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
