This article gives an overview of the challenges involved with surface disinfection and material compatibility, along with solutions to help combat this challenge.

Excerpt:
“Thorough and effective surface disinfection is top-of-mind in any infection prevention program, but there is one crucial element that can be challenging to implement in today’s fast-paced, rapidly changing healthcare environment – one that plays a key role in maximizing patient safety, surface material performance, and device maintenance. This crucial factor is surface material compatibility, or the ability of material to be exposed to a disinfectant’s chemistry without exhibiting reduced functionality as a result.”
