Efficacy of silver-peroxide compared to Loxyde (non silver stabilised peroxide)
Hereunder we compare some test results of a silver-peroxide with Loxyde using standard EU norm tests.
|Type test||Product||Micro-organism tested||dosage||Disinfection time||Results Log reduction||Pass/fail|
|EN 1276:2009||Loxyde||E. hirae||2% 1||5 minutes||>5||PASS|
|EN 1276:2009||Silver-peroxide||E. hirae||5% 2||5 minutes||<2||FAIL|
|EN 1650:2008||Loxyde||Candida albicans||2% 1||5 minutes||±5||PASS|
|EN 1650:2008||Silver-peroxide||Candida albicans||5% 2||5 minutes||<1.5||FAIL|
1 This is 2% of the standard Loxyde solution containing 35% hydrogen peroxide.
2 This is 5% of the standard silver-peroxide solution containing 50% hydrogen peroxide
Silver-peroxide failed both tests!
Based on this example, Silver-peroxide is not very fast working or as effective as it claims to be.
