BS EN 1650:2019 Suspension Testing



Chemical Disinfectant

Unlock the Power of Disinfectant Testing

BS EN 1650 is a significant European standard that establishes guidelines for assessing the fungicidal and yeasticidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics employed in food, industrial, domestic, and institutional settings. This standard plays a vital role in ensuring the efficacy of disinfectant products against harmful fungi and yeast, which contributes to maintaining a clean and hygienic environment.

To evaluate a disinfectant’s performance against fungi and yeast, BS EN 1650 mandates a quantitative suspension test that measures the product’s effectiveness in combating specific strains such as Candida albicans and Aspergillus brasiliensis. By providing a comprehensive testing method and assessment standards, the standard helps manufacturers, regulatory authorities, and end-users identify reliable and efficient disinfectants for controlling fungal and yeast contamination.

Compliance with BS EN 1650 is essential for upholding high standards of cleanliness and fungal control in various sectors. Adhering to this standard not only help prevent the spread of fungal and yeast infections, but also fosters a safe and bacteria-free environment for everyone.

Reviews From Our Happy Clients
We had a requirement to test a sample of a large stock of face masks, to ensure their suitability for use by those supporting the response to the "COVID pandemic".  4ward Testing were recommended to us and they delivered their report well within the agreed timescale. I was impressed with their recognition of the urgency this work required and communications with Polly & Anthony were excellent so I would have no hesitation in using their services again, or in recommending them to others!
