Disinfectants prevent the transmission of pathogenic germs

The German Pharmacopoeia (DAB) defines the term disinfection as a procedure “to put dead or living material in a state that it can no longer infect”.

You can do this with disinfectants Minimize riskto become infected by bacteria, viruses or other potentially pathogenic microorganisms and get sick. The thorough and regular use of disinfectants is therefore very important, especially in the medical field. Because meet in hospitals and care facilities People with weak immune systems and various diseases on top of each other, making a high risk of infection arises.

In order to effectively kill or inactivate bacteria, viruses, fungi and the like, it is necessary to Disinfectants with the corresponding spectrum of activity to select.



  • Bactericidal: Bactericides kill bacteria.

  • Bacteriostatic: Bacteriostatic disinfectants inhibit the growth of bacteria.

  • Mycobactericide: Mycobactericidal disinfectants kill highly pathogenic mycobacteria.

  • Tuberculocide: Tuberculocidal disinfectants kill tuberculosis bacteria.

  • Virucidal:
    - virucidal: Virucidal disinfectants inactivate all viruses (e.g. noroviruses) and are therefore ideally suited for combating all viruses.
    - limited virucidal PLUS: Limited virucidal PLUS effective disinfectants inactivate enveloped viruses as well as some important enveloped viruses.
    - limited virucidal: Disinfectants with limited virucidal properties only inactivate enveloped viruses (e.g. HIV, hepatitis B or C viruses). They are not effective against non-enveloped viruses.

  • fungicide: Fungicides kill fungi.

  • Levurocide: Levurozide disinfectants kill yeasts.

  • Sporicidal: Sporicides make spores incapable of germination.

Stop antibiotic-resistant bacteria!

Some bacterial diseases are caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria (e.g. MRSA) triggered and therefore cannot be combated with the help of antibiotics. It is therefore very important to get antibiotic-resistant bacteria on surfaces and on the hands at an early stage kill before they cause disease, difficult to treat.


Thermal disinfection vs. chemical disinfection

Basically, disinfection can take place using two different methods:


  • thermal disinfection: Germ reduction through heat
  • chemical disinfection: Germ reduction through Disinfectants


In many cases, thermal disinfection is not possible. For example, hands cannot be heated to extreme temperatures for the purpose of hand disinfection in order to be able to kill the bacteria on the skin. There are also heat-sensitive surfaces and medical products.
In all of these cases, chemical disinfection is necessary, i.e. disinfection with disinfectants.
