IQ Sterilant Solution efficacy screening:
The product was tested according to SANS 1196:2009 (Ed. 3) “Detergent-disinfectants based on organic halogen compounds (other than iodine compounds)”.
Only the bactericidal activity of the product was tested in this procedure.
The product was tested against Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15442, Escherichia coli ATCC 10536 and Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538.
Note: In instances where there was no bacterial growth present, the value will be indicated as “1” in order to accommodate the number on a logarithmic scale. Where there was too many bacteria to enumerate, the value will be indicated as 30 000, the maximum detection limit of the test.
