Theoretical and Experimental Aspects of Microbicidal Activities of Hard Surface Disinfectants: Are Their Label Claims Based on Testing Under Field Conditions?

Although such surfaces are routinely disinfected, the testing and label claims of many common disinfectants do not reflect the realities of field use. A study was conducted to determine the influence of several crucial factors on the action of disinfectants in general, and to assess the killing efficiency of selected chemistries related to their drying times and label-specified contact times using a quantitative carrier test.

Should the AOAC Use-Dilution Method Be Continued for Regulatory Purposes?

The study reviews UDM from a statistical perspective, identifying significant gaps in the reproducibility of the test data as predicted by statistical analysis and those presented to the EPA for product registration. UDM’s poor reproducibility, along with its qualitative nature, requires the concentration of the active ingredient to be high enough to ensure all or most carriers to be free of any viable organisms. This is not in accord with the current trends towards sustainability, human safety, and environmental protection.
