Original review

Zon L, Bellon L, Gaudron A, Evaluation de l’efficacité d’un bionettoyage des surfaces par un appareil de désinfection par voie aérienne en soins intensifs d’hématologie, 10ème congrès de biologie et hygiène hospitalière, 2016


To assess the value of airborne surface disinfection (ASD) prior to a patient’s entry into a controlled risk ward such as a haematology intensive care unit.


  • Use of a ASD device that complies with the NF T72-281 standard at a flow rate of 3ml/m3 based on peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
  • Before cleaning, 65% of the samples (39/60) were in compliance.
  • After cleaning with detergent 75% of the samples ( 45/60) were in compliance.
  • After ASD 98,3% ( 59/60) are compliant. One non-compliant sample is located on the toilet push button.
  • All the swabs validate the presence of H202 on the surfaces.


ASD is a powerful method for controlling the patient’s surrounding environment.
