The high level disinfection and sterilisation of endoscopes with safe, effective and low toxic products is a target still to be achieved with the currently available products. After a first phase in which the sporicidal efficacy of Adaspor has been analyzed according to the CEN/TC 216- prEN 13704 procedure and the AFNOR NF T 72-231 method, and after the environmental toxicity testing performed with a monitor Bruel and Kiaer Mod. 1302 using a fotoacoustic technology calibrated to evaluate acetic acid, the decision was made to test the product during the normal working activity directly in the endoscopy department.
