DISINFECTANT FOR HYGIENIC HANDRUB

NON-POROUS SURFACE (GLOVE) QUANTITATIVE ASSAY WITH MECHANICAL ACTION

MEDICAL DOMAIN

Virucidal activities of chemical disinfectant used for hygienic handrub with mechanical action are usually determined using quantitative suspension NF EN 14476 (JAN.2017) standard.

VirHealth develops innovative protocols to evaluate disinfectant activities of hygienic handrub process in real conditions.


The aim of this test consist to the realization of calibrated viral surface deposit (influenza virus, norovirus…) in clean/dirty conditions on defined zones on the surface glove (right hand). The disinfectant activity was determined after a mechanical action period (left hand/ right hand) according to used conditions. The impact of the mechanical action on the contamination of 6 defined zones of the 2 gloves was determined.

Preliminary essays and controls for the determination of virucidal activity (liquid and surface) were included in the assay.

Possibility to evaluate microbicidal activities (bacteria and yeast) with similarly protocols adapted to NF EN 13727 and NF EN 13624 standards.
