Overall Finding

Overall Finding Impact’s LFDP18 single-use floor pad achieved at least a 6 log10 reduction (99.9999%) of 4 challenged microorganisms including Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 9027, Enterococcus hirae ATCC 10541, and Candida albicans ATCC 10231. The substrate was VCT (vinyl composition tile) coated with polyurethane (PUR) coating to simulate multiple real-world applications and environments. Detailed Results: LFDP18 – Single Use Microfiber Floor Pad Test Methodology Test Article Impact’s LFDP18 single-use floor pad. Standard DIN EN 16615:2014 – Modified. Quantitative test method for the evaluation of bactericidal and yeasticidal activity on no-porous surfaces with mechanical action employing wipes in the mechanical area 4 field test. Article Prep Samples were processed into 3 x 5 in. (7.6 x 12.7 cm). Immediately prior to testing each test article was dampened with sterile deionized water, and manually wrung. Test System Prep A suspension of indicated microorganisms was prepared with Sterile water and calibrated using a photo spectrometer. Bacterial suspensions were diluted to 0.67 – 0.7 OD and Yeast suspensions were diluted to 0.14 - 0.17 OD. Each VCT and glass surface was washed in hot soapy water, rinsed with tap water, followed by rinsing with deionized water. Prior to testing, the tiles were sanitized with 70% isopropyl alcohol and allowed to dry. Application Test field 1 of the test surface was inoculated with 50 ul of the prepared inoculum and left to dry at 25°C. Following the drying period, the moistened test article was used to wipe the tile starting in test field 1 and moving through test field 4. The wiping apparatus was then rotated 180 degrees, and then used to wipe from test field 4 through test filed 1. Every individual test field was then extracted utilizing a sterile sponge in a solution of sterile water. Aerobic plate counts were set up utilizing standard methods agar spread plate method. Exposure Conditions The inoculated plates were inverted and incubated under conditions favorable for growth: 30- 35°C for 24-48 hours in aerobic conditions. 4 Easier. Safer.
