Einflussfaktoren auf die Flächenleistung wirkstoffgetränkter Einmal-Wischtücher zur Reinigung und Desinfektion im medizinischen Bereich.

The area output of ready-to-use disinfection wipes depends on a variety of properties like active ingredient, absolute liquid volume and and wipe material.

In this study the area output of commercially available ready-to-use wipes for surface disinfection was investigated. Three tables divided into identical sections were used as test surfaces and kept at constant environmental conditions (23 °C, 50 % relative humidity). A total of six alcohol-based and seven alcohol-free single-use wipes were investigated. Each type of wipe was used three times by two independent investigators in a standardized manner. Once the liquid film was interrupted on the surface, the wiped are was measured and the area output calculated. The area output was correlated with the saturation volume, which was determined by comparing the weight of wet and dried wipes. In general, higher area outputs were found for alcohol-free wipes, attributed to the lower vapor pressure of water. A high variance of area output was observed. The area output of alcohol-free wipes varied between 0.12 and 1.64 m2 , while that of alcohol-based products ranged between 0.16 and 0.83 m2. Among the alcohol-based test products, wipes made of polyester fibres were superior in area output compared to cellulose fibres.

Use disinfectants safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
