The Problem With Modern Disinfectants & What The Future of Infection Protection Should Look Like

The Role Of Environment In Infection Transmission

Discover the drawbacks of current disinfectants and the exciting innovations poised to revolutionize how we safeguard against harmful pathogens! We invite you to read the latest byline written by Dr. Vikram K. Kanmukhla, VP of Technical Product Management at AvantGuard.

In his article, Dr. Vikram explains how conventional disinfectants, while effective, have their limitations and problems. They provide temporary protection, demanding constant reapplication which can be time-consuming and costly, and certain pathogens may even resist these chemicals, making them less reliable.

Dr. Vikram then goes on to explain the 3 areas to watch where future disinfectants are being made:

  1. Residual Protection - disinfectants that are continuously active and can provide protection between regular cleaning and disinfection

  2. Lower Toxicity and Corrosion - modifying the formulation of disinfectants to reduce their toxicity and corrosiveness while maintaining their effectiveness

  3. Non-Touch Protection - new technologies being developed and deployed that can decontaminate areas in automated ways
