When is it appropriate to use products under clean conditions or dirty conditions?

The use concentrations under clean conditions (low load) should always be used if devices or surfaces have been cleaned prior to use.

In the case of cleaning & disinfection of instruments, always use the products in accordance with the specified concentrations/application times under dirty conditions (high load).

In the case of surface disinfection, there is the option of first absorbing any heavy dirt with a soaked cloth and then carrying out the disinfection with products tested under clean conditions.
