Xepi™ Rub M is a broad-spectrum disinfectant with good activity against bacteria, enveloped viruses, fungi and mycobacteria. It inactivates bacterial spores. Xepi™ Rub M mainly acts by coagulating proteins thereby, denaturing them. The proteins that are denatured belong mainly to the cell wall, the cytoplasmic membrane and the various plasma proteins. Finally the increased permeability across the cell wall ultimately causes lysis of the organism.
