What Are “Logs,” and Why Do They Matter in Preventing Infections?

With so many claims and products on the market, choosing the appropriate disinfection solution can be confusing.

This is where the logarithmic scale comes into play. By offering a mathematical system by which to measure and grade how effective a given disinfectant may be against infectious pathogens and germs, the logarithmic scale provides a systematic way to select a solution that eliminates the greatest number of pathogens. Low log disinfection solutions can leave dangerous pathogens.

 

  • 1-log kill = 100,000 Microorganisms remain

  • 2-log kill = 10,000 Microorganisms remain

  • 3-log kill = 1000 Microorganisms remain

  • 4-log kill = 100 Microorganisms remain

  • 5-log kill = 10 Microorganisms remain

  • 6-log kill = 1 Microorganism remains

Uniformly reaching every nook and cranny of an environment with a hydrogen peroxide dry fog. The concentration of hydrogen peroxide is high enough that it is proven to effectively disinfect against germs, and then decomposes into harmless water and oxygen particles.

 

What is ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate)

What is ATP

ATP is the energy molecule found in all plant, animal, and microbial cells. It fuels metabolic processes such as cellular reproduction, muscle contraction, plant photosynthesis, respiration in fungi, and fermentation in yeast. All organic matter (living or once-living) contains ATP, including food, mold, and other microorganisms. The detection of ATP on a surface in water, therefore, indicates the presence of biological matter that may not otherwise be visible to the eye. Where hygiene or cleanliness is crucial ATP testing is an excellent tool for detecting and measuring biological matter that should not be present after cleaning.

What is ATP testing

Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP, is the energy molecule found in all organic material, including bacteria and human tissues, making it a perfect indicator when trying to determine if an environmental surface is clean or not.

What is RLU (Relative Light Units)

RLU is the unit of measurement for light output during a bioluminescence reaction. Luminometers expresses ATP test results in RLU. RLU numbers are directly proportional to the amount of ATP on the test sample, therefore a high RLU indicates a large amount of ATP present, which in turn indicates a high degree of contamination. Low RLU indicates low levels of ATP and low level of contamination.
