Per­for­mance

Consumer Voice - - Special Update -

An­tibac­te­rial per­for­mance tests – specif­i­cally for an­tibac­te­rial ac­tiv­ity, ‘zone of in­hi­bi­tion’ and bac­te­rial ‘rate of kill’ ef­fi­cacy on con­tact – were car­ried out to judge the ef­fec­tive­ness of the liq­uid hand wash in re­mov­ing bac­te­ria.

i) An­tibac­te­rial ac­tiv­ity is de­ter­mined by com­par­ing the ef­fec­tive­ness of an­tibac­te­rial chem­i­cals present in a cer­tain quan­tity of liq­uid hand wash with spec­i­fied max­i­mum in­hi­bi­tion con­cen­tra­tion. Be­sides, re­duc­tion in sur­vivors of ger­mi­cide de­ter­mined in terms of ii) zone of in­hi­bi­tion of bac­te­rial growth as well as iii) rate of kill against a spe­cific or­gan­ism is an­a­lysed for judg­ing ef­fec­tive­ness. Zone of in­hi­bi­tion test­ing is a means to mea­sure the abil­ity of an an­timi­cro­bial agent to in­hibit the growth of micro­organ­isms.
