BS EN 1276:2019 Suspension Testing

Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics. Quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in food, industrial, domestic and institutional areas. Test method and requirements (phase 2, step 1)

Unlock the Power of Disinfectant Testing

BS EN 1276 is a crucial European standard that sets forth guidelines for evaluating the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in food, industrial, domestic, and institutional areas. This standard ensures that disinfectant products demonstrate a high level of effectiveness against harmful bacteria, contributing to improved public health and hygiene.

To measure a disinfectant's bactericidal potency, BS EN 1276 prescribes a quantitative suspension test that assesses the product's ability to reduce bacterial contamination, including strains such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus hirae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The standard provides a clear testing methodology and evaluation criteria, facilitating the identification of effective disinfectants by manufacturers, regulatory bodies, and end-users.

Adherence to BS EN 1276 is vital for maintaining high standards of cleanliness and infection control in various sectors. 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 harm-free and clean environment for all.
