Highlight® is an award-winning powder additive mixed into existing bleach and chlorine disinfectants that are already being widely used. Highlight colorizes the disinfectant so you never miss a spot, modifies the liquid properties to fully cover and adhere to all surfaces, and fades in color from blue to transparent to indicate when the contact time has been met and decontamination is complete. Highlight allows even untrained personnel to properly disinfect surfaces every single time they decontaminate a surface.

Note: Highlight® is not a disinfectant. Highlight is a powder additive combined with existing bleach and chlorine disinfectants.

Patents pending. Highlight is a registered trademark of Kinnos Inc.

Key Features

Immediate Integration

Compatible with existing bleach and chlorine sprays, such as standard 0.5% (5,000 ppm) sodium hypochlorite, calcium hypochlorite (HTH), and NaDCC. Whether it’s a 650 mL trigger spray bottle or a 10 L pump contractor sprayer, Highlight® can be integrated immediately into your current disinfection protocols.

Tested and Proven

As a grantee of the USAID Fighting Ebola Grand Challenge, Highlight® has been field-tested with leading medical organizations in Liberia, Guinea, Haiti, DR Congo, and Uganda. Surveying more than 70 healthcare workers, 99% of respondents found Highlight® to greatly improve visibility and coverage, 97% found Highlight® very easy to use, and 100% prefer Highlight® over bleach or chlorine alone.

Safe and Compliant

Highlight® is not considered a disinfectant by the EPA and does not require registration under FIFRA. Third party laboratory testing has confirmed that Highlight® is not an irritant and does not reduce the efficacy of disinfectants.

Removes Human Error

Human error and a lack of compliance has been shown to leave more than 50% of surfaces in healthcare settings improperly cleaned, putting patients and healthcare workers at risk of infection. Highlight® makes it easier to verify complete coverage of surfaces and helps enforce end-user compliance by ensuring personnel allow a sufficient amount of contact time to ensure the disinfectant fully inactivates pathogens.

Will the blue color stain clothing and skin?
