IPA

It kills the microorganisms by dissolving the plasma membrane of the cell wall. . The plasma membrane of gram negative bacteria consist of thin layer of peptidoglycan that easily destroyed by the alcohol.

FAQs

Sterilization is a physical process mainly used to destroy (Completely) all forms of microorganisms present on a surface or a medium. This process is carried out mainly to preserve the substance for a long time without decay. It is usually done by physical agents such as heat, radiation, filtration, etc.

Disinfection is the chemical process used to eliminate or inhibit the growth of bacteria and other pathogens causing infectious disease in both humans and animals. Disinfectants are the chemical solutions used to make substance infection-free. These include alcohol, iodine, chlorine, etc.

Disinfection and sterilization have a few things in common. These include:

  • Both are used to decontaminate objects.
  • Both processes kill harmful microbes.
  • They destroy bacteria, protozoa, viruses and bacteria.
Disinfection Sterilization
In this, the number of harmful microbes is minimized to a minimal level. In this, the medium is made completely free from all the microbes.
It kills only vegetative cells and not the spores. It kills both, vegetative cells and spores.
Reduces microbes form the objects that can come in direct contact with the skin or the mucous membrane. It completely removes microbes from the objects that can come in direct contact with any breaks in the skin.
Only reduces the effect of microbes. Completely ensures microbes.
Chemical methods are used for disinfection Physical methods are used for sterilization
Phenol, alcohol, chlorine, iodine is some of the disinfecting agents. Dry heat, radiation, stem, filtration is some of the sterilization techniques.
Only adequate cleanliness Extreme cleanliness
Used in daily life processes. Used primarily for medical and research purposes.
For e.g., pasteurization, disinfecting urinals, etc. For e.g., sterilization of instruments used during surgery by autoclaving

Mention the Properties of an Ideal Disinfectant

  • Broad spectrum – Wide antimicrobial Spectrum
  • Fast acting contact time – Rapid kill micro-organisms
  • Not affected by physical factors – Active in the presence of Organic matter (e.g. Blood, Sputum etc)
  • Nontoxic – Non-allergenic, Non-irritative or Non-corrosive
  • Safe on Surfaces – Should not corrode or damage instruments and equipment (e.g. rubber, plastic, cloth, metal etc)
  • Residual effect on treated surface – Should keep surface wet long enough kill/contact times with a single application.

Mention the types of Disinfectants

  • Alcohols – Ethyl alcohol, IPA
  • Biguanides – Chlorhexidine
  • Phenols – Cresol, Lysol, Chloroxylenol
  • Oxidising agents – Hydrogen per oxide, Peracetic acid
  • Heavy metals (Salts) – Mercuric chloride, Copper salts
  • Surface active agents – Detergents and Soaps
  • Dyes – Aniline Dyes, Acridine Dyes, Gentian Violet
  • Halogens – Iodine, Chlorine
  • Quaternary ammonium compounds – Cetrimide
