Contact Lenses & Care
Unsurpassed disinfection efficacy against a full range of microbes
- While used for measuring safety and efficacy, lab-adapted microbes and standard testing conditions provide an assessment of lens care performance
- In addition, Biotrue™ has been tested against a broad range of bacteria and fungi collected from clinically worn lenses, lens cases, and infected eyes
- Achieves consistently high log reductions against S. aureus, MRSA (methicillin-resistant S. aureus), and F. solani
Powerful efficacy against clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus2
Powerful efficacy against clinical isolates of MRSA2
Powerful efficacy against clinical isolates of Fusarium solani1
Biotrue™ solution is also effective against Acanthamoeba
Effective elimination of Acanthamoeba polyphaga trophozoites and cysts3
Also effective against Acanthamoeba castellanii trophozoites and cysts3
1 Results of in vitro study following FDA/ISO stand-alone procedure for disinfecting products. Log reduction values at a minimum soak time without organic soil. Solutions were tested against several strains of S. aureus, methicillin-resistant S. aureus, and F. solani. Vertical bars depict mean log reduction and plotted points depict log reductions against individual clinical isolate strains measured after manufacturers’ recommended disinfecting time (soak only). Clear Care results from separate in vitro study performed following identical test procedures. This test is not required by FDA and ISO standards.
2 There are no FDA/ISO guidelines for testing lens care solutions against Acanthamoeba.
3 Results of in vitro study to evaluate the ability of multi-purpose solution disinfection efficacy against Acanthamoeba castellanii (ATCC 30868) and Acanthamoeba polyphaga trophozoites and cysts. Although no FDA/ISO guidelines currently exist for testing lens care solutions against Acanthamoeba, this stand-alone test was conducted following FDA/ISO procedures as a model to evaluate the inherent microbiocidal activity of a solution within the manufacturers’ recommended disinfecting time (soak only).\
