Antigermix Microbicidal Efficacy
More than just High Level Disinfection
Having undergone vigorous testing, the Antigermix has proven Microbicidal Efficacy and Validation in line with global standards.
The Antigermix was tested using the European standard for "dirty conditions" which evaluated the disinfection process using a bacterial load that is 10 times greater than the "clean conditions" adapted to the disinfectants.
These tests were carried out with Mycobacterium terrae and show a complete reduction in accordance with the performance standards for high level disinfection.
Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are responsible for over 5% of human cancers worldwide. Nearly all cases of cervical cancer are the result of HPV infection, as well as a significant number of anogenital and oropharyngeal cancers.
The Antigermix has proven effectiveness of high-level UVC to deactivate HPV16 and HPV18.
In the spirit of always evaluating the limits, additional tests were carried out in the following circumstances:
Each UV-C tube was stained with a Brown stain.
The reflective walls were stained with a Brown stain.
The quartz plate was stained with a Brown stain.
Contamination of the germ carrier is covered with a thin layer of ultrasound gel.
The results showed the Antigermix retained full efficacy even in sub-optimal simulated conditions
