Bactericidal Tests

Bactericidal activity in a disinfectant is a basic requirement in battling infectious diseases in the medical, veterinary and food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas.

Bactericidal activity refers to the ability of a disinfectant in killing both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. The activity can be evaluated in disinfectants using the suspension test (phase1, phase 2 step 1) or carrier test (phase 2 step 2). Select one of the tests below to learn more.
