The Tristel story began in 1993 when the founding shareholders developed a proprietary chlorine dioxide formulation to be used for the disinfection of flexible endoscopes to replace glutaraldehyde. At the time, glutaraldehyde was used universally throughout hospitals in the United Kingdom, and indeed worldwide, for the disinfection of heat sensitive medical instruments. However, it was known to be toxic.

During the following decade Tristel captured significant market share in the United Kingdom hospital market. In June 2005 Tristel plc was listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM market.

By this time the Company had developed a broader vision for the use of its chlorine dioxide chemistry and had developed products for the disinfection of a wide range of non-lumened and single lumened endoscopes and ultrasound probes, and also the disinfection of surfaces in hospitals.

A key milestone in Tristel’s development was the establishment of its manufacturing plant in Cambridgeshire in 2007. The company is compliant to the new versions of the following standards,ISO13485:2016 and ISO9001:2015, MDSAP.Today, Tristel serves the disinfection requirements of veterinary practices via its Anistel product range and those of clean rooms in healthcare and the life sciences industry via its Crystel product range. The Company operates a Class 6 cleanroom to manufacture sterile-packed disinfectant products.

The Company has subsidiaries in Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Italy, Russia, Hong Kong, China, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, India, Malaysia and USA, and sells its products via distributors in more than thirty other countries
