Sterile Doctor™ controls bacteria, viruses, fungi and mold which can cause sickness, stains, odors or surface damage, through a physical mode of action that neutralizes microbes which come in contact with treated surfaces. The positive ionic charge in the antimicrobial active attracts microbes to a treated surface and physically ruptures their cell membranes. The active ingredient is stabilized with surface tension releasers and other ingredients to bond it to almost any surface, making the entire material antimicrobial. The unique chemistry offers an industry leading level of performance for long term efficacy and durability.
Where most commercial antimicrobials, cleaners and disinfectants are primarily effective only when wet, Sterile Doctor™ provides continuous protection for extended periods of time. Because it bonds to a treated surface at the molecular level, Sterile Doctor™ is not removed by routine cleaning processes, and traditional cleaning products will not adversely impact its’ performance. Sterile Doctor™ has been demonstrated to neutralize or significantly reduce the levels of microbes on treated surfaces for up to twelve months or longer with a single application.
Eco-friendly, "Green" and Safe"

Sterile Doctor™ eliminates the need for potentially harmful chemicals. Unlike chemical disinfectants, and silver- or triclosan-based antimicrobial treatments, Sterile Doctor’s proprietary silane treatment is a non-leaching non-sacrificial technology.
In sacrificial technologies, the active chemical agents lose part of their molecular structure in the destruction of targeted organisms, sometimes releasing harmful byproducts into the environment and into our bodies. In the case of non-sacrificial technologies (such as silane), the process does not require the active ingredient to be compromised and leaching does not occur. And because the target organism does not metabolize, Sterile Doctor™ microbes are unlikely to develop resistance compared to other antimicrobials with different mechanisms of action.
Sterile Doctor™ Technology is based on a unique antimicrobial technology that effectively controls and ruptures surface-damaging bacteria, viruses, fungi and mold on a wide variety of treated articles and substrates. The base active ingredient is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and comparable regulatory bodies around the world.
Through extensive studies, this technology was found to be effective against a broad spectrum of viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae and mold. Test information on the Sterile Doctor™ web site and/or provided by GSS has been prepared in response to numerous requests for a list of microorganisms against which the technology is effective. They were selected to provide a test spectrum which is representative of significant types and varieties of microorganisms.
Bacteria, viruses, fungi and mold can be discovered in every environment and are a part of normal everyday life. Even in the cleanest environments, many kinds of microbes will begin to multiply on surfaces and sometimes reach harmful levels.
