D-125 VLC is a highly effective concentrate for the simultaneous disinfection, deodorisation, cleaning and care of all dental suction systems, amalgam separators and spittoons. Daily application of D-125 VLC ensures technically and hygienically sound operation of dental Suction systems, even with high levels of microbial contamination and debris (e.g. saliva, amalgam, dentine dust, blood, etc).
Biofilm: A threat in Dental Settings
Bacteria within biofilms are up to 1,000 times more resistant to antimicrobials than are the same bacteria

These Biofilm forming pathogens include gram-positive species (Bacillus spp, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus spp. Lactobacillus Plantarum and Lactococcus lactis) and gram-negative species (e.g. Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa).
