Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterococcus faecalis are largely responsible for hospital-acquired infections and have been taken as standard indicators, because they are the most aggressive class of bacteria, which sometimes can even be resistant to antibiotics.
When a product can be called antibacterial
After strict lab tests, Bios Antibacterial® HYDROTECT turned out to be extremely effective, as it can remove 99.9% of the main four bacterial strains living in confined areas: Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. As a matter of fact, a 100% anti-bacterial effect cannot be ensured, so the effectiveness threshold has been set by researchers all over the world at over 90%, because only at such levels can a really significant reduction in bacteria be measured. That’s why in terms of antibacterial effectiveness the scientific community will not take into account any rating under 90% and products that fail to achieve such level may not be called antibacterial. In addition, research has shown that Bios Antibacterial®HYDROTECT needs no light to be activated, and in a humid environment, which is traditionally a fertile ground for the growth of bacterial flora, its beneficial effects are even greater. Note, however, that, even if capable of removing 99.9% of the 4 main bacterial strains living in the environment and reducing viral growth, the Bios Antibacterial®HYDROTECT technology cannot ensure perfect immunity to infections. Therefore, depending on the way a place is to be used, the surfaces should be treated with appropriate cleaning and disinfection procedures.
