Characteristics of Water that Effect Detergents temperature (hotter the better) hardness (Mg2+ and Ca2+) pH
Order of Susceptibility of Pathogens to Disinfectants enveloped viruses > vegetative bacteria > fungi > non-enveloped viruses > mycobacteria > bacterial spores
Factors Effecting Disinfection Efficacy temperature hydration extraneous organic material pH time number of microorganisms
Factors Effecting Disinfectant Selection efficacy concentration odor/taste stability residual activity time temperature activity with soap/detergent cost
Phenols wide activity - NOT nonenveloped viruses & spores good for organic debris and hard water cheaper
Iodophores wide activity poor in organic debris, sunlight, hard water
Chlorines (Bleach) viruses, fungi, bacteria, algae - NOT spores poor in organic debris cheap
Quaternary Ammoniums bacteria, enveloped viruses poor in detergents and hard water
Chlorahexadine enveloped viruses, bacteria - NOT nonenveloped viruses, spores, fungi, gram (+) cocci poor in hard water and organic debris
Oxidizing Agents anaerobic bacteria (H2O2) wide range, expensive (Virkon-s)
Alcohols bacteria, fungal spores, enveloped viruses - NOT nonenveloped viruses
