Disinfectants/Biocides

We test the effectiveness of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in food, industrial, household and public applications according to DIN EN 14885.

Currently validated tests include:

  • EN 1276
  • EN 1650
  • EN 13697
  • Additional tests upon request

We perform disinfectant effectiveness tests according to the German Veterinary Society (DVG)’s test guidelines (in the areas of meat production and food products with animal origins, milk and commercial kitchens). We provide first and second expert reports and also:

  • Determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and suitable neutralization agents
  • Determine the bactericidal and fungicidal effects in the quantitative suspension attempt
  • Perform semi-quantitative suspension tests for capturing the inactivation kinetics under high protein concentrations
  • Determine the bactericidal and fungicidal effects in a germ carrier test
