Surface Disinfection:
What to consider?

For surface disinfection to be effective, some basic rules must be followed.

In addition to hand disinfection, surface disinfection is one of the most important measures in healthcare settings to limit the transmission of pathogens. Surfaces in the immediate patient surroundings and high-touch surfaces with frequent hand or skin contact must be disinfected routinely. When disinfecting surfaces, it is important to observe some rules such as the correct dosage, complete wetting and exposure times, otherwise the disinfection may be less effective. The correct choice of disinfectant is also relevant. In this section, we provide you with comprehensive information, e.g. on wipe dispenser systems, spray-wipe disinfection or exposure times for surface disinfectants.
