Disinfectant Testing

Disinfectant tests have the same final purpose, namely measuring the antimicrobial activity of a chemical substance or preparation, a large number of testing methods has been described. They are subdivided into suspension tests, carrier and surface disinfection tests and other practice-mimicking tests. The suspension tests comprise qualitative and quantitative suspension tests, and, as derived tests, the determination of the phenol coefficient and capacity tests. There is an essential difference between a carrier test and a surface disinfectant test: in the former case the carrier is submerged in the disinfectant solution during the whole exposure time, whereas in the latter case the disinfectant is applied on the carrier for the application time and thereafter the carrier is drying during the exposure. following are the tests.
