The Eco-Mist Biotechnics range of natural biocides including TriBioSan™ and BioSan™ conform to
current European standards relating to the control of microorganisms and pathogens in the
healthcare and food sectors. The biocide range has been tested and approved to meet or exceed the
EN1040 – Tests for efficacy against Bacteria
EN13727 – Quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of bactericidal activity of chemical
disinfectants for instruments used in the medical area.
EN14347 – Tests for efficacy against Spores
EN1276 – Tests for efficacy against Bacteria with organic load
EN13697 – Tests for efficacy against Fungus and Mould
Our biocide falls under the category of “Active oxygen” and is classed as a broad spectrum biocide,
meaning it is effective in all pathogenic categories. Unlike Peracetic acid, it is not harmful to people,
animals or the environment.
The correct selection of an appropriate biocide is a critical factor when deciding what level of
cleanliness is required in any facility. The following summary graphic was taken from a paper written
by K. Steinhauer of Schülke & Mayr GmbH, Research and Development, Robert-Koch-Str. 2, D22840 Norderstedt, Germany.
This graphic quickly and visually makes understanding the relative effectiveness (efficacy) of
different biocides, easy to see and understand.
