Yeasticidal and Fungicidal Tests

Yeasticidal and fungicidal disinfectants prevent yeast and fungal infections from spreading in high-risk areas.

Infections caused by these microorganisms are quite common, but they can be prevented with proper disinfection procedures. Disinfectants can be evaluated for yeasticidal and fungicidal activities through suspension test (phase 2 step 1) or carrier test (phase 2 step 2 test). Select one of the tests below to learn more.
