BIHOCL PureCleanse is a scientifically formulated easy-to-use antimicrobial solution, designed for the advanced treatment of chronic and acute wounds.

Safe, Effective, Thoughtfully Designed Solutions

Treating chronic wounds and burns can be extremely challenging. Now with care plans utilizing the principles of wound bed preparation and T.I.M.E.1,2,3 clinicians are using hypochlorous acid, antimicrobial solutions to effectively reduce chronic wound bed bioburden4,5. In fact, white blood cells produce hypochlorous acid on demand as a first line of natural defense against infection and triggers a cascade of changes that are hallmarks of healing and tissue repair.

With no contraindications for use, hypochlorous acid solutions do not damage healthy cells and tissue as they cleanse and debride the wound bed in preparation for healing 7,8,9,10. As a pure hypochlorous solution, BIHOCL PureCleanse is indicated for the treatment of stage I-IV pressure ulcers, venous insufficiency ulcers, diabetic ulcers, post-surgical wounds, first and second degree burns and minor abrasions6.

Powerful Antimicrobial

BIHOCL hypochlorous technology is based on the body’s innate cellular response to infection. BIHOCL PureCleanse is a broad spectrum antiseptic which is highly effective against a wide range of microorganisms including gram negative and positive bacteria, antibiotic resistant strains, viruses, fungi, yeasts, and prions6.

Groundbreaking Safety

BIHOCL PureCleanse is non-cytotoxic, non-mutagenic, hypoallergenic, non-pyrogenic, endotoxin free and does not require rinsing6. Our pure and stable hypochlorous acid formulation strikes a unique balance between a powerful antimicrobial and the gentleness of saline.

Simple, Innovative Application

BIHOCL PureCleanse has been designed with healthcare providers and patients in mind. Our easy-to-use irrigation attachments, optimized for solution delivery, provide effective wound bed debridement6.

Biofilm Disruption

Over 90% of chronic wounds contain bacteria and fungi living within a biofilm construct¹¹ and create many challenges in wound care. Ample research has shown that hypochlorous acid solutions such as BIHOCL PureCleanse are effective in disrupting and dismantling complex biofilms through the combined effect of its unique biochemistry and mechanical, pressurized delivery1,13.

Odour Control

The odour associated with non-healing chronic wounds is the result of the microbial breakdown of molecules released in tissue and cellular debris. Hypochlorous acid has been shown to dismantle many of these odour-causing compounds, decreasing VOC output and improving the patient’s quality of life5,14.

However, before using BIHOCL PureCleanse it's important to clean the wound and surrounding area thoroughly to remove any dirt or debris. The solution should only be applied using a sterile cotton swab or gauze to prevent the introduction of new or additional bacteria into the wound.

If the wound is dressed, the dressing should be removed before applying the solution. If the wound is painful, it may be helpful to numb the area with a local anesthetic before applying the solution.
