Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Validation Test of Imagard ID 401 and Imagard BIQUAT Disinfectant by USP 1072
Abstract: This study was aimed to generate data to provide a high degree of assurance that the disinfection program will consistently yield results that meet pre-determined specification by using Imagard ID 401 or Imagard BIQUAT or both disinfectants. A clean surface is easier to disinfect and so the cleaning and disinfection programs complement each other. Disinfection efficacy and validation studies are carried in consistent with the United State Pharmacopeia Disinfectants and Antiseptics protocol. The test organisms used include standard strains mentioned in USP. Two different concentrations of both disinfectants showed excellent log reduction against the test organisms at different time interval. The results proved that Disinfectant Imagard ID 401 and Imagard BIQUAT are effective against the standard test organisms and stable for 7 days after dilution. These data add a layer of product safety and generate confidence in the customers ability to deal with an unexpected contamination event.
