This test is also suitable for testing the effectiveness of hand disinfection.
The surfaces to be sampled have to be cleaned and disinfected and must be well dried before sampling. The contact plates, which need to be labelled on the bottom, must be returned cooled to the laboratory within 24 hours together with the filled-in submission form.
Where applicable, the following multiresistant germs can be identified: MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and/or MRSE (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis) and ESBL (germs forming extended spectrum ß-lactamase). For this, additional costs will be incurred.
If you participate regularly (2x per year), you will get a certificate stating the annual monitoring of the disinfection performance of your surface disinfection test.
For testing the initial contamination, see the service “Surface contamination testing”.
