Crosstex International, Inc. announces the launch of 8558-STERILE, a new toll-free infection control helpline, answered only by clinicians, as reported by The Infection Control Helpline, open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST, is available to anyone, not just Crosstex customers.

A spotlight on infection control, after breaches in the dental sector made headlines, had many practices reviewing their procedures and manufacturer’s product IFUs (Instructions for Use) and monitoring CDC compliance guidelines.

An industry leader in personal protection equipment (face masks, bibs, gloves), Crosstex has two testing laboratories that process more than 2.5 million mail-in spore tests annually, according to the report.  As part of the service, Crosstex calls its customers (everyone from dentists and veterinarians to government agencies) to alert them of a failed test and then offers guidance.
