A Primer on Disinfectants and Boosting Efficacy


Infection Control Today has issued a free report titled “A Primer on Disinfectants and Boosting Efficacy.”

The report presents a review of the basics relating to disinfectants and how to ensure their proper and optimal use in healthcare institutions as part of a structured program to address healthcare-associated infections.

In the report the following is considered:
  • What disinfectants are and what they are designed to do
  • The many factors that influence disinfectant efficacy
  • Boosting effectiveness of cleaning chemistries and avoiding contamination
The report is very U.S.-centric, and it only covers a narrow range of disinfectants. However, it is a fair introduction into the subject.

For details, see Infection Control Today
