Lives depend on it!


There is so much more to disinfectants than reaching absolute disinfection. There are different grades to disinfection - low, intermediate and high-level disinfectants.

  • Low-Level Disinfectants are EPA-registered hospital disinfectants that are effective for vegetative bacteria, most fungi, and most viruses.
  • Intermediate-Level Disinfectants are EPA-registered hospital disinfectants that are effective against TB, vegetative bacteria, fungi and viruses, and some may have spore claims.
  • High-Level Disinfectants fall under EPA jurisdiction. They are effective against TB, bacteria, fungi, and viruses, and some, but not all, spores.
