Conclusions of laboratory test:

Bacteria reduction tests:

All bacteria tests have performed well in excess of the test requirement. In all cases a 2% dilution of Loxyde was sufficient to meet and exceed the test requirements for bacterial disinfection under EU norm requirements. In comparison, normal hydrogen peroxide would require a 20% dilution to meet test requirements.

Fungus reduction tests:

All fungus tests have performed well in excess of the test requirement. In all cases a 2% dilution of Loxyde was sufficient to meet and exceed the test requirement for fungal disinfection under EU norm requirements. In comparison, normal hydrogen peroxide would require a 20% dilution to meet test requirements.

Spore reduction tests:

Spores are extremely difficult to kill. Normal hydrogen peroxide has no significant effect on spores. So when it came to doing a spores reduction test we had to take a gamble with the dosage rate. We finally decided on 20% as this is the highest dose that we use when fogging Loxyde. Ultimately 20% proved overkill as at the conclusion of the test no cells remained. Based on this we were told by the testing lab that a 5% solution would probably have met the testing criteria.

Thai approval for a disinfectant:

Although Loxyde has obtained approval under the name Oxibon in Thailand, the test was done at a 1:5 dilution (20%). This is serious overkill and could easily have been performed at 2% and still meet test criteria. However the decision was left to the local dealer in Thailand who due to the requirement of 2 x 60 tests where only 1 can fail per organism tested, decided to play it safe.
