An ideal disinfectant should have no protein fixating effects, a fast and highly efficient decontaminating/ inactivating activity on a broad range of bacteria, viruses, fungi as well as on prions and should be non-corrosive to instruments and easy to use.<br><br> Scientists from the Robert Koch-Institute developed a disinfectant which meets all these requirements. The developed disinfectant is a new formula-tion for chemical disinfection consisting of three components: a detergent, an alkali hydroxide and an alcohol. Furthermore, it has no fixating effects and is active on a broad range of bacteria, viruses, fungi as well as prions. <br><br> Inactivation of all these pathogens resulting in a reduction factor of log 4 or more takes place at room temperature within an incubation time of only 10-20 minutes. The new disinfectant allows for fast and highly efficient decontami-nation at user and instrument friendly conditions.<br><br> The formulation has been tested under various conditions including those in which the contaminants are enclosed in brain homogenate or blood.<br><br> Typical applications for the newly developed disinfectant are the decontami-nation of surgical, dental, diagnostic and laboratory instruments as well as other medical devices.
