Generally, when using an alcohol hand sanitiser, the liquid needs to remain wet on your hands or surfaces for at least 2-3 minutes before it takes effect. BioCair is able to eliminate (kill) most pathogens in under 30 seconds, eliminating stubborn spores and fungus in under 60 seconds. A 60-seconds kill time would mean its fast effectiveness in eliminating bacteria and germs. The faster a disinfectant works, the more germs it can kill.
