DEKO 190 ward washer-disinfector

In biology, a pathogen in the oldest and broadest sense is anything that can produce disease. A pathogen may also be referred to as an infectious agent, or simply a germ. While many medical advances have been made to safeguard against infection by pathogens, using vaccination, antibiotics and fungicide, pathogens continue to threaten human life with outbreaks of threatening pathogens spreading illnesses.

Microorganisms can survive on surfaces for days and bacterial species can enter developmental stages to assume dormant forms of life as spores, allowing the bacteria to resist the effects of biocides and biocidal processes, staying viable on surfaces even in the absence of nutrients.

As we continue to experience the devastating Covid-19 pandemic globally, we are all acutely aware that viruses can survive on surfaces for several days if the circumstances are favourable. Therefore measures for better hygiene practices especially in healthcare facilities should be taken into use.
