How can we check the operation of disinfection?

With both methods of disinfection that we use, of course, it is also possible to check the operation.

In UVC disinfection, we also rely on microbiological research, where we can see by a certain process how many times the amount of microorganisms is reduced. This is called a log reduction.

Another way to check the operation of disinfection is by measuring the required dose of UVC radiation falling on a specific surface that you want to disinfect. This is done with UVC radiation meters at the radiation site. With the help of the obtained data, we can then claim that the required dose of UVC radiation really disinfected the surface. (What dose of UVC exposure is needed to disinfect?)

In the case of disinfection with ozone and or hydrogen peroxide, in addition to microbiological measurements, the measurement can also be performed with rapid ATP tests, which provide basic information that hygiene, for example, the cleanliness of a certain part of the surface decreases after disinfection itself. Oxidation or destruction of microorganisms occurs immediately, so we can perform the results BEFORE and AFTER disinfection and compare the obtained values. Rapid ATP hygiene tests can also be performed on site in our company.
