Environmental Monitoring Program

Help ensure your team delivers the cleaning and disinfection results you expect with Ecolab’s Environmental Monitoring Program that uses the DAZO® fluorescent gel to objectively measure the thoroughness of disinfection cleaning on critical surfaces in hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Measuring Results and Delivering Outcomes

Recent studies show the environment to be a contributing factor to the spread of pathogens to patients, and should be an area of focus in a complete infection prevention program. The new CDC Toolkit: Options for Evaluating Environmental Cleaning, acknowledges the environment's role in the spread of infections, and the need to take preventative action to continuously evaluate and improve environmental cleaning to reduce associated risks.

  • In peer reviewed studies, DAZO® Fluorescent marking gel is the most widely used and accepted environmental monitoring tool (Studies available upon request)
  • DAZO® provides objective evaluation of critical cleaning outcomes
  • Real-time, online cleanliness reports help drive continuous improvement and provide compliance with current recommendations
