as anywhere that is regularly cleaned is a potential customer.
Sira-Care DiffX will be among the products exhibited at Med-Tech 2015, taking place from 29–30 April at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
