Research for infection protection


Efficacy against enveloped and nonenveloped viruses. Efficacy testing is carried out with representative Test viruses, as it is not possible to test disinfectants for their activity against all individual viruses directly for methodical reasons and due to the large number of known viral pathogens. In Germany, adeno-, polyoma-, polio- and vaccinia viruses have been selected as test viruses for testing disinfectants for their virucidal activity. At European level, the virucidal activity is tested with adenovirus and poliovirus.
