This most commonly applies to bx and hand gels which need to be especially effective for use in institutional settings, particularly in clinical settings where risk of viral and bacterial infection is notably higher than in other public spaces.

This standard was introduced in and again is determined by a test of bactericidal activity, in which a concentration of Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Staphylococcus aureus, or occasionally both is used as a test microorganism for the chemical disinfecting agent or sanitiser to perform effectively against.


As before, a five minute window is given for the chemical to 113697 with the infection. Again, typically many products will perform faster than this, but with hand gels especially there is a longer contact period once the gel is applied in spite of evaporation of of sanitising fluids over time.
