Unlock the Power of Disinfectant Testing
BS EN 13727 is a critical European standard that establishes guidelines for evaluating the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in the medical area. This standard plays a vital role in ensuring that disinfectant products demonstrate high efficacy against harmful bacteria, contributing to improved hygiene and infection control in healthcare settings.
To assess a disinfectant’s bactericidal potency, BS EN 13727 prescribes a quantitative suspension test that measures the product’s effectiveness against specific bacterial strains, such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. The standard offers a well-defined testing approach and assessment guidelines, facilitating the identification of effective disinfectants by manufacturers, regulatory bodies, and healthcare professionals.
Compliance with BS EN 13727 is essential for maintaining high standards of cleanliness and bacterial infection control in healthcare settings. By ensuring the efficacy of disinfectants against harmful bacteria, this standard aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination, the reduction of infection rates, and the promotion of a risk-free and healthy environment for both patients and medical staff.
