A west Suffolk company which supplies a hygiene product which has been credited with reducing “superbug” infections on hospital wards is aiming to help local businesses in the battle against swine flu.

Bury St Edmunds-based Arco, the local supplier of products based on the Byotrol cleansing agent found to cut levels of MRSA and C. Difficile, also offers customers advice on how to reduce infection transmission, with the lessons applying to swine flu as to other illnesses.

Tony Smith, branch sales manager at Arco in Bury, said: “The best advice we can give businesses at the moment is to ensure that general infection control practices and good respiratory and hand hygiene is maintained, as this will help to reduce transmission of all viruses, including the human swine influenza.”
