Disinfection is an essential means of reducing the number of viable microorganisms on surfaces, devices and the skin. A wide range of disinfectant products are available, which vary in terms of their active ingredients, how they can be applied and their intended use. This article discusses the use of chemical disinfectants and the factors affecting their activity. In particular, it highlights the importance of understanding product labelling, efficacy claims and the regulatory requirements underpinning their application in practice.
