Newpharm: The science of disinfection


Newpharm, a CEPA Member in Italy this week issued the below statement on its work in disinfecting hospitals and affected areas during the COVID-19 pandemic. Trained professional pest managers are often the ideal people to use these products for disinfection work, and will give society the best chance at beating COVID-19.

In 1982 in the province of Padua, Italy, Dr Dionisio Bagarollo founded a highly specialised company in the development of solutions for the control of pests and pathogenic microorganisms for the world we all live in. The company's growth has been admirable and forward-looking over years thanks also to the modern approach of Dr Bagarollo’s daughter, Claudia and son, Enrico. Forty years have passed since Newpharm® first entered the national hospital network with a complete range of medical devices for high-level disinfection. 

Moreover, another branch of what has now become a Group of companies – the Newpharm® Group - supported the agro-food industry with products and equipment for disinfecting any kind of surface & environment.

Through multidisciplinary skills and an excellent technical know-how, Newpharm® has managed to develop fungicidal, bactericidal and viricidal solutions also in those sectors which are not strictly related to the health industry, employing its products in many fields. In more recent times, even the new entry of the group, the Newpharm Home & Garden, offers disinfectant products (which were at first thought for the health industry only) to employ in domestic and civil environments. 

In these dramatic hours, while the whole world deals with the Coronavirus pandemic disease, Newpharm® Group has gathered its forces and has come out with disinfectants with viricidal activity to be used in any kind of environment. Besides a complete range of disinfectants to use in different sectors, Newpharm® has created, thanks to the brilliant work of its professionals, cutting-edge application devices for the spraying of products in the environment guaranteeing maximum effectiveness without damaging surfaces or materials. 

Thanks to the collaboration with the main references worldwide in the disinfection sector, the Newpharm® Group has been able to face the emergency by proposing the most effective solutions. These solutions consist in products which are registered as biocides and devices capable of spraying the registered products in different environments, preventing any dangerous or ineffective solution adopted at home by citizens. Reliance on registered products not only guarantees the safety of the community, but also ensure high efficiency against an invisible and strong entity, thanks to tests conducted in laboratory.

The COVID-19 emergency can be overcome through the dialogue between civil society, and the disinfection of the environments with viricidal disinfectants. The application of general disinfecting products or hygiene solutions puts at risk the surrounding environment, without having any effect on the viral particles.

The different regulations issued in pandemic times focus on the environmental interventions which eliminate the virus from surfaces. Recent studies have shown that COVID-19 can resist and be infectious, even if for a relatively short period of time, on inanimate surfaces. If no immediate action is taken, it could be hard to eradicate the virus in a short period of time. For this reason, Newpharm® has created different procedures, also within its premises, whose purpose is the prevention and containment of the virus by eliminating the viral load from the surfaces. These procedures are easy to follow by anyone and in any kind of environment, without risking using dangerous or harmful substances into the surrounding area. In hospitals, which are already extremely crowded, it is fundamental to avoid any type of cross-contamination for the protection of doctors’ and patients’ health.

Among the range of products which the Newpharm® Group offers, it is possible to find disinfectants with viricidal active substances, in order to effectively and quickly deal with any need. At the same time, the interaction between the technical and regulatory teams make sure to assist and guide customers by evaluating each possible solution. The logistics and customer service departments do their utmost to ensure that the goods are quickly dispatched in the various locations. To deal with the emergency, Newpharm® has prepared a health protocol in its headquarters in the Padua area to clean up workplaces and warehouses. These operations are fundamental to decrease the risk of contagion, not only among Newpharm®’s collaborators, but also for all those people who enter its premises. The offices and the warehouses are disinfected daily for the safety of the staff who deals with company materials. During the emergency, the three companies of the Newpharm® Group continue their service so that the food industry, sanitation operations and hospitals are not hampered. Newpharm®’s commitment is real and each of its collaborators is aware of the dramatic health situation afflicting the whole country. For these reasons, Newpharm® sent reports and newsletters addressed to customers and partners, for an immediate collective mobilisation against the greatest tragedy since WWII.

The application equipment has been created in order to be easily used by the majority of the community and to be used also after the COVID-19 crisis. Application systems include generators of dry particles for a maximum distribution of the disinfectant product in the environment without affecting it. These very fine particles do not ruin materials, but they settle evenly on the surfaces eliminating the virus. Thanks to the combination of effective products and adequate equipment, many companies have been able to continue their activities without weighing on the already heavily compromised economic situation. The Newpharm® catalogue offers hand gels, daily-use detergents with disinfectant properties, strong disinfectants for all operating situations. The Technical and Operation services, made up of expert professionals, support both the sales network and the customer to continuously guarantee maximum professionality and effectiveness.
