Antimicrobials & Disinfectants
Antimicrobials and Disinfectants are substances that are applied to destroy microorganisms that are living on various objects. Disinfection doesn’t always kill all microorganisms, especially when there are bacterial spores present. Disinfectants are different from other antimicrobial agents, which destroy microorganisms within the body, and antiseptics, which destroy microorganisms on living tissues.
There are many different ingredients that are used to provide antimicrobial and/or disinfectant properties including quaternary ammonium salts, alcohol, chlorine derivatives, iodine, and triclosan.
