Virucidal Tests

Disinfectants with fully virucidal activity prevent diseases caused by enveloped and non-enveloped viruses from spreading.

Viruses are classified as enveloped and non-enveloped. Non-enveloped viruses such as poliovirus and polyomavirus are more resistant to chemical disinfectants compared to enveloped viruses.  Disinfectants can be evaluated using a suspension test (phase 2 step 1).
