Introduction: Now a day, there is a crucial need for a quick and effective disinfectant to prevent nosocomial infections in hospitals. Meanwhile evaluation and validation of disinfectants are important. hospital surfaces, instruments, and rooms. the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect, quality and disinfectant activity of the Quick spray (Virobac Spray).
Material and methods: Antibacterial activity of Quick spray (Virobac Spray) was evaluated on four different gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial strain including Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 29737), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 28753), Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922) and Enterococcus faecalis (ATCC 1237. The antimicrobial solution was examined in ½, ¼, and 1/8 dilutions, and the antibacterial effect was determined after the exposure time such as 45, 60, 90, and 120 seconds.
Result: Quick spray (Virobac Spray) show a powerful antibacterial activity even in ½ dilution, also we demonstrate that the antibacterial activity of this solution will be enhanced with increased time of exposure.
Conclusion: the result of this study demonstrated that Quick spray (Virobac Spray) is a broad-spectrum and effective disinfectant and are able to inhibit the growth of a wide range of bacteria including gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
