Unlock the Power of Disinfectant Testing
BS EN 1275 is an important European standard that sets the guidelines for evaluating the basic fungicidal and yeasticidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics. This standard ensures that disinfectant products meet specific criteria to combat fungi and yeast, playing a crucial role in maintaining cleanliness in various sectors, such as healthcare, food, and hospitality industries.
To assess a disinfectant’s performance, BS EN 1275 mandates a quantitative suspension test that measures the product’s effectiveness against specific fungal and yeast strains, including Candida albicans and Aspergillus brasiliensis. By establishing a transparent testing process and appraisal benchmarks, the standard enables manufacturers, regulatory authorities, and end-users to determine the efficacy of disinfectants and antiseptics in controlling fungal and yeast contamination.
Compliance with BS EN 1275 is essential for maintaining high standards of sanitation and fungal control in public and industrial settings. Adhering to this standard not only helps prevent the spread of fungal and yeast infections, but also promotes a secure and hygienic environment for everyone.
