The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and other health experts promote hand hygiene as the most important hygiene measure in preventing the spread of infection from any facility. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are widely used for achieving hand hygiene. The use of hand sanitizer and disinfects result sustained improvement in hand-hygiene compliance, coinciding with a reduction of many resistant and prone infections. The study aimed at determining the efficacy of Microbat (Sterigard) hand rub and Microguard (Sterigard) Hand disinfectant by ASTM E2755 method which included 6 different volunteers for the test procedure. The results showed more than log 4 reduction for bacteria, yeast and molds. This proves the efficacy of both Microbat (Sterigard) hand rub and Microguard (Sterigard) Hand disinfection and should be considered for regular usage for achieving aseptic environment.
