          Abstract

          The testing and label claims of disinfectants to wipe high-touch environmental surfaces rarely reflect their field use where contact times are in seconds with only microliters of the disinfectant deposited on a unit surface area. Therefore, such products must be properly assessed with mechanical/chemical action combined. We critically review current wipe test methods and propose future approaches.
